Iko Uwais’s 5 most popular quotes

  • Silat is nothing new to my family; it’s been there for generations.
  • Silat is like kung fu, but with close combat, and it has its own traditional character. In a lot of movies in Indonesia, it has become mystical: people flying or pretending they can push fireballs with their hands.
  • Many people had identified silat for its dance-like movements, for its beauty, and for its grace. But ‘The Raid’ shows it in a fighting situation. It’s a very efficient, fast, hard-hitting form of martial art.
  • There are a lot of movies made in Indonesia every year, some of them action-based, but so few actually feature silat.
  • That’s the thing about being part of a Hollywood production. You always have to give your best performance, no matter the odds.
