Pencak Silat in Indonesia

In Indonesia, the "pencak silat" used to indicate more than 800 martial arts schools and styles spread across more than 13,000 islands.. However, this is actually a compound name consisting of two terms used in different regions.  Pencak Silat was chosen in 1948 as a unifying term for the Indonesian fighting styles. It was a compound of the two most commonly used words for martial arts in Indonesia. Pencak was the term used in central and east Java, while Silat was used in Sumatra and Borneo. In modern usage, Pencak and Silat are seen as being two aspects of the same practice. Pencak is the performance aspects of the martial art, while Silat is the essence of the fighting and self-defense.
