Pencak Silat by Lu Gia Jen

Pencak Silat is a martial art from Southeast Asia. The name Pencak Silat is used in Indonesia. In Malaysia, one speaks of Bersilat and in the Philippines of Kali Silat. Pencak (pronounced pentjak) literally
means: (specialized) movement (s). Silat (from kilat) means in this context: fast as lightning
“Bersilat” means "to be busy with silat ', or in other words “practicing Pencak Silat”.

As in Karate, Taekwondo, Thai- or Kickboxing and Kung Fu, Pencak Silat uses punches, kicks and parries. Punches, kicks and parries, however, frequently are combined with throws, sweeping techniques and clamp-/or breaking techniques. Like the ones encountered in Judo, Jiu Jitsu and Aikido. That makes Pencak Silat a versatile martial art.
