comment what is the real history and purpose of silat in a fight?
In a nutshell, silat is no different from martial arts like kravmaga and etc. What makes it unique is that is was develop by people with smaller frames, and using it to their advantages. Many of the moves incorporates very very low base or stances, and has alot of rolls and tumbles and fast movements. Aside from that, it is known that these practitioners do not wear armours and carry a very sharp dagger (keris) that would be able to pierce armor of that age. The tip was also poisoned so that just a cut would be fatal.

comment What are good exercises for building grip strength for judo and BJJ?
@user201 is right, but maybe start with a smaller one. The main emphasis is on holding something heavy and rough while keeping the palm open as much as possible. I started with huge coke bottles filled with sand then finally ended up with big rough bricks.

comment Can you be immune to chokeholds?
Oh my, I do hope people take this in with a pinch of salt and not literally. I do apologise @JohnP if it seemed abit extreme. What I posted was just an answer to the poster's question on being immunned to chokeholds. As for your point on knife attacks, we don't intentionally stab or cut ourselves but we do train with real sharp edged object like blades. We do get cut wounds but that with close supervision and full concentration, we minimize it. in the end it help with removing the fear of sharp object. Of course we start of with rubber knifes, then blunt steel knifes and then sharpened knives
