The literature journal above shows varied results on pencak silat movement skills. The selection of the 3 journals was adjusted to the researcher's aim, namely to analyze the movement skills of pencak silat. Based on a literature review from 3 journals, it can be concluded that in order to improve the quality of pencak silat movement skills, an analysis of movement skills is needed then make a classification and map the results in a table. Determining the right training model is also needed to improve pencak silat movement skills. If this is not enough, the development of a model/exercise program is also highly recommended so that the expected results are truly optimal as expected.
