Kem Khidmat Komuniti dan Motivasi Berasaskan Silat '13 (KIKOS)
Final preparation before going for the camp
One of our projects of Naga Rantau is to contribute to the surround community as one the obligation as a part of the community itself. To be a Pesilat, is not only to be strong and good for oneself. A Pesilat, especially a Anak Gayong, is the one who brings good thing to others around him/her. For that purpose, all of the Anak Gayong from our Gelanggang, who had obtained their Jurulatih title (Red Belt) , they were assigned to open a Gelanggang anywhere near by the university. One Jurulatih of Red Belt will be assisted by few of Green Belt students. As a teacher here, surely I can teach them all of the techniques and give them the information about Silat Seni gayong. But I surely can't give them or teach them the art of "Teaching Silat Seni Gayong". To teach this art, it requires not only the mastery in the techniques itself, but the experiences counts a lot. As one of my master says "If you don't teach, than you will forget. If you don't practice, than you will be weak. If you don't open a Gelanggang, than you will be never understand the art".
As for the UMP staff, I were assisted by Cikgu Fahmi (Assistant Staff at KK5) and Cikgu Razhan (Teaching Engineer at UMP Gambang) during the whole camp. The ALUMNI Naga Rantau, Cikgu Haziq, Cikgu Ari, Cikgu Sab, Cikgu Mus and Cikgu Suhana also came to support this program. Our most beloved international brother, Julien Erdelyi also was here to take his Red Belt grading.

A three days camping actually cannot change thing a big deal. But it is largely enough to create a good memories and ties love among us. It was the first KIKOS, and I am sure that the second one will be more participants as the Gelanggang Angkat will be more in the future. InsyaAllah. For the Jurulatihs, keep always a good relationship and professionalism with your Gelanggang and 'Anak Buah'. Our program of Gelanggang Angkat continues, and it is my hope that our presence here in Gambang and Pekan could bring a good thing for everyone. Amin! ;)
