Silat (Minangkabau: silek; Indonesian/Malay: pencak silat) is a collective word for indigenous martial arts from a geo-cultural area of Southeast Asia encompassing most of the Indonesian Archipelago, the Melayu of Indonesia and part of Melayu (Malay Peninsula), and the entirety of the Nusantara (South East Asia). Originally developed in what are now Indonesia, Melayu at Peninsular Malaysia, South Thailand, and Singapore, it is also traditionally practiced in Brunei, Vietnam and the southern Philippines. There are hundreds of different styles but they tend to focus either on strikes, joint manipulation, throws, bladed weaponry, or some combination thereof. Silat is one of the sports included in the Southeast Asian Games and other region-wide competitions. Training halls are overseen by separate national organizations in each of the main countries the art is practiced. These are Persekutuan Silat Kebangsaan Malaysia (PESAKA) from Malaysia, Persekutuan Silat Brunei Darussalam (PERSIB) from Brunei, Ikatan Pencak Silat Indonesia (IPSI) from Indonesia and Persekutuan Silat Singapura (PERSISI) from Singapore. Practitioners are called pesilat. –Editor's choicemore
Wing Chun (Chinese: 詠春; pinyin: yǒng chūn; Jyutping: wing ceon; literally: "spring chant"), also romanised as Ving Tsun or Wing Tsun, (and sometimes substituted with the characters 永春 "eternal springtime"); is a concept-based Chinese martial art and form of self-defense utilising both striking and grappling while specialising in close-range combat. –Editor's choicemore
