dutch self defense
« on: January 26, 2005, 04:32:07 PM »

I heard or read somwhere that sometimes in Europe SILAT was also called Dutch Self Defense...or something to that effect...
Maybe the Dutch military adopted Silat?

Anyone else ever hear that?

Also...has anyone ever heard of a fighting style called Lucha de Canary Islands?

NO--Im not making these up...

Thanks,

I've been a lurker for a while.  Let me just give a brief intro.  I train Kenpo, Jiujitsu, Escrima etc. Hvae done some Okinawan stuff when I was young. This is a nice place.  Hello to all.

Eric,

Let me make an educated guess. The Dutch used to colonize Indonesia. I think they might have gotten some kind of Silat from Indonesia.

With respect,

The DeThours brothers are Dutch/Indonesian, they certainly have contributed to Silat moving outside Indonesia.

Yes the Dutch were heavily involved with Indonesia for several centuries, first from trade. The best book on this interwoven connection is Krakatoa by Simon Winchester, which to my surprise was both a long-running hardcover and is now a long-running, paperback best seller. (It does a person good to see actual, history books remain bestsellers in our society.)

Anyway, what a history lesson and really details the long European/Dutch/Indo connection. With inter-racial marriages and immgration, Silat has a connection with the Dutch.
