This is a Sumatran substyle from the Menangkabau area. It uses a distinctive footwork pattern. Practitioners who are ready to fight indicate their readiness by slapping their thighs and then keeping the hand in position to block attacks to the groin. The main attack employs a form of locked-thumb fist similar to the "phoenix eye" fist used in some Kung Fu styles. Attacks are typically directed to points along the center line of the body.

To be counted a practitioner of Pauh Silat, a character must know the Block, Punch and Rahasia Strike maneuvers.
