Majlis Melangir Pedang Lian Padukan

Salam semua,

Pada tarikh 11 December 2010 bersamaan dengan 5 Muharam telah berlangsung satu Majlis Adat Melangir Pedang Lian Padukan bersama Y.M. Ayahanda Haji Mohammed Hasyim Bin haji Salleh - Guru Utama / Presiden  Lian Padukan Malaysia .

Adat Melangir ini telah dijadikan acara rasmi Persatuan Seni Silat Lian Padukan sejak tahun 2007. Ini merupakan tahun ke-3. Sebelum ini majlis melangir pedang cuma dilakukan secara tertutup.



Ini di sebabkan pada tahun 2007, pedang yang di tempah khas tersebut telah di hadiahkan oleh 5 orang ahli Lian Padukan yang khatam pada waktu itu kepada Y.M. Ayahanda Guru Utama. Buat pertama kali juga idea untuk memberikan suatu hadiah yang istimewa  dan luarbiasa kepada Guru Utama sempena Majlis Khatam Istiadat mereka berlima.



Majlis Khatam pada 2007 itu juga istimewa kerana telah di hadiri oleh anakanda kepada Sultan Johor (Almarhum Sultan Iskandar ) Y.A.M. Tunku Masera. Pedang tersebut kemudiannya telah di restui  dan simbolinya pedang itu diserahkan sendiri oleh Y.A.M.Tunku Masera kepada Y.M. Ayahanda  Haji Mohammed Hasyim. Pedang itu kemudiannya telah di sumbangkan kembali oleh Y.M. Ayahanda kepada persatuan untuk dijadikan Pedang Adat-Istiadat Lian Padukan.

Pedang Adat-Istiadat Lian Padukan itu kemudiannya di keluarkan dan digunakan untuk upacara-upacara rasmi Lian Padukan. Antaranya majlis khatam Istiadat, majlis grading, melangir pedang dan sebagainya. Upacara Adat Melangir pedang ini selalunya di jalankan setiap tahun dalam bulan Muharam selalunya antara 1 - 10 Muharam.

Pada majlis ini selain pedang adat-Istiadat Lian Padukan yang di langir, senjata-senjata lain juga di langirkan. Sebahagian besarnya adalah dari koleksi Y.M. Ayahanda sendiri, cikgu-cikgu khatam dan ahli-ahli. Antaranya seperti pedang, tombak, tekpi, kerambit, keris, dan parang.

Majlis kali ni tidak ramai yang dapat hadir oleh cikgu dan ahli kerana ada perubahaan yang mendadak dalam program Lian Padukan. Sepatutnya tarikh 11 Dec 2010, sebahagian dari kami akan terlibat dengan Festival Silat tetapi perubahan 'last minute' oleh pengajur, menangguhkan program tersebut kepada tahun hadapan. Oleh itu kami memohon maaf atas perubahaan tarikh Melangir Pedang yang di cadangkan pada 20 Dec 2010.

Majlis bermula selepas magrib, dengan bacaan yassin dan tahlil untuk arwah guru-guru. Selepas berjemaah sembahyang Isyak, majlis melangir dimulakan. Untuk makluman, majlis melangir ini di ertikan juga dengan maksud mencuci. Iaitu kita membersihkan senjata-senjata yang kita ada. Majlis berlangsung di rumah adat di Johor Bahru.

MAJLIS GRADING KEBANGSAAN LIAN PADUKAN 2010



Alhamdulillah Syukur saya kehadrat Allah s.w.t kerana  dengan izin dan rahmatNya dapat lah kami ( LianPadukan Martial Arts Academy ) menganjurkan buat pertama kalinya, MAJLIS GRADING KEBANGSAAN LIAN PADUKAN 2010. Sebelum ini grading di buat di negeri masing2.


Majlis yang dirasmikan oleh YM Ayahanda Haji Mohammed Hasyim Bin Haji Salleh selaku Yang Di Pertua Persatuan Seni Silat Lian Padukan Malaysia.


Dalam kata lain kami berjaya mencipta sejarah untuk Lian Padukan. Kami terdiri dari Cikgu Din Misai, Cikgu Boy, Cikgu Azmi Dato, Cikgu Wana, Cik Ayeen, Cikgu Aimi, Cikgu Azhar, Cikgu Faizal, Cikgu Tok Pin, Cikgu Hasimpul, Cikgu Ipman, Cikgu Wan Kecik, Cikgu Wan Botak, Cikgu Jeffri, Cikgu Arip dan saya sendiri.Banyak lagi yang kami perlu perbaiki kelemahan2 dalam menganjurkan Majlis seperti ini. Yang penting kita telah buat yang terbaik dan berjaya melakukannya. InsyaAllah tahun hadapan kita akan buat yang lebih baik lagi. Yang harus kita utamakan ialah LIAN PADUKAN.


For the First Time  - We managed to gather ALL cikgu2 from states of Selangor, KL, Penang,
                                Terengganu, Johor, Melaka, Pahang.
For the First Time - We managed to gather ALL students from the states mentioned above.
For the First Time - We managed to register MORE THAN 100 students to participate in this Grading...
For the First Time - We managed to organise such a big event TOGETHER.
                                  ( kita pukul habis semua rekod ). YES, TOGETHER WE CAN DO IT.......
                                    WE DO IT EVEN BETTER........YESSSS

For me the atmosphere that day was wonderful and fantastic. The proudest moment was when I stand on the stage and looked at all the students in black uniform blending together with the 'Khatam' cikgu-cikgu' in white.
I said to myself  " In THE END and after all these years that we have went through thick and thin,  LIAN PADUKAN has become and emerged as STRONGER and UNITED.
WE DID IT LIAN PADUKAN WAY......


InsyaAllah, pada masa akan datang kami akan perbaiki kelemahan yang terdapat dalam majlis ini dan menjadikan ia lebib baik lagi. Video di bawah adalah peserta2 Jurus sahaja, tak termasuk peserta2 Lian. Suara mereka buat jurus ini memang best. Budak perempuan kecil di depan adalah dari Gelanggang USJ2/Mydin Cikgu Raziman. Beliau telah dipilih sebulat suara sebagai Pesilat Harapan 2010.

Akhir kata, Terimakasih kepada YM Ayahanda Haji Mohammed Hasyim atas nasihat dan bimbingan beliau kepada  kami semua. Juga terimakasih kepada cikgu-cikgu yang hadir, ahli-ahli senior, peserta-peserta dan rakan2 semua atas sokongan dan kerjasama yang telah anda semua berikan.

Demo - 3rd Malaysian All Martial Arts Showcase

30 th Oct 2010 at Panggung Bandara, Kuala Lumpur.

Much attention needs to be look into Lian Padukan demo squad. We could do better than that. Anyway, it is always a good experience and exposure for me and also for my fellow friends and students.
The seats are full, but the organizer failed to limit and control the presentation of the team performing their arts. . .Overall, Congratulation and thank you to Cik Wati and Stealth organization for inviting us.

Life Begins at ......in Lian Padukan

Salam,

Last friday I have reach the age where they say that " Life Begins At this age....". Alhamdulillah

This week has been an interesting week for me when I met 3 type of people who wanted to learn Lian Padukan. Again 2 of them were the results from the SriKandi Lian Padukan story published in the Seni Beladiri Magazine by Mr Azlan Ghanie. If you read the story, Srikandi Lian Padukan, you will noticed that Mr Azlan did not write specifically on  Buah Pukul nor on Lian Padukan but more on the Srikandi. As a result Cikgu Ayeen recieved calls from people wanted to learn and know more on buah pukul and Lian Padukan and most of them are males. Alhamdulillah, we also saw the trend of the old students who left LP before especially in Johor came back to continue learning Lian Padukan. YDp berjaya menghidupkan dan mengembangkan nama Srikandi Lian Padaukan.

The first guy who came was from the security company. When he came and appeared before me last wednesday, I was quite surprise..hahaha. With his brutal first impression looks,  big size, muscular ( gym guy ) and dark brown complexion with one inch haircut :-), he is not the average guy who wanted to learn martial arts. I am able to talk and explain to him on Lian Padukan, principles and explain how I conduct our training. This guy was so close talking to me that if he jumps on me, I 'll will just have bite his nose off....hehe - I have to be on the alert side. In the end, he  joined in the excersice and willingly accepted to be 'titik", "perisai" and "tumbuk". I like him.

The second guy called me on last Tuesday to meet me in class,  wednesday. Then he cancelled it. He called me wednesday morning at 730 to meet at 11am. That's fine, The he called back at 10, and said that he has reached the studio. Again, I have to be cautious, why so sudden and keep changing of time appoitmement, one too many....:-) I met him and he told me that he wanted to join since last year but was too busy with his work. This year the government has less money and slashed many events and projects so he got time to learn. He did try ( slowly ) on me to see how Lian moves and intercept a punch. Again I use the alif, ba , ta concept plus. Alhamdulillah he accepted my explaination and concept of Lian Padukan. He further offer to help in promoting Lp in his work. I saw his sincerity in helping LP. I like him too.

The third guy, 24 from  Maahad Tahfiz, alor setar. He sms, call and call again asking about Lian padukan and wanted to learn and know more about Lp. We sms and talked by the phone like we have known each other before. So yesterday I came to Penang to meet him and to prepare my students for the national grading next months. This guy came all the way from alor setar by bus ( 3 buses - Maahad to alor setar town, alor setar to butterwoth, butterworth to bertam ). He reached bertam around 330 pm.  And I drove all the way from KL to see him, all for the passion of Lian Padukan. I have to come early because he cannot attend my class at night. First, the last bus back to olor setar is 845pm and also because he has a class on Sunday. We have luch together and around 4 pm we started our Q&A (muzakarah) on buah pukul Lian Padukan.

He was so eager to learn Lian Padukan. We did some application and exchanged some moves, alhamdulillah he accepted it with an heart. He can moved his hand well and brave enough to endure the "titik, "perisai, ", "tumbuk" element. After our "muzakarah" he perform "Emas 10" to me.  I managed to teach him all 4 Jurus until 730 pm. I told him if you can learned to speak Arabic well and memorized ALL 30 chapters of the Al-Quran, then these 4 Jurus is peanuts. He is going to Mesir next August to pursue his degree in studying Al-Quran.He is sincere and dedicated to learn Lian Padukan. My first tahfiz student, alhamdulillah. I thank Allah for this meeting with Firdaus.

Lastly, I thank to Allah for his "Rahmat" blessing to me, my parents, family and Lian Padukan family. Also give me the opportunity  in meeting such a great man like my ayahanda Lian Padukan Hj Mohammed Hasyim Bin Hj Salleh, friends of LIAN PADUKAN and thus meeting wonderfull people along the way.

I hope "Roda terus berputar ke atas" dan"terus berputar ke atas".

Demonstration at MidVAlley Shopping Mall






The demonstration was held last Sunday, 26 September at Mid Valley Mega Mall with the conjunction of  The Expatriate Week. We were invited by a friend, Cikgu Mazlin from Marvellous Martial Art, through our KL/Selangor Chairman, Cikgu Din Misai. A total of more than 10 students and 4 cikgu participated in the demonstration from various gelanggang ( Gombak, Kelana Jaya, Kapar, Selayang and USJ ). We have prepared all the fliers and banner for display that day. We have the support, guidance and blessing of our YDP Haji Muhammed Hasyim Bin Haji Salleh. We were the 3rd team to display our silat after the Akido team.  Most of the audience that came to watch  were  shoppers and people from the exhibiting booths next door. The one thing that made me smile that morning was to see Cikgu Din complaining me that the student s and even the cikgu ( Guru ) were not up and ready to prepare themselves. All of them ( especially the kids ) and even the audience was mesmerized  by the first performer, the “Belly Dancers “….well what can I say.

For your information there were no preparation or training prior to this event or any such demo for us in Lian Padukan. All these years, we just do what we are trained for and just purely skill…hahaha. After all, it is “buah pukul” or in other words ‘the art of bashing’. If our partner  is still standing then you have beat  him down. Simple as that !

Lian Padukan demo trip has always been a family affair with our wives and kids, girl friends, and friends joining in to support each other. We see father or son or both performing the demo. Just the present of your loves ones beside you and supporting you are the best. As for me, I want to give the chance to my kids especially, my students and others  ( both the boys are in Lian ) to gain as much experience in demonstration  and  thus develop his confidence, composure and skill in front of large audience.

In my early days of  Lian Padukan, together with Cikgu Azhar, Cikgu Aimi, Cikgu Raziman and Cikgu Wana and “Demo Expert” Cikgu Din Misai we performed demonstration in weddings, family days, Schools, dinner event in university, Tabung Haji and many others. Our trade-mark will be our bandana ( head cover ), a gift token by Cikgu Din. I can still remember those happy and nervous  moments before a show.


Picture above was taken in 2007 ( notice the bandana ).

One thing that we ( cikgu-cikgu ) noticed and discussed  was that, we must do something about our demonstration performance, especially in terms of a proper demo syllabus and having to choose a quality invitations.  Besides having fun in doing what we love and giving exposure to the students, we also want to have an impact to the audience. How does the demo effect the audience? Will it make Lian Padukan popular? Is the demo worth it? These questions need to be discuss carefully.  At the end of the day, we want people to know and join this offensive art of fighting,  Lian Padukan. It is time to sit down and discuss what are the best ways to present our Lian. We know how to fight and beat the hell out of our partner but then the audience might not understand it. They might not also see our technique clearly since our hands and leg move swiftly and rapidly.

 We need to change also because our gelanggang are growing all over Malaysia, our students are growing, demand to open up new gelanggang  and our new “khatam” ( graduated ) students are increasing from time to time. And so Lian Padukan DEMONSTRATION in future is inevitable, whether we like it or not.

Lastly, on behalf of the academy, I would like to thank our  Yang DiPertua Haji Mohammed Hasyim Bin Hj Salleh that is always guide and support us ( KL/Selangor Lian Padukan ) in our effort to promote the art of Lian Padukan. Also thank to our chairman in KL/Selangor, Cikgu Din Misai @ Pakar Demo, Cikgu Faizal for his contribution with the bunting, Cikgu Wana Srikandi, Cikgu Hasimpul the ‘cameraman’ and cikgu Raziman @ chef. Not forgetting all those that came that day for your support and commitment to Lian Padukan.

New Poetry from the Grandmaster Haji Mohammed Hasyim.

TEKPI BUKAN SEBARANG TEKPI,
TEKPI LP TEMBAGA KEBANYAKKAN NYA,
BERANI BUKAN SEBARANG BERANI,
KECUALI KENA DENGAN CARANYA.

LEBAH BUKAN SEBARANG LEBAH,
LEBAH SABAH BANYAK KHASIATNYA,
SEMBAH BUKAN SEBARANG SEMBAH
SEMBAH BA’AIAH DENGAN TAATNYA.

DURIAN BUKAN SEBARANG DURIAN,
DURIANSELATAN ENAK RASANYA,
LIAN BUKAN SEBARANG LIAN,
LIAN PADUKAN BANYAK RAHSIANYA.

LEPAT DI ALAS SI DAUN PALAS,
BUAT JAMUAN DI PAGI RAYA,
APA YANG DIBUAT MESTILAH IKHLAS,
BARULAH HATI MENJADI CERIA.

KING OF BUAH PUKOL - Ayahanda Haji Hasyim Haji Salleh

SALAM,

YEARS OF STORIES TOLD AND EVENTS HAPPENED TO AYAHANDA HAJI HASYIM AND LIAN PADUKAN PROMTED ME TO WRITE AND SHARE MY OPINION ABOUT THE NEW FOUNDER OF LIAN PADUKAN.I HOPE TO SHARE THE VAST EXPERIENCE OF MY GRANDMASTER TO LIAN, SILAT, KNOWLEDGE, SKILL AND THE LOVE AND RESPECT TO ALL OF HIS MASTERS / GURUS, SO THAT YOU COULD GAIN AND LEARN SOMETHING GOOD BACK TO YOU.


INTRODUCTION
THIS IS THE STORY OF THE "KING OF BUAH PUKOL" OR "RAJA PUKOL" AND THE NEW FOUNDER OF LIAN PADUKAN – YANG DI PERTUA HAJI MOHAMED HASYIM BIN HAJI SALLEH. 

AYAHANDA HAJI HASHIM WAS THE 'PEWARIS NUKIL' OR THE SCROLL HOLDER AFTER IT WAS PASSED TO HIM IN 1995. ONLY THE SELECTED OR THE CHOSEN ONE IS SELECTED. ( THE NUKIL IS SHOWN AT OUR ACADEMY IN GOMBAK, MALAYSIA ).LIAN PADUKAN IS MEANT FOR HAJI HASYIM FROM THE BEGINNING.HE GOT THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS - ARWAH PAK MAT KEDIDI AND ARWAH RAZAK YAHUDI. 

THE FIRST TIME LIAN PADUKAN LEFT WITHOUT NOBODY TO BE INCHARGE.
ON THE 8TH JAN 1988, FRIDAY 11AM,  BOTH ARWAH PAK MAT AND ARWAH RAZAK LEFT LIAN PADUKAN AFTER A BIG DISAGREEMENT ERUPTED. AT THAT TIME SADAR MOHD WAS PRESENT WITNESSING THE EVENT THAT OCCURED IN FRONT OF PAK MAT' HOUSE.THIS WAS THE FIRST TIME ARWAH PAK MAT KEDIDI LEFT LIAN PADUKAN.BOTH WENT ON SEPARATE WAYS. ARWAH RAZAK WARNED THAT NO ONE WILL USE THE NAME, AND NO ONE WAS BRAVE ENOUGH TO CHALLENGED THAT.  IT WAS LATER IN 1995 ( SEE BELOW STORY THAT PAK MAT INSTRUCTED HAJI HASYIM TO TAKE ON THE NAME.....)

THE SECOND TIME, PAK MAT LEFT LIAN PADUKAN 
THE ‘SURAT PUAKA’DATED IN NOVEMBER 2008 ( THE LETTER - WILL BE TOLD IN FUTURE POSTING)  WAS A BLESSSING IN DISGUISE, THUS OFFICIALLY CLAIMED AYAHANDA HAJI HASYIM AS THE RIGHTFULLY OWNER AND THE NEW FOUNDER OF LIAN PADUKAN.

DURING THE EARLLY DAYS OF LIAN PADUKAN , IT WAS ARWAH RAZAK SHARIFF OR RAZAK ‘YAHUDI’ THAT PUSHED AND MADE FAMOUS THE NAME AND ART OF LIAN PADUKAN ABOVE THE REST OF BUAH PUKOL. ARWAH PAK MAT AND RAZAK WERE THEMSELVES A BUAH PUKOL MASTERS ( RAZAK WAS PAK MAT SON-IN LAW ). THEY FURTHER DEVELOP AND IMPROVED THE TECHNIQUE FROM THE ORIGIN OF BUAH PUKOL. BOTH OF THEM CLAIM THE RIGHT FOR THE NAME, LIAN PADUKAN.

PUKOL IN THIS TERM IS SIMPLY KNOWN AS “BASHING” IN ENGLISH. IN SIMPLE WORDS, IT TEACHES YOU TO FIGHT. AS AYAHANDA SAID " WE TEACH YOU NOT TO FIGHT BUT IF YOU WANT TO FIGHT, YOU HAVE THE KNOWLEDGE AND SKILL TO FIGHT".

LIAN PADUKAN IS KNOWN TO BE THE BEST OFFENSIVE FORM OF ART.

FROM 1995 UNTIL TODAY, IT IS HAJI HASYIM THEN SINGLE HANDEDLY ORCHESTRATED LIAN PADUKAN TO A NEW HEIGHTS. HE HAS FURTHER EXPAND LIAN PADUKAN, PUTTING HIS SILAT AND BUAH PUKOL EXPERIENCE INTO THE ART AND CREATED NEW FORM OF LIAN. THE HIGEST LEVEL IN THE SYLLIBUS OF LIAN PADUKAN WAS ‘ THE 100 STEPS OF SINGKIR‘ OR FAMOUSLY KNOW AS ‘ LIAN SINGKIR TAPAK 100.’

LIAN PADUKAN HAVE GREW SINCE THEN WITH THE SET-UP OF LIAN PADUKAN MARTIAL ARTS ACADEMY IN GOMBAK, KUALA LUMPUR IN 2007. NEW ‘KHATAM’ GURUS ARE PRODUCED EVERY 2 YEARS AND MORE NEW ‘GELANGGANG’ ARE BEING SET-UP THROUGHTOUT THE STATE IN MALAYSIA.

THE STORY GOES…………..
HAJI MOHAMMED HASYIM BIN HAJI SALLEH WAS BORN IN MELAKA ON THE 18TH SEPTEMBER 1962, BATU 16 ¼, KAMPUNG SOLOK DUKU, MASJID TANAH, MELAKA.DURING HIS CHILDHOOD, HE LEARNED SILAT PULUT WITH HIS UNCLE CALLED TOK ALANG JALIL. LATER ON, HE PURSUED TO STUDY “PONDOK” UNDER HIS GURU TOK ARIF.

AT THE AGE OF 8, HE WAS EXPOSED TO SILAT SENDENG BUAH MELAKA PUKULAN KAEDAH WITH CIKGU HJ.KASSIM BIN MOHD.NOH OR HJ KASSIM MAT NYOK IN MELAKA.

THROUGHOUT THE YEARS OF 1975-1976, HAJI HASYIM LEARNED SILAT KALIMAH SAKTI WITH TWO(2) FAMOUS GURUS, ARWAH GURU AHMAD BIN KAHAR AT KAMPUNG KASTAM AND GURU HAJI AZIZ OSMAN ( BETTER KNOWN AS PAK AZIZ TELEKOM ) AT KAMPUNG BENDAHARA, JOHOR.

IN THE YEAR 1977 TO 1980 THROUGH HIS FATHER, HAJI SALLEH’S FRIEND EXPOSED HJ. HASYIM WITH TAEKWONDO AND FEW OTHERS CHINESE MARTIAL ARTS MASTERS IN JOHOR. LATER ON, HE LEARNED SILAT KUNING-KUNINGAN WITH ARWAH GURU HJ. HUSIN IN PLENTONG.

DURING THE YEAR 1978-1979 ALSO, HJ.HASYIM LEARNED SILAT CIMANDE WITH ARWAH GURU WAK SARIPAN AND SILAT MEMBUJUR LALU MELINTANG PATAH ( SMLMP ) WITH ARWAH GURU YUSOF BIN OSMAN @ ATAN BIN OSMAN ( BETTER KNOWN AS ATAN SEMBILANG OR ATAN BOMOH ). "SEMBILANG" BECAUSE OF HIS ABILITY TO CATCH THE POISONOUS “SEMBILANG” FISH WITH HIS BARE HANDS.

THE SILAT MEMBUJUR LALU MELINTANG PATAH ORIGIN WAS FROM MELAKA AND THE FOUNDER IS CALLED GURU DOLLAH SENDO. THE SILAT WAS A COMBINATION OF SILAT SENDENG, SILAT SUNTING AND SILAT PULUT.
EVEN THOUGH THE PERIOD OF LEARNING WITH PAK ATAN SEMBILANG WAS ONLY FOR 3 MONTHS AND 10 DAYS ( 100 DAYS ) BUT THE DISCIPLE MUST COME TO SEE THE GURU WITHOUT FAIL EVERY DAY FOR 100 DAYS. IF FOR WHATEVER REASON THE DISCIPLE FAILS TO APPEAR BEFORE HIM THEN THE CYCLES WILL START ALL OVER AGAIN.

HAJI HASYIM FATHER’S LINEAGE IS FROM AL-MASYHUR, YAMAN AND HIS MOTHER IS FROM THE PAGAR RUYUNG SULTANATE, INDONESIA.

HAJI HASYIM’S FATHER, HJ.SALLEH AT THAT TIME WAS A PROMINENT BUSINESSMAN, A WELL-KNOWN FIGURE IN POLITICS AND THE OWNER OF A BIG BUS TRANSPORT COMPANY PLOUGING THE ROUTE FROM PASIR GUDANG TO KOTA TINGGI ETC. WHEN HE SAW THAT HIS SON’S PASSION IN LEARNING SILAT AND FIGHTING, HE THEN INTRODUCED PAK MAT SINGA TO HIM.

SYED AHMAD BIN SYED HUSSIN AL-IDRUS OR FAMOUSLY KNOWN AS PAK MAT SINGA OR 'MAT PENDEK' IS A RELATIVE TO HIS FATHER’S SIDE. ‘SINGA’ MEANS LION IN ENGLISH. IF PEOPLE CALLED HIM A LION, YOU CAN IMAGINE FOR YOURSELVES WHAT KIND OF A PERSON IS PAK MAT SINGA....PAK MAT SINGA HIMSELF LEARNED FROM ARWAH PAK MAT KEDIDI, ARWAH RAZAK YAHUDI AND PAK MAT BELANTIK.

IT DID NOT TAKE LONG FOR PAK MAT SINGA TO CHALLENGE HAJI HASYIM FOR A FIGHT. OF ALL THE PLACES THAT HE CAN CHOOSE, HE CHOSE TO FIGHT HAJI HASYIM IN HIS FATHER’S BUS. IN THE END, OF COURSE, THE LION WON. HAJI HASYIM SOMEWHAT CONFUSED THAT HE WAS NOT ABLE TO DEFEAT PAK MAT SINGA. HAJI HASYIM LIKED WHAT HE SAW AND EXPERIENCED AND WANTED TO LEARN FROM PAK MAT SINGA. HAJI HASYIM WAS A FAST LEARNER, HE MANAGED TO FINISH LIAN 1 UNTIL LIAN 4 JUST IN ONE DAY.

THIS MADE PAK MAT SINGA BROUGHT HAJI HASYIM TO MEET HIS GURU ARWAH MOHAMAD BIN CHIK OR KNOW AS PAK MAT KEDIDI. PAK MAT KEDIDI LATER TOLD HAJI HASYIM TO LEARN FROM GURU ARWAH ABDUL RAZAK SHARIF OR RAZAK “YAHUDI” AT NO.47 JALAN SERAMPANG AT TAMAN PELANGI, JOHOR.RAZAK WAS SO BRUTAL AND WITHOUT SYMPATHY WHEN HE TEACHED AND WHEN HE FOUGHT, THAT HE IS CALLED "YAHUDI".

THIS IS WHEN THE JOURNEY OF LIAN PADUKAN STARTS.

ARWAH PAK MAT KEDIDI AT THAT TIME WAS A SERGEANT MAJOR WITH THE SPECIAL BRANCH POLICE DIVISIONS AND STAYED AT THE POLICE BARRACK IN JALAN PAHLAWAN YAHYA AWAL ( NOW DEVELOPED INTO SAUJANA CONDOMINIUM ). LATER ON, ARWAH PAK MAT MOVED TO A HOUSE IN TAMAN SKUDAI, JOHOR.IN THE LATER YEARS, ARWAH PAK MAT LEFT LIAN PADUKAN TWICE TO DEVELOP ANOTHER SILAT.

FROM 1982-1987, IT WAS ARWAH RAZAK YAHUDI THAT TAUGHT, DRILLED AND GUIDED HAJI HASYIM IN BUAH PUKUL. HE GAVE EVERYTHING TO HAJI HASYIM; HIS SKILLED, HIS TRICKS, HIS MADNESS, HIS FIERCENESS, HIS BRUTALITY, HIS CRUELITY, HIS HIGH LEVEL OF ALERTNESS AND AWARENESS, HIS POWER AND HIS KINDNESS. AYAHANDA HAJI HASYIM ALYWAYS REMEMBERED RAZAK WORDS CLEARLY ' NO MERCY.....'.

ARWAH RAZAK WAS RESPECTED BY MANY OF GURU-GURU TUA BUAH PUKOL AT THAT TIME. EVERYWHERE ARWAH RAZAK WENT, HAJI HASYIM WILL FOLLOWED HIM. HE TREATED HAJI HASYIM AS HIS BROTHER. THE RELATIONSHIP WENT ON UNTIL HAJI HASYIM GOT MARRIED IN 1987 WITH HAJJAH FIFI.

HAJI HASYIM WAS SO CLOSED WITH ARWAH RAZAK THAT HE BROUGHT HAJI HASYIM EVERYWHERE HE WENT, ESPECIALLY TO TEST HIS SKILLS OR IN A SIMPLE TERM, TO FIGHT.

READERS MUST KNOW THAT, ARWAH RAZAK WAS A GREAT BUAH PUKOL AND LIAN PADUKAN GRANDMASTER AT THAT TIME. HAJI HASHIM WAS GROOMED BY ARWAH RAZAK WITH LIAN PADUKAN AND THE ART OF FIGHTING ( THEORETICALL AND PRACTICALLY ).

ARWAH RAZAK THEN TOLD HAJI HASYIM TO DO WHAT HE DID ; THAT WAS TO MEET AND LEARN FROM HIS MANY MASTERS OF BUAH PUKOL ‘GURUS’.

ARWAH RAZAK WANTED HIM TO SEE BUAH PUKOL IN DEPTH, TO LEARN AND OBSERVED THE OTHERS STYLE OF BUAH PUKOL AND FURTHER IMPROVED HIS SKILLS. MOST IMPORTANTLY, ARWAH RAZAK WANTED HAJI HASYIM TO GET THE BLESSING FROM THE OTHER MASTERS OF BUAH PUKOL. YEARS WENT BY; HAJI HASYIM GOT MORE THAN WHAT HE EXPECTED. THE TIME SPENT  WITH THE OLD MASTERS OF BUAH PUKOL REALLY PAID OFF.

PAK MAT SAMURAI WAS THE FOUNDER OF BUAH PUKOL SENJATA LAPAN AND HAJI HASYIM LEARNED FROM HIM IN MERSING DIRECTLY.PAK MAT SAMURAI HIMSELF LEARNED FROM SEVEN OF CHU AMAN'S ( PEWARIS NUKIL BEFORE PAK MAT )BEST STUDENTS.

 HAJI HASYIM ALSO LEARNED FROM GURU PAK ANDAK WAHAB WHO STAYED IN JALAN KETITIR, LARKIN, JOHOR; WITH HIS BROTHER’S DATUK HAJI AHMAD BIN AWANG WHO WAS THE MUFTI FOR THE STATE OF JOHOR AT THAT TIME. THE LATER WAS ALSO IN BUAH PUKOL.

FOR READERS INFORMATION, DATUK HAJI AHMAD BIN AWANG WAS THE ONE WHO GAVE THE NAME ‘PADUKAN’ TO ARWAH PAK MAT KEDIDI AND ARWAH RAZAK. PADUKAN MEANS COMBINED, ALL THE SILAT AND MARTIAL ARTS THAT PAK MAT KEDIDI HAD LEARNED. INITIALLY PAK MAT WANTED TO NAME IT LIAN KACUK. RAZAK DID NOT LIKE IT AND THUS BOTH OF THEM MET THE MUFTI. RAZAK WAS THE SON IN-LAW OF PAK MAT KEDIDI. THAT WAS WHY ARWAH RAZAK ALSO CLAIMED THAT THE NAME PADUKAN WAS HIS. HAJI HASYIM ALSO LEARNED USULUDIN WITH DATUK HAJI AHMAD BIN AWANG.

PADUKAN – 
PADA ALLAH DISERAHKAN UNTUK KESELAMATAN ANDA
HAJI HASYIMN ALSO LEARNED FROM GURU PAK ATAN AIR BATU AT THE MALAY CLUB HOUSE IN KLUANG, JOHOR. YES IT IS TRUE THAT MOST OF PAK ATAN AIR BATU GENERATION NEVER KNEW HAJI HASYIM WELL. THIS WAS BECAUSE; HAJI HASYIM VISITED PAK TAN WHEN THE OTHERS WERE NOT THERE. HE WILL COME IN ODD HOURS JUST TO LEARN FROM GURU PAK ATAN ( BOTH LIAN AND USULUDIN )PERSONALLY.

AYAHANDA HAJI HASYIM IS ALWAYS SPECIAL TO THE MASTERS THAT HE MET AND LEARNED.

ARWAH GURU PAK TALIB NIK WHO LIVES IN JALAN PUNGGOK, LARKIN JAYA, JOHOR; WAS INTRODUCED BY YAHYA ENDAU. HAJI HASYIM FINISHED LIAN 1 TO LIAN 9 WITH ARWAH PAK TALIB. HAJI HASYIM WAS ALSO CLOSE TO ARWAH’S DAUGTER AISYAH AND HIS HUSBAND ZUL. COINCIDENTLY ZUL IS ALSO RELATED WITH HAJAH FIFI. SADLY ARWAH PAK TALIB NIK DIED IN A CAR ACCIDENT.

HAJI HASYIM LEARNED THE TECHNIQUE OF ’POTONG LIMAU’ AND ALSO INHERITED PAK TALIB NIK’S ‘POTONG LIMAU’ KNIFE. BESIDES ARWAH PAK TALIB, HAJI HASYIM ALSO LEARNED THE ART OF ‘POTONG LIMAU’ FROM ARWAH PAK MAT KEDIDI AND GURU TUA PAK RAJA ALI. ALL THE THREE GURUS PRESENTED HAJI HASYIM WITH THEIR SPECIAL AND ANCIENT ‘POTONG LIMAU’ KNIFES.

IN 1985, IT WAS WITH GURU PAK RAJA ALI THE FAMOUS GAYANG LIMA GRANDMASTER FROM BATU PAHAT, JOHOR. DURING THAT PERIOD, PAK RAJA WORKED AS A POSTMASTER. TOGETHER WITH HAJI HASYIM BATCH WAS THE HEADMASTER AT THE BATU PAHAT HIGH SCHOOL, ARWAH CIKGU DOLLAH BIN JAIP AND BATU PAHAT POSTMASTER MR.FAIZAL. GURU PAK RAJA ALI SPECIALLY BROUGHT THEM ALL TO A GOLF CLUB FIELD NEAR BATU PAHAT FOR THEIR INITIATION ( POTONG LIMAU AND MANDI DI TALI AIR ).

IT WAS WITH GURU PAK RAJA ALI THAT HAJI HASYIM FELL IN LOVE THAT HE FURTHER PURSUED HIS STUDIES BOTH IN SILAT AND SPIRITUALLY. HAJI HASYIM DESCRIBED PAK RAJA AS A PIOUS MAN AND HAS THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF SINCERITY TO HIM.

LATER IN 1985-1987, HAJI HASYIM LEARNED WITH GURU PAK MAJID KLINIK AT JALAN BUDIMAN, KAMPUNG MELAYU, JOHOR. PAK MAJID WAS THE SECURITY GUARD POSTED AT SEKOLAH CONVENT JOHOR BAHRU ( SCHOOL ). 

ARWAH RAZAK ALWAYS CONDUCT HIS CLASS AT HIS HOUSE ON WEDNESDAY. ARWAH RAZAK INSTRUCTED ALL HIS STUDENT TO WEAR WHITE. THAT IS WHY, ALL THE KHATAM ( GRADUATED ) GURUS IN LIAN PADUKAN WILL WEAR WHITE. TO CHERRISH THE SWEET MEMORIES WITH ARWAH RAZAK, HAJI HASYIM ALSO CONDUCT HIS CLASS EVERY WEDNESDAY TILL TODAY AT HIS HOUSE IN JOHOR JAYA, JOHOR BAHRU.

THE ULTIMATE FINNALY CAME IN 1987 WHEN HAJI HASYIM ‘KHATAM’ OR GRADUATED IN LIAN PADUKAN WITH ARWAH PAK MAT KEDIDI. TOGETHER WITH HIM WERE 5 OTHER MEMBERS ; MASTAM ( FROM TANJUNG RESANG, PENYABUNG ), OMAR BANK UMBC (FROM SINGAPORE ), HJ. YUSUF IDRUS (LAWYER IDRIS BROTHER )( FROM TAMAN SRI AMAR ) AND PAK MAT SINGA ( AS MENTIONED ABOVE ).

THE EVENT OF HAJI HASYIM ‘KHATAM’ WITH ARWAH PAK MAT KEDIDI WAS VIVIDLY TOLD, CONFIRMED AND REMINDED BACK BY PAK MAT SINGA INFRONT OF ARWAH PAK MAT KEDIDI HIMSELF AT HIS HOUSE. THOSE PRESENT WERE ME, HAJI HASYIM, AZMI DATO’, AND ABANG K FROM ENDAU ON THE 1ST NOV 2008. THAT WAS OUR LAST VISIT TO ARWAH PAK MAT TO ENDAU. NO DOUBT ARWAH REMEMBERED AND TOLD BACK THE EVENT CLEARLY, AS SOME INDIVIDUAL CLAIMED OTHERWISE.

HAJI HASYIM GOT MARRIED WITH HAJAH FIFI IN 1987 AND WAS THEN APPOINTED AS THE MANAGING DIRECTOR ( AT A YOUNG AGE OF 25 ) FOR HIS FATHER’S PASIR GUDANG TRANSPORT BUS BUSINESS. AT THAT TIME THEY HAD MORE THAN 85 BUSES AND 200 EMPLOYEES.

IN 1995, WITH THE MERGER OF ALL BUS COMPANIES IN JOHOR RESULTED HAJI HASHIM SOLD HIS BUS COMPANY TO A BIGGER COMPANY. THE DEAL WAS THE BEST THAT HAPPENED TO HAJI HASYIM AND THEY SAID THE REST WAS HISTORY.

TIME TRAVEL SO FAST THAT, IT HAS BEEN 10 YEARS SINCE HAJI HASYIM MET ARWAH PAK MAT. HAJI HASHIM CONTINUED WITH TRAINING LIAN PADUKAN AT HIS OFFICE WITH HIS BUS DRIVERS AND WITH AZMI DATO’. NEVER DID HE THINK OF CHANGING THE NAME OR CREATED NEW SILAT NAME OTHER THAN LIAN PADUKAN AS OTHERS DID.

EVEN THOUGH, THEY NEVER MET FOR YEARS BUT NEWS OF HAJI HASYIM WAS WELL INFORMED BY THE OTHERS TO PAK MAT. IT WAS DESTINY AS THEY SAID, WHEN HAJI YUSOF IDRUS CAME TO MEET HAJI HASYIM AND TOLD THAT PAK MAT ASKED ABOUT HIM RECENTLY.

HAJI YUSOF ADVISED HIM TO COME BACK AND MEET PAK MAT, FURTHERMORE HAJI HASYIM WAS NOT WORKING ANYMORE THEN. IMMEDIATELY THAT DAY HAJI HASYIM TOGETHER WITH HAJI YUSOF MET ARWAH. IT WAS LIKE A FATHER AND SON AFFAIR.

HAJI HASHIM CONTINUED WITH ARWAH PAK MAT UNTIL ON THE 11TH MAY 1997, 9 A.M. ARWAH PAK MAT KEDIDI PASSED HAJI HASYIM WITH THE ANCIENT, SACRED SCROLL (THE NUKIL) OF LIAN PADUKAN AT THE OFFICIAL OPENING OF GELANGGANG KANGKAR PULAI, JOHOR.

TO MAKE IT OFFICIAL AND BLESSED, ARWAH PAK MAT BROUGHT HAJI HASYIM TO MEET ARWAH PAK ANJANG IBRAHIM. ARWAH PAK ANJANG IBRAHIM WAS HOSPITALISED AT THAT TIME AND THEY MET HIM LATE EVENING BEFORE MAGHRIB. ARWAH PAK ANJANG GAVE HAJI HASYIM SOMETHING VALUABLE BEFORE THEY LEFT. HE PASSED AWAY JUST AFTER MAGHRIB THAT DAY, ON FRIDAY.

LATER ARWAH PAK MAT AND HAJI HASYIM WENT TO SEE ANOTHER MASTER OF BUAH PUKOL MERSING ARWAH PAK JUSOH BIN BUYONG.

ARWAH PAK ANJANG WAS ONE OF THE GURU OF BUAH PUKOL MERSING DURING THE PERIOD OF CHU AMAN ( ABDUL RAHMAN BIN CHIK ). CHU AMAN WAS THE NUKIL HOLDER BEFORE PAK MAT KEDIDI, BEFORE IT WAS PASSED TO HAJI HASYIM.ONLY THE CHOSEN AND THE SELECTED ONE WILL BE THE 'PEWARIS NUKIL' OR THE SCROLL BEARER. IT WAS DESTINE TO BE WITH AYAHANDA HAJI HASYIM OF LIAN PADUKAN.






AFTER MORE THAN 15 YEARS, LIAN PADUKAN GREW TO A GREATER HEIGHTS. AYAHANDA HAS PRODUCE MORE’KHATAM’ GURUS AND MORE NEW GELANGGANG HAS BEEN SET UP IN MOST OF THE STATES IN MALAYSIA.

WITH ALLAH BLESSINGS, OUR DOA, OUR PRAYERS AND THE SINCERERITY OF AYAHANDA HAJI HASYIM IN TEACHING US, INSYAALLAH, LIAN PADUKAN WILL STRIVE FOR EXCELLENCE.

I WISH ALL OF MY MUSLIM BROTHERS AND SISTERS - SELAMAT HARI RAYA AIDILFITRI

Ramadan Al-Mubarak dan Demo USJ2

Salam,


Saya bagi pihak Lian Padukan Academy ingin mengucapkan Selamat Menyambut bulan Ramadan Al-Mubarak dan Selamat Berpuasa. Dengan izinNYA kita diberi peluang sekali lagi untuk bertemu dengan bulan Ramadan ini yang di awalnya ada Kerahmatan, di tengahnya ada Keampunan dan di hujungnya ada pembebasan api neraka. Janganlah di persia-siakan peluang yang Allah s.w.t berikan pada kita semua.

Untuk topik kali ini saya ingin berkongsi demonstrasi yang diadakan bersama Cikgu Raziman di Sekolah USJ2 pada 31st July 2010.
Demo adalah sempena Kanival Tahunan Sekolah tersebut disamping mempromosi pembukaan cawangan Lian Padukan di USJ, insyaAllah.


Permintaan adalah dari pihak sekolah terbabit yang mahukan sendiri Lian Padukan...hahaha best tu.

Demo telah di kendalikan oleh Cikgu Kamaruddin @ Raziman bersama dengan murid2 kecil beliau yang terdahulu dan dibantu bersama oleh 3 orang murid sekolah rendah juga dari Lian PAdukan Academy Gombak. Sorakan dan tepukan dari penonton yang dan lagu gendang silat yang dimaikan sunguh hebat sekali hari itu.

Response dari cikgu2 dan murid2 sunguh menggalakan dan insyaAllah kelas akan di mulakan selepas Hari Raya.

Bagi pihak Yang Di Pertua, LP Academy, pengerusi Selangor dan seluruh warga Lian Padukan, kami ucapkan tahniah dan Selamat Pulang kepada Cikgu RAziman ke USJ2. Ibarat sirih pulang ke gagang.

Walaupun begitu setelah habis demo ini sudah ada pihak yang cuba menggagalkan usaha yang baik dan murni ini. Sekali lagi, kami sudah menjangkakan ini akan berlaku. Tohmahan dan fitnah yang disebarkan tidak kami endahkan. Kami berdoa di bulan yang mulia ini supaya usaha cikgu Raziman ini berjaya dan di permudahkan. Kami berdoakan agar Allah bukakan lah pintu hati orang ini dengan Nur cahayaNya supaya insaf dan bertaubat.

Lagipun kalau yang punya badan sudah setuju, apa kami peduli. betul tak....betuullll.

kami warga Lian Padukan punyai semangat yang kental dan niat yang ikhlas untuk mengembang Lian Padukan ini. Usaha ini akan tetap di teruskan bersama wakil sekolah USJ2. Lawan tetap lawan.....kalau ada ugutan, kepada pihak yang berkuasalah kami ajukan.

Terima Kasih.

Sifu Luke with Lian Padukan




Salam,

Last week, was a memorable weekend for me and Lian Padukan Academy. I am hosting Sifu Luke Holloway from Japan. Actually, he is from Australia but resides in Japan. The week earlier, he was involved with the Lion Dance International Competition in Genting Higlands. Anyway his priority was to give some donations to the orphanages in Shah Alam, Kelang, Gombak and Kampar Perak. Part of his collection conducting seminars and teaching in Japan and Europe last year and this year were for these orphanges.


The 2 days before his departure to Australia ( to conduct his seminar in Melbourne ) we spent together talking on silat, martial arts and checking out our styles.


He did spend an hour with some of Lian Padukan members sharing his experience teaching the arm forces, police and security worlwide. He demonstrated some of the techniques of demobilizing people, crowd control and disarmament of guns/knife. One thing I noticed was his way of alertness and awarness was similiar taught in Lian Padukan. Always 'cega' and 'curiga'.. He 's experienced as a bodyguard and bouncer helps him a lot. He wanted something that is applicable to his job ( as a bodyguard ) and also in his teaching for the security. He said "no point of learning a beautifull and flowery form of art/ silat/ martial arts but is not applicable. He has been shot at, bottles and chairs thrown at him, cut by knifes and involved in fights. Those kind of styles will not help him. As one of the guru said, if you want to learn to dance go to a dancing school. In LIAN PADUKAN we teach you how to fight...

He also came to our training class the next day.I told him about Lian Padukan and showed him our stlye and he agreed. He did show some of the human weapon footage to his japanese students before comming to Malaysia and they wanted sifu Luke to check us out. InsyaAllah if all goes well, we will have the chance of teaching the japanese the " ART of LIAN PADUKAN" - "LIAN PADUKAN - Street Fighting ".


Sifu Luke, did ask me what do I want?

I told him, as a member of Lian Padukan as a Khatam Guru as a secretary of Lian Padukan Malaysia and also my personal wish to make my grandmaster proud by making LIAN PADUKAN being taught outside of Malaysia. It is the least contribution I could do to my grandmaster Hj Mohammed Hasyim and LIAN PADUKAN.

As for me, I just do it for LIAN PADUKAN and the generation to come ( including my kids ) . We must show a good examples to them and teach them the right way to grow with and hopefully others will follow. We do not care what others think or like/ dislike or comments about us. These negative and bad intention people and comments will not get you anywhere. They will just rot anyway in the end....
In other words you just have to WALK THE TALK....

Likewise in business, if you like my products, you will definately buy from me IF NOT you will go looking somewhere else. It is simple as that !!


I am Lian Padukan. Lian Padukan is Hisham Giant.
