Actualization of violent conflict is seen as a social phenomenon to express itself in aggressive behavior. However, this behavior is basically a process of social learning to practice the skills, traits, values, attitudes, norms and knowledge associated with the role in the sport. This research was a form of case study which focused on the reality of the social phenomenon of violent conflict on members of Pencak silat (the Indonesian martial arts) organizations. Cases of violent conflict were examined through qualitative methods, so that the study of the problems and the application of research methods were to be argumentative choice. Reality was the data source described and analyzed in order to establish a proposition. The proposition built was that strong solidarity would build groups of ingroup-outgroup through routine activities that were functional and dysfunctional. The functional properties would strengthen the solidarity of the group members. They would lead to dysfunctional attitudes while deglorifying members. The inference that violent conflict happening was influenced by the attitude of the leadership that put the prestige of the organization. Based on the findings, the value of understanding the teachings of Pencak Silat is not maximized and the transformation of Pencak Silat as a cultural value to the sport is not complete.
