At Master Mufti Ansari's house

Our last destination was Kuala Lumpur. Our Gayong France team will leave from KLIA in two days so we took the chance to visit some old masters in Selangor and Kuala Lumpur. Seems it is in the month of Ramadhan, not so many Masters are available that we could meet. Alhamdulillah, the gayong France team was finally arrived at Cikgu Mufti's house. Cikgu Mufti Ansari was the first master who introduced Silat Seni Gayong to France in he late 80's and beginning of 90's. 

When I came to France in 2002/2003, there was no more Silat Seni Gayong club anywhere, but the spirit of Silat Seni Gayong was still strong and ready to wake up. The destiny, alhamdulillah, make me have the chance of reviving Silat Seni Gayong back in France. The continuous effort of me and my right man Benjamin PONS, and also all of the Gayong France members,  make it possible to see how Gayong has been a tiger cub ready to grow up in France now. Our plan of coming to Malaysia has been planned for many years, but this is the first time an official training journey for us. In 2006 and 2007 I have brought students from France also, but none of them is still active in Gayong. I do hope after one month intensive training in Malaysia, Gayong France now will move forward step further with a strong team of Gurulatihs and Jurulatihs. 

For Cikgu Mufti, Kak Ji and Cikgu Wan Kancil, thank you for a warm welcome and good food. ;)

Salam Perpisahan

And then, we arrived at the moment of separation. Every encounter will absolutely finish by a separation. As their Cikgu, I finally let them go back to their place, even though it is hard see this. One month of eating, sleeping, training, travelling, joking, and even shopping together, and I do hope this entry will make all of the souvenir here in Malaysia will last forever. Insyaallah, I will wait for the second group coming to Malaysia.

Salam Perpisahan, Salam SeGayong, Salam Persaudaraan.

From Cikgu Hakim, Cikgu Anis and Aaisy Aryan with LOVE
