Objective of International Pencak Silat Ranking System
Since Pencak Silat was first established in an international competition in the 1980s, no proper ranking system was developed as a benchmark for the participants or athletes.
As years goes by, the sport was further improved and enhanced in accordance with the passage of time, just like any other martial arts in the world.
Some of the sports that have implemented ranking system are; Badminton, Football, Athletic, Tennis, Swimming, and many more.

For Pencak Silat, the importance of implementing Ranking System is to create professional standards and quality not only for the athletes but also for the International Pencak Silat Federation (PERSILAT). Next, by upholding the standards for Pencak Silat, the sport will be recognized internationally and increased the chances to be part of a competitive sport in the Olympic.
Lastly, by having Ranking System we will be able to see consistent achievements and making comparison on their abilities and performance for each participation.
The International Pencak Silat Ranking System was introduced also due to the new upgrades in the rules and regulations, and the continuation to diversify the sport and its gameplay.
