Seni Gayung Fatani Malaysia Association (PSGFM) is the organization that developed and developing traditional martial arts heritage, maintaining its tradition of of the Original Malay Silat Peninsula with the traditional game known as 'bergayung' or 'bergayung pulut'. 

The School of Seni Gayung Fatani founded by Sir Sheikh Abdul Rahman Tahir about 1890. He set up silat training ring while teaching religous knowledge. Among the famous warrior who had studied with him was Haji Ramli Abd. Rahman, Haji Pak Tea Mohd Ali, Imam Mansor and Pakndak Embong. The late Mr. Haji Anuar bin Abdul Wahab (AMN) with older gurus and some other members of this organization have registered on 14 September 1976 under the Societies Act 1966 [PPP.S1886/28/76/(26)]. It was then registered under the Sports Development Act 1997 no. PPS.0452/98/06/01/68-1 registration (5). In 2013, PSGFM re-registered back to Registrar of Societies (ROS) under the order of Sport Commissioner.

Allahyarham Tuan Haji Anuar Abdul Wahab was the first grandmaster for Seni Gayung Fatani Malaysia Association (1945-2009). He past away in 2009 at the age of 63 years old. His eldest son, Tuan Guru Aminuddin Haji Anuar (1970 - now) was elected to be the second grandmaster after him. He continues his father work with dignity and honor in order to promote PSGFM to young generation. His principle not to accept the responsibility while his father still alive (2001) was highly appreciated by many gurus in world of silat. Since 2009, he is the MAIN reference for the purposes of scholarship and teaching of PSGFM.


The school of Seni Gayung Fatani is one of the group from Silat Melayu (the Malay Silat) trend which practiced by the Malay community/race in Malay Peninsula. It is also known as 'silat pulut' or 'gayung pulut'. This group was registered under the name Pertubuhan Seni Gayung Fatani Malaysia (PSGFM) or Seni Gayung Fatani Malaysia Association (in english).

Silat Melayu  is derived from the art of war of Malay tradition. The silat is used by Malay warriors to defend the civilization of traditional Malay empire in mainland of southeast Asia. 

Silat Melayu has spread/develop to several groups or institutions which lead by guru silat (silat guru), but the movements, techniques, shape and forms are the same as the content of silat that is passed from one generation to generation is the same lesson.
