Since NewSM no longer gives a link to the URL of commenters, I have started putting my URL at the end of my comments.
The fighting technique of the men seemed to have elements of tai chi and tae kwan do. I came across a fascinating video yesterday of Minangkabau women fighting, which is also a combination of tai chi and tai kwan do, but with a stronger element of dance than the men (see here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c-M9IuDifFk)
For another view of the fighting, and for a photo of an Indonesian war ship, see here: http://goo.gl/Vrq6Mt
Rumour has it that SmugMug will not longer support the communities including the Daily Photo Community. I think that this would be a shame, and hope those who agree with me should make their opinions known to SmugMug.
