Penjak Silat or Pencak Silat is an all encompassing term for the martial arts originating in Indonesia just as Kung Fu is to Chinese arts. There are hundreds of styles and systems of pencak silat.
It is a full-body fighting form using striking, grappling and throwing as well as incorporating flexible, impact, and edged weapons. Within pencak every part of the body is used and is subject to being attack.

As to what and how a practitioner will learn and practice...depends on which system or style is studied.

It's the most fun art I have done so far over the last 20 years :)

And like Danny T said........

Which style or school are you looking at specifically?
