Only Tanding (match) categories require weight classifications. Tunggal (single), Ganda (double), and Regu (team) are open weight events, requiring only age and gender distinctions.


Before competing, each contestant must be subjected to two weigh-ins. During each weigh-in, the participants must wear a dry silat costume, without the inclusion of any guards (groin, joint) and sabuk/bengkung (belt/sash). Each weigh-in has to be done in the presence of a Referee-Jury member or official representatives from both teams.

If a contestant is unable to join the first weigh-in and has provided an acceptable reason, his or her name will still be included in the drawing of lots. He or she will still be permitted to compete, as long as they pass the second weigh-in.

The second weigh-in will take place 15 minutes before the start of a match. The procedure and rules for the second weigh-in is identical to that of the first weigh-in; the only difference is that any contestant found to have exceeded his or her category will face disqualification.
