What Is Merpati Putih?
Merpati Putih is actually an acronym in the Java language. It is short for Mersudi Patitising Tindak Pusakane Titising Hening, which means “seeking truth until it got to tranquility.” Merpati Putih is also roughly translated as “white dove,” the symbol of justice and peace for all of humanity.
Merpati Putih, or MP for short, is the Indonesian Royal system of Pencak Silat, which is a general term for the Indonesian Martial Arts. In fact, there are more than 700 different types of Pencak Silat native to Malaysia and Indonesia.
MP originated from the Javanese Royal family of Mataram and was passed on for generations before guru Saring Hadipoernomo handed it on to his two sons, Poerwoto Hadipoernomo and Budi Santoso Hadipoernomo, who expanded this knowledge to what we know MP to be today. It then become a sports institution in Indonesia in 1963. It has since grown to be one of the biggest martial arts in the world with more than one million students.
