There is one training form in Level One and Level Two of the Silat Kuntau Tekpi syllabus. This form is known simply as the “Pelebat” (the Malaysian term for a “form”). All of the key movement patterns found in the buah are contained within the Pelebat so the student has the opportunity to master the core movement patterns without a training partner.
The Pelebat assists the student in the development of:
- Correct body mechanics and coordination
- Symmetrical mastery of key Silat Kuntau Tekpi movement patterns
- Fluidity and relaxation while in motion
- Conditioning when performed in high numbers (between 33 and 99 repetitions in one training session)
The Pelebat is being performed in this video by Cikgu Lan of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Cikgu Lan is one of the senior instructors in Pertubuhan Seni Silat Kuntau Tekpi Malaysia (PPSKTM) - the official Silat Kuntau Tekpi Association of Malaysia.
