Research/Original Article (دارای رتبه معتبر)

Pencak silat in different areas of the globe has become a popular sport, and complexities combinations of punches, kicks, and both have been developed over the years.


This study focused on kick speed and the aim was to develop a digital-based instrument for measuring kick speed with dynamic targets in Pencak Silat learning.


We used the research and development method to produce a product and then test its effectiveness. A study was conducted in which 185 participants were between 18 and 35 years old, male and female through field trials and experts’ decisions. Questionnaires feasibility (relevance, accuracy, convenience, and practicality) and study documents were the main instruments and sources employed during data collection.


After analyzing all of the data, the validity test results obtained from experts in Sports, Pencak Silat, and Information Technology were 92.5%, 91.0%, and 94.0%, respectively, which is considered to be in the very good category. Similarly, the reliability test results for both small groups of males and females were virtually equal, with scores of 0.968 and 0.983, respectively, indicating a very high level of reliability. The data obtained from large groups of both males and females also showed good results for the new product, with scores of 0.908 and 0.915, respectively.


The results obtained from both experts and the product itself demonstrate that the digital measuring tool for kick speed can be used with ease, practicality, and accuracy to determine the speed of Pencak Silat kicks. This tool is expected to be useful for both learning and competition purposes, helping to assess kick speed and improve overall performance.
