Silat, sometimes also called Pencak silat, panchak, or montjak, generally refers to Martial Arts styles that originate from the Malay. These people can be found spread throughout Southeastern Asia, more specifically around Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Brunei, and the Philippines. Silat isn't just one style but is used to describe anywhere on up to a hundred different styles, or what they call alirans, and schools. As with many Martial Arts styles, learning silat is not just about fighting. While learning Silat, one learns the mental or spiritual aspects of life, self-defense, the fighting techniques, and the culture of the people the art originated from. For more traditional schools, this includes having a uniform that is based off the Malaysia culture, rather than the Japanese or Chinese one that most people see in Martial Arts. In addition, the schools will have their own "dance," which is composed of movements from their particular style. It is a way to distinguish one style of silat from another.
Silat has a strong influence of learning from the environment. Many of the movements will reflect animals that you will find in nature moreso than some of the other Martial Arts. One of the most important animals to them was the tiger, being seen by the culture as a symbol of importance. Thus, one will find the movements in Silat to be explosive and aggressive bursts of attacks. In ancient times, Silat was as much a part of their lives as any other form of education and prepared young men for adulthood. Because of this, there is a strong emphasis in this art on self-defense. This emphasis is what has made Silat spread through Europe and now the United States. When watching a Silat practioner, one will notice that the artist starts at a much lower stance than most other Martial Arts. In many forms, the practioner will actually go down on one or both knees to gain the advantage. Each step will not only move the fighter but also turn the angle of their body, thus constantly changing and protecting different zones from their attacker. Silat's growing popularity has brought forward several forms within the Western world based on this system. The more known and unique examples of these emphasis the use of small knives, which is one of many weapons seen in a silat arsenal.

Popularized by the Historical Fiction movie "Swing Kids" (starring Robert Sean Leonard and Christian Bale) whom yelled "Swing Heil!" instead of "Seig Heil!" in pride of loving swing music and being the counterculture rebels of the Hitler Youth.
In Nazi Germany, there was a counterculture group who loved American Swing music (which was banned for it was not German as well as much was by African Americans or Jews), wore their hair long, opposed Nazism, and went to clubs in the middle of the night to dance to this swing music. Nazis occasionally went to check in on such clubs, which by then the band was given the cue to play German music and all that were swing dancing only seconds ago had begun stepping in a traditional German dance so they did not get in trouble. However, the outcome of the Swing Kids' lives depended on how they reacted when dealing with the fear of being reported and taken by the Nazis versus being rebels and standing for what they believed in.
PETER!" Willie yelled, watching his big brother being driven away, off to starve and be tortured in a concentration camp like their father had- "Peter!" he yelled again. He then saw his brother's umbrella in a puddle by his feet. He then picked it up, raised it above his head and chanted back to his brother with tears and pride. "SWING HEIL! SWING HEIL!!
|152.||Milwaukee Flash Mob|
The practice of gathering a large group of African-American people together in a crowded environment and simultaneously beginning to target and assault any white people in the vicinity. It is similar to a traditional flash mob in that the event is pre-planned via text message, social networking, or e-mail. Instead of breaking out into a coordinated song and dance, the people involved assault nearby white people and vandalize and loot nearby vendors.
For example, on August 4, 2011, a group of approximately 100 Africa-American teenagers launched a Milwaukee Flash Mob at the state fair grounds in West Allis, WI following an M.C. Hammer concert.

Emmeline is an elf-woman, directly descending from the Elven Queen, the great Aym'Lyne.
She is small and lithe, with a strong, slim body- yet she still has just the right amount of curves.
She has long undulating hair that cascades from her shoulders in waves; its swinging entrances mere mortals.
She is adept in the traditional South African dance, that which is practised in those clubs of young and wild beautiful people; her skill drives men wild with lust, and women wild with envy.
She is indeed remarquably sexy, in the way of the Elven Royalty of Olden Time, and doesn't realise it, which greatly becomes her.
She is a sweet person, has moments of crazed excitement- as most young elf-women do-, and gives amazing advice to those in need of it.
She is a shoulder to lean on, to cry on, as well as a person to count on in times of laughter.
One should be honoured and proud to know Emmeline- she is most assuredly the best friend one could dream of.
Boy: Who is that goddess dancing over there? She doesn't even seem to notice anyone; but we're all staring...
Girl: Of course, that's the elf-woman Emmeline. She wouldn't notice a mere mortal such as yourself, she's way too good for you. She's a 9 (over 10), didn't you know?
