IntroductionMost of Malaysian Silat organizations are narrowly focus within the boundries of Malaysia. Every silat association follows a strictly self prescribed way of teaching andlearning within the domains of local setting, each claiming to be better that the other.Amongst organizations, there are so much negative politicking that has depleted time,energy and resources , thus creating very little inter-association collaboration to createa national martial arts system. There is too much in fighting within organizations andthe associations are caught in a self deceptive traps of involution.As compared to Karate, Kung Fu, Judo, Tae Kwon Do, Akido and the rest, silat hasnot evolved to a international platform of martial arts to be accepted and recognizeduniversally.

Way of Life for both Muslims and Non Muslim
enthusiasts creating a new platform to propagateIslam as a religion of Peace and Universal Salvation.PIKUM could be the fore-runner in creating a new pathway into the future for thesystemization of a
national silat movement
with international recognition andacceptance to be at par excellence with the Chinese, Japanese, Korean Brazilian,European and American systems of martial arts.
