This martial art at UNIPMA is an effort to equip students to be skilled in the field of Pencak silat, as well as to preserve the culture of the archipelago as a bridge for students to achieve achievements.
Alya Adelliana won 1st place in the Class A Competition for Adult Females. She hoped that the title, which was bought up by UNIPMA students, could become an example for other fighters to continue to explore their potential and achieve achievements.
UNIPMA students recognize the success of these fighters because of their discipline in practicing while active in the martial arts school organization on their campus.
"All this time we have been diligent in training with other friends. For us, martial arts is not only for show-off but as a medium for forging ourselves and achieving achievements," said Alya.
