Among the activities that was mentioned directly in the Hadith of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was about the art of swimming. The Malay people especially was known in the previous time the warrior at water, whether at the river, or in the ocean. That's why the symbol of the Dragon in the Gayong logo representing the strength in the water. In the history also written the strength of the Bani Umayyah (since the Khulafah Ar-Rasyidin), Abbasid, Fatimid, or Uthmaniyah (Ottoman) in their Navy force. As once the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said, "I saw my coming ummah like a king on the ocean" (au kamakola Raslullah saw). The prophet had foreseen that Islam will be spread all over the world through the sea.

Everything that will bring good will be considered as an A'mal. As for us, we tried to create that opportunity especially for the KK5 students to learn the swimming, the archery, the horse riding and also the martial arts. Alhamdoulliah, we had the instructors from the Navy that taught everyone from the basic, to the technique of saving someone, and also the free-fall technique from the height. And for sure, all of the members of the Naga Rantau will undergo regular swimming training as one of their requirement in the additional skill a part than the Silat Seni Gayong.
