Dear all,

After much success with the multiple award winning film Inside Silat in 2009, this weekend (the 17th, 18th and 19th of April) will be another exciting weekend specially dedicated to filming our first ever docutainment program on the devastating elbow techniques of Tomoi by Kru Jak Othman, featuring Antonio Graceffo, dubbed The Monk From Brooklyn @ The Brooklyn Monk.

The Brooklyn Monk, Antonio Graceffo, is an adventure and martial arts author living in Asia. He is the host of the web TV show, "Martial Arts Odyssey" which was shot in over twenty locations in Asia, featuring countless exotic martial arts and masters. Antonio writes books and articles about martial arts, ethnic minorities, tribes, and adventure travels in Asia. He currently has foive books on including his signature book, The Monk from Brooklyn, the first book ever written by an American who studied at the Shaolin Temple. He is a frequent guest on radio and TV shows (find out more, visit his YouTube channel at or you may alternatively learn more about him and his mission by visiting his website 'Speaking Adventure' at

This film will be a special debut for the much talked about and sought after ancient elbow techniques of Muay Boran, or back here in Malaysia, we call it Tomoi Silat (or Silat Tomoi).

One of the highlight in this filming project will also include for the first time in the history of ancient Southeast Asian weaponry system is the bladed mai sok, a closely guarded, never before revealed secret weapon which resembles the wooden tonfa ---with a blade!

Post production and final product of this filming project will be sold in DVD format and possibly make way for a series in time to come (remember the Mahaguru series, folks?... Well, Jak The Blade is back! The Tiger is Loose!!!)

Be sure to stay tuned, and keep your eyes peeled for the upcoming DVD that will be out in the market real soon.

Best regards,
