Sometimes, we can’t help but be out in public in our uniforms. This usually attracts a lot of attention and interest in what we do. We get questions from people of all walks of life wondering if they would benefit from taking Merpati Putih classes. Today, we are going to look at why you should pursue martial arts practices in Ogden UT.
Why Should You Take Martial Arts?
First of all, we rarely get questions about why kids should get involved in martial arts. This is because the benefits are so well known. So, we will not get into it here since we have covered the benefits of martial arts for children in previous blog posts. For adults, the advantages may not be as obvious. Here are a few:
Stress Relief – Life is full of stress. An excellent way to stay healthy as well as improve your mental and physical fitness is with martial arts practices in Ogden, UT. Martial arts takes the negative energy out of your body and gets rid of it.
Health Benefits – Of course, martial arts is good for your health, but in what ways? Martial arts increases your hand-eye coordination, flexibility, natural strength, and balance. They also decrease your chance of injury.
Have Fun – As you take classes, you develop a level of camaraderie with your fellow classmates, and this creates a fun learning environment.
No One Is Left Behind – You learn and develop your skills at your own pace.
All Ability Levels Are Welcome – With team sports, if you aren’t the superstar, you don’t get the ball. With martial arts, everyone who engages in the classes gets the same benefits.
What Is Merpati Putih?
Merpati Putih, also called just MP, is the Indonesian Royal system of martial arts. It originated from the Javanese Royal family of Mataram and was passed on for generations before becoming a sports institution in Indonesia more than half a century ago. Today, there are over one million students as Merpati Putih has grown to become one of the biggest martial arts on the planet.
You may not have realized it, but Ogden, Utah is the only place in the Western Hemisphere where you can learn Merpati Putih. Mike and Nate Zeleznick, the founders of MP USA, were handpicked in 1999 to be trained by the Royal Heirs and Master Teachers of MP. Today, you can learn at their accredited and licensed academy.
