Sport Silat

Sport is one of the four pillars of Pencak Silat. Competitions provide opportunities for athletes to test their training in a controlled setting whether in sparring or in forms performance. The forms (jurus) used in competition and the sparring ruleset are used within our practice as a supplement to the traditional curriculum.

Sport Silat is governed worldwide by PERSILAT — the International Pencak Silat Federation, and in the US the United States Sport Silat Association is the central organization for Pencak Silat competition.
