  • We need to have a cooperative relation to promote the art. Please caontact us to tbe below email address.
    If possible please let me have the contact info of the organization or community representing your SILAMBAM.
    We are holding world martial arts festival biennially inviting each country’s representative martial arts organization from 67 organization in 46 countries.

  • I need to confirm that International Silambam Committee (ISC) is an International body representing Silambam in India and the Upper organization of Silambam Association of India. And what is your organization doing in relation to the Silambam?

  • My email address is bong@womau.org. Please let me have your reply about my question. Thanks in advance.

    • Dear Bong Hyeon Sun,

      Thank you for contacting us.
      As you have requested our activities, we have sent a reply and photo of our National & International activities, games, sports, educational workshop, and Silambam trainings images (with details) to your email.

      1) No “Upper” Silambam organization in India controlling other country’s Association Law.
      We have no agreement with ownself claimed “Upper” level Silambam organization.

      2) More than 20-30 registered and they all immediately “Self-Claimed Upper” level in India, by using Silambam with International, Sports, Federation, Committee, Association, World, Global, and many more. The government never control their names as long they switching place of their names or adding A, B, C in between.

      Some in India, also registered by ownself “International Non-Olympic Committee” in India to get Silambam self-recognition & these against Rules of International Olympic Committee (IOC) in Switzerland. Very messy system.

      For question about our organization:

      “Silambam Asia” is a continent body under World Silambam Association (WSA). Our both organizations registered under the Ministry of Home Affairs-JPPM in MALAYSIA, and also with ACRA Regulatory Board in SINGAPORE. Especially, Silambam Asia (abide by ‘Association By-Law’) of the home country respectively in Malaysia & Singapore, “NOT” India.

      Silambam is the same as Yoga – an “Indian Traditional Arts” for everyone for learning/practice, NO upper level or lower-level control body, NO decree of Silambam ownership for the person or any organization, since more than 5000 years until today.

      Thank you.

      Regards,
      Secretary
