Silat Lincah:

Silat Lincah

Silat Lincah A fast Malaysian style that favors evasion with follow up sweeps, locks, chokes etc. It has a formidable reputation in Malaysia and Indonesia as a fighting style. The syllabus uses extensive stepping drills and is taught as empty hands first, though ultimately Lincah specializes in the use of the Keris dagger and Parang (machete). This system is taught to students before any others. The current Maha Guru of Lincah In Malaysia founded it in the 1960’s from another style known for its aggressive style of play. Guru Glenn Lobo learned this style initially from 5 of the most senior instructors in Lincah and then also from the Maha Guru himself, when in 1993 he became Wakil Maha Guru, and also the only personal student of the Maha guru. (There are over 1,000,000 students of Lincah in Malaysia, and Glenn was the ONLY personal student…). Glenn learned primarily from Cikgu Johari Bin Jantan. He is also the Ketua Jurulatih Kanan Europe - chief instructor for Silat Lincah Europe. In the constitution of Silat Lincah it was stated that the art could not be taught to non-Malay or non-Muslim. When he returned to Malaysia, his teachers said that if he wanted to learn more, that they had to take him to Maha Guru as he was the only one who could give him permission to learn. This he did. He also over the years changed the constitution of the Pertubohan (association) to allow the art to be taught to these other groups and to include Glenn and his students.
