"The World Pencak Silat Championship was originally due to be held in Singapore, which has since been cancelled. The rescheduling of this years World Championship has been welcomed by the Australian Pencak Silat community, who have not sent a team to the World Championship since Covid-19."

"With Australia hosting an International Pencak Silat competition in several months, the timing could not have been better in order to select the best team for the upcoming World Championship."

About Pencak Silat

Pencak Silat is a traditional Martial Art found in South-East Asia and has over 800 known styles in Indonesia alone. Indonesian styles of Pencak Silat were historically disguised as a dance during the Dutch occupation, with the most effective techniques hidden in the art form. Previously called the ‘Dutch East Indies’, Pencak Silat (that had been hidden for centuries) helped Indonesia gain their independence at the end of World War II. Pencak Silat then officially became a sport. Pencak Silat holds a World Championship every two years throughout South-East Asia.
