Silat is a general term that comprehensively denotes all Martial Arts based on the originally Southeast Asian (Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Southern Philippines) arts of Penca(k) and Silat. The root philosophy of Penca(k) and Silat in Southeast Asia includes aspects of self defense, social and spiritual ethics, arts, and sports.

In South East Asia and other parts of the world a world union of Pencak Silat (PERSILAT, headquarters located in Jakarta, Indonesia) exists, though this organization is not recognized by all schools.
