About the Pencak Silat Federation

The Pencak Silat Federation of the UK (PSF UK) is the only national body for Pencak Silat (Silat) in the UK that is officially recognised by the world governing body for Silat, the International Pencak Silat Federation (PERSILAT) based in Jakarta, Indonesia.

The PSF UK has been established to encourage, promote and develop genuine, traditional Pencak Silat of the Malay-Indonesian Archipelago in the United Kingdom (England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland).

The PSF UK monitors the development of Silat organisations in the UK, checks whether the organisations and Silat instructors in the UK are qualified and acts as a general enquiry point to the British public.

The PSF UK has played a leading role in the establishment of the European Pencak Silat Federation, which consists of all recognised European members of PERSILAT. The domicile and the Secretariat of the European Pencak Silat Federation is currently in London.
