This is not my video, and all video credit goes to Ahyan Arif. Well, I do not understand the language that they speak in this video. If you understand the language, you know what they are saying.

So Kerambit is a small knife. What can you do with it? You can do a lot of thing with a Karambit. There is a hole. You can put your finger and grab the knife tight. You can roll the knife and change the position.

You can use it as a defense against the strike or, if the attacker defends your strike, you can use it to attack him again from there. To be good at it, you need to spend time on the practice. You will not be an expert overnight. When you have patience, and train consistently, you can do better.

Stepping and the way they move forward to strike, you can pay attention to that. Your footwork is important to use Kerambit. You can use it close range. When you practice, you can use a Kerambit that is not sharp. Take care of your training partner while training.

Nice article! Some silat artists in Sumatra and Malaysia are still performing it I believe.

For me One of the best kerambit fight display would be the Kitchen Fight Scene from The Raid 2: Berandal. Epic finale fight, 10 minutes non stop with beautiful fighting coreography.

Yes, different weapons like Kerambit is represented very well in movies. We get to know different martial arts mainly via sports - fighting competition and movies. Still, there are many martial arts that we are not aware of.
