The Initiation Ceremony

            As usual before going into training , the Gayong practitioner must been accepted as a student in an ceremony conducted by the qualified representative of the late founder of Silat Seni Gayong or the body that has the authority of doing so. This is not an exception to all who wanted to seek the knowledge of SIlat Seni Gayong whether its in Malaysia or outside Malaysia.

            This what the Mauritians went through. In performing the initiation, if the student are Muslim they are urge to recite a few versus of the Quran and if they are non Muslim they are pledge to an oath. This traditional ceremony has been passed through generation since during the days of the Malacca Sultanate.
