Perhaps this is the last photo for our training at the Nirwana Gelanggang of Master Cikgu Kahar Redza. And this should be my last training in Malaysia. Even though it is the holy month of Ramadhan where most prefer to have a rest after a long night Terawih prayer at the mosque, certain just couldn't stop to come and to seek the knowledge from the senior masters. Since couple of months in Malaysia for my internship at UPM, I was grateful to have been training in KL and Selangor with some Gayong masters. I would like to express my gratitude to Cikgu Kahar Redza, Cikgu Jazwan, Cik Nor, Wan, Adek and other Gayong Cikgu who made the training at Nirwana cheerful. And also to Cikgu Mufti Ansari, Kak Ji, Cikgu Wan Kancil, Abg Zahar, Cikgu-Cikgu, Brothers and Sisters and all students at Panglima Hitam Gelanggang at Desa Jaya, Kepong, thank you very much for the knowledge taught and shared. Not to forget to Cikgu Radzwan Razak a.k.a Black Panther, Cikgu Zul the python, Cikgu Din and all of Skuad 170 at Kajang, merci beaucoup for the kindness and "craziness". Hehehhe.
To Dato' Adi, Cikgu Mus, Cikgu Anuar and Kak Nora at the Gayong headquater, thank you for spending your precious time to respond to my question and all the "papers". Last but not least, to Dato' Wan Fauzi who always says Ok when we want to pass by his house. Oh! Forgot to mention, sorry sorry sorry, Ustaz Zahari from Hulu Selangor and the gang, Cikgu Hamzah (young) and his shah alam team, Cikgu Hamzah (senior) and Cikgu Selamat, Cikgu Sani Morni, Cikgu Ezhar Abbas, Cikgu Tahir Bangsar, Cikgu Mat Serawak, Cikgu Sulaiman Sharif, Cikgu Samsuddin US, Cikgu Norazaman UPSi and his Reyokiwara team (Cikgu Jent, Cikgu Man, Cikgu Johnjenin heheh and others)

And to all brothers and sisters of Silat Seni Gayong, thank you thank you thank you for your support, appreciation and prayer to us Gayong France!
I am so sorry if I didn't mention your name here, but just knowing that you are all in my heart! ;) 6 months in Malaysia is not enough to know every Gayong Masters. But insyaAllah, I'll spend more time to learn and to collect as much as possible the Gayong pearls before they perish by time. Oh God, please bless us our searching for the knowledge and brotherhood..... Amin!!!! ;) I would like to ask my apologize if during our encounters any of my words or actions had hurt anyone accidentally. Or perhaps intentionally during the "self-defense" of my honor. Thank you again everyone, and pray for my success of my final exam (I got some papers!) and final year projects presentation at France from 15th until 21st of September 2010. I'll be gone for couple of weeks from now and hope to see you again at the end of September. God bless you all.
