Pukul Pelaga is a Malay martial art. Initially this system is not well known due to certain reasons. Now it is not widely spread because there are martial artists from other silat styles slandering and preventing people from joining it.
Basically Pukul Pelaga means anything a fighter does to win a fight. The name gives a hint of what Pukul Pelaga has to offer. It contains various fighting styles and methods. The fact is I wrote a book titled '400 Fighting Styles in Pukul Pelaga'. This book is not meant to be published so it is not available in the market. There are other books written but most of them were stolen by practitioners from a well-known silat school in Malaysia. Among the things I wrote was on how to develop advanced techniques from the basics.
Silat in Malaysia used to rely on what their practitioners call spiritual practices. Reliance on supernatural powers led to silat schools having limited techniques. Pukul Pelaga (PP) changed that because it has no so-called spiritual practices. As a result the basic techniques in PP are meant to be developed by the individual to suit their own tastes and capabilities. This resulted in various techniques. For example most people watching PP practitioners training would probably say PP has no kicking techniques. In reality there are more than 160 kicking techniques available to PP practitioners. A copy of the book I wrote and illustrated had been stolen. It is only within the last 10 years many silat schools began increasing the number of techniques in their syllabus.
