As part of Singapore's Bicentennial year, we brought back Pesta Sukan this year as part of GetActive! Singapore.

Did you know that Silat is a collective word for a class of indigenous martial arts from the geo-cultural area of Southeast Asia. It is traditionally practice in BruneiIndonesiaMalaysiaSingapore, portions of the Philippines, southern part of Thailand and central part of Vietnam. There are hundreds of different styles (aliran) and schools (perguruan) but they tend to focus either on strikes, joint manipulation, weaponry, or some combination thereof.

Silat exponents thrilled judges and spectators alike at the GetActive! Singapore Pesta Sukan 2019 at Heartbeat@Bedok!
