The International Pencak Silat Rules & Regulations was formed by the International Pencak Silat Federation (PERSILAT) together with the contributions and inputs from the Four Founding Members in ensuring the officiating of the games is being conducted and judged fairly and equally.

Throughout the years since the establishment of the International Pencak Silat Federation (PERSILAT) on 11 March 1980, the game play has been evolving with improvements to follow the passage of time.

Some of the significant amendments were made to the International Rules and Regulations when there are needs to be included in the multi-event games, such as Asian Beach Games, which was primarily held in Bali – Indonesia, in 2008.

The Pencak Silat International Rules and Regulations is to be applied in most of the Pencak Silat events, where in this booklet is the upgraded and improved manual since the last update in August 2013. The International Pencak Silat Federation is in planning to enhance and diversify a Pencak Silat games thru new introduce competitions, such as; *World Cup, World League, Open World Freestyle Artistic Pencak Silat Championship, and the updated version for Pencak Silat to be played on the beach.

With the vast development of digital technology, Pencak Silat will have to move in accordance with the flow modernization, and have it implemented in the current norm and practices in a Pencak Silat competition.

This is another one fundraising initiative introduced by the Singapore Silat Federation to aid in improving the youth development programs catered for our Pencak Silat National Athletes. The COVID-19 Pandemic has affected most of industries in Singapore, and there is no exception for Singapore Silat Federation. The funding allocated for the program is also affected, where we will have to result in reducing the number of programs and activities, we have planned for them. And another main objective is to help athletes with financial or food bank assistance with our Silat with a Heart programme.

The 24-hours non-stop Pencak Silat Display is the inaugural and interesting fundraising initiative where the Silat club (our affiliates) will showcase their Silat moves artistically in showing appreciation to those contributors who have donated the amount and fund for the Singapore Silat Federation. We are targeting to raise a total amount of $500,000 for this project.

Apart from that, Singapore Silat Federation is also aiming to hold a national record for organizing and having Pencak Silat demonstration for 24-hours and to be included in the “Singapore Book of Records”.

On behalf of the Board Members, I am calling out to you to show your understanding and support the future of our national athletes who will one day bring glory to the nation, by contributing Cash Donation to Singapore Silat Federation. Your name or your company’s name will be published and broadcasted live as “Donor” at our official website, and all our social media platforms for a period of 1-month, for donation S$500 and above.
