The Event was held in celebration of Qatar National Sports Day and Qatar-Indonesia Year of Culture. Five renowned athletes and performers of Pencak Silat will demonstrate their skill at Multaqa Plaza, Education City on February, 14th.

‚ÄúPencak Silat‚ÄĚ is a¬†traditional sport deeply rooted in cultural heritage, values, and philosophies. The embedded local values taught Pencak Silat practitioners to maintain their relationship with God, human beings, and nature. Thus, it is a complex form of traditional martial art which also emphasizes mental, spiritual, self-defense, and artistic aspects.
