Fight Masters: Silat


Fight Masters: Silat - will air on 31 August (Merdeka Day) in Malaysia! This show was filmed in HD over the course of 10 days. Will feature Joel Champ as the main character to is brought to Malaysia by his Cikgu, Cikgu Sam to continue his training in Silat Seni Gayong. 

This is an incredible glimpse in Silat Seni Gayong! I was fortunate to have traveled to Malaysia to observe the shoot. I can tell you from first hand witness, this is set to be very informative and very insightful. Joel is taught by Cikgu Jazwan Kahar, Cikgu Kahar Redza, Cikgu Kamal, Cikgu Malik and many other of Silat Seni Gayong's Silat masters in Malaysia. Joel has trained in Silat Seni Gayong for over 14 years. His journey on this TV show is incredible. The filming schedule was intense, they filmed everyday even on the one "day off." Joel was asked to do many things he has never done before, including sport fighting a SEA champion (South East Asia Games), and more traditional training and tests of faith. 

It will air in other regions of the world after the Malaysia airdate. I'll keep you posted on the other airdates when they are made known. Bravo Joel!!
