The philosophy of Golok is a very interesting one for me. Contrary with the Parang (machete), Pedang (sword) or Sundang Lipas (double blade sword), Golok is a daily tool used anytime and brought anywhere. Compared with the "royal" weapon of Keris and Lembing, Golok is just a non-class weapon and never had been in a high-place as the war weapon. But despite of his un-glamorous appearance, Golok is the one who could be brought as close as possible to the target of enemy.
The chance of training the Pak Kiyai Golok style was indeed a new experience for us. I would like to thank first of all to my Master, Cikgu Mufti Ansari for allowing us to join the Khatam Golok ceremony and also to the organizer of Pertubuhan Seni Pencak Tualang Tiga, the AJKs, the members, and all of the team. InsyaAllah, hope that we could meet again one day in a better experience! ;)
