Seni Gayung Fatani is a style of silat from Malaysia based on joint-locking techniques. In Malay, the word seni means art and gayung or gayong is a word for martial arts,
synonymous with silat. Fatani means wise in Arabic and was chosen in 1976 because of its similarity to Pattani, the kingdom from where the art originated. The current grandmaster is Tuan
Guru Aminuddin Haji Anuar.
Seni Gayung Fatani originated in Pattani, Thailand before being brought to Kedah, Malaysia in 1840 by Syeikh Abdul Rahman. The style was expanded upon by his son Tok Yah Ramli.
Another of Abdul Rahman's students was Pak Teh Mat Ali who taught this style to Pak Andak Embong who in turn passed it down to Tuan Guru Anuar Abdul Wahab.
