Unless you are wearing an iron plated cup, you are not prepared for this movie. It will beat you down and make you beg for more.

Huh, thought someone would have mentioned it already… Anyway, since you weren’t sure, the martial art used by the main character in The Raid movies is called Silat; a martial art native to Malaysia which is taught to all soldiers and police officers in the country, kind of the same way that the martial art Krav Maga is taught to all soldiers in Israel. In The Raid (and I presume The Raid 2, though I haven’t seen it yet) the main character is a police officer, so his skill with Silat was just gained as part of his standard police training.
For some reason I can’t edit my posts… I said Malasya, I meant to say Indonesia, where The Raid movies take place. though the martial art is also used in Malaysia and a couple other nations in the South China Sea
The fighting style is called Penjak Silat
