As we look at our calendar of programs and events, it’s clear that 2018 is going to be another exciting year at MP USA. We are hesitant to talk about New Year’s resolutions because they generally involve some sort of fad workout or diet that you quit within a month or two. If this does not sound appealing to you, consider getting involved in a program that will serve you in the long term. Below are what we have to offer in 2018 and why Merpati Putih martial arts at MP USA is the best martial arts practice in Ogden Utah.
Our Regular Programs
We offer five regular classes that are specifically tailored to individuals with different abilities and backgrounds:
Youth Martial Arts
We have already written extensively about our Youth Martial Arts program in this blog. The classes are open to children ages 6 to 14 after they complete the three-lesson introductory classes. These take place Monday through Wednesday from 5 pm to 5:45 pm. Right now, we are offering a special deal on the intro classes: for $25, your young one can experience Merpati Putih (MP) and see if it’s right for them. A uniform is included in the deal.
Athletic Adventure Program
The Athletic Adventure Program (AAP) is our flagship program designed for students aged 15 and older who want to learn about all that MP has to offer. New classes begin in April and October, and the month prior to enrollment there are three required trial lessons. The next enrollment and trials start in March 2018.
Wealth of Health
Originally designed as a low-impact version of our AAP for adults 40 years of age or older, the Wealth of Health (WOH) is now available to everyone 15 and older. The next semester begins in January. Trial classes are not required but are recommended.
Vibravision (VV) teaches students how to take in their surroundings without the use of sight. The weekly classes are open to sighted individuals ten years and older who have completed six months of AAP or WOH. Immersion classes are offered to visually impaired or blind students.
Women’s Empowerment Class
In April and October of each year, we provide Women’s Ultimate Personal Protection and Street Survival (WUPPASS) events that help women learn an array of self-defense skills.
Other Events throughout the Year
We also have all sorts of other additional events throughout the year. Here are a few of them:
New Year’s Eve Exercise
Well, this year it’s on the eve of New Year’s Eve, but we will be holding an exercise and meditation power class that is not practiced during regular classes. The class is from 6 pm to 7:30 pm on December 30th. All students who have reached Dasar 2, WOH 1, or are currently in AAP, VV, or WOH are welcome to participate in this free event.
Classes in the Park
During the summer months, we hold five outdoor classes for all students.
MP USA Camping Trip
Each year, we host a camping trip for all past and present AAP, WOH, and VV members.
Testing and Initiation Events
Earning your next rank requires hard work. Each program has its own unique, fun, and challenging testing and initiation ceremonies.
Open House Martial Arts Demo
On March 9th at 6:30 pm, we will offer our first open house of 2018. Come see the school, meet the instructors, and see what makes MP USA great.
