Mysticism and esoteric practices in Silat

    I have heard of some mystic practices used in Silat, where the person calls the spirit of an animal into their body before sparring or going into battle, then it is the animal doing the movements and not the person. Does anyone have any more information regarding these practices, I’m interested to learn more.

    There were mystic practices at one point. But after the practitioners converted to Islam, all of these practices are not used in the modern silat. There are some Silat masters who still retain this knowledge. Malaysia and Indonesia would be the place to seek this knowledge

    Hi James, I recommend checking out Guru Steven Benitez’s course on Silat Body Conditioning & Esoteric teachings.

    The esoteric aspect of Satria Fighting Arts is a massive part as it carries the “soul” of the art, providing the practitioner a deeper understanding of Numerology, Life, and Nature works, and how they apply in our lives; knowing the difference between the true ‘Self’ and the false ‘self’ and how Karma works; understanding times and seasons, the Universal Laws and understanding how to work with them, etc. These lessons will provide you with a good understanding of life and how energies work, which you can immediately apply in your life. In addition, you will receive practical lessons to work with, enabling you to activate a more empowering life. Finally, you will learn the principles of living a fruitful, peaceful, and harmonious lifestyle.
