Originally the word silat was used as a generic term for any system of fighting. Burmese martial arts, for example, would be called silat Awa. Some Malay-speakers (especially in Indonesia) still use the word as such, as can be seen in the term ilmu silat (knowledge of silat) which can used for any fighting style. Today, the word has a formidable arsenal of terms used to refer to martial arts in Southeast Asia. It is usually called pencak silat in Indonesia or silek in the Minangkabau language. Some examples of the word’s application in Malaysia and Singapore include seni silat ( of silat) and seni bela-diri ( of self-defence).
