If you think martial arts is just about getting in good shape and maybe learning to defend yourself against an attacker, you must not know about Merpati Putih. At MP USA, we teach mind body spirit martial arts in Ogden Utah. This means that we address the whole person. We not only want you to be able to defend yourself, but we want you to learn how to get the most out of every aspect of your life.
How MP Strengthens Your Mind, Body, and Spirit
The goal of our studio is to facilitate growth in the mind, body, and spirit of every student who enters our facilities. You must improve these three parts of your life in order to remain in good health. But, what do we mean when we refer to these three elements?
First of all, the mind represents expanding one’s knowledge through learning new things, alertness, your overall mental health, and stretching the mind with new thought processes, ideas, and challenges. The body represents your stamina, flexibility, strength, and physical health. And, the spirit is your belief in a power greater than yourself, being slow to anger, having spiritual health, and developing a purposeful life, positive attitude, and strong character.
None of this comes easy. Even practitioners of MP at the highest levels must constantly work to hone their spirits, bodies, and minds. Fortunately, it is through MP that you are able to improve all three. We also teach that outside of the studio, you must seek self-improvement opportunities. This might include taking time to meditate, talking to someone or reading something that expands your mind, and engaging in healthy practices with your body.
Once you achieve an excellent balance of your mind, body, and spirit, you will notice significant changes in your everyday life. You can count on increased concentration and focus, mental resilience, and patience and self-discipline. You should not expect to become some perfect human being, but part of attaining a higher level of enlightenment is in striving to improve.
MP USA Offers Classes for Students of All Levels
We have a full slate of classes starting up in 2018. On January 3, we start our Wealth of Health class. This is a program open to anyone 14 years of age or older, though it was developed for students over the age of 40. It is geared toward individuals interested in getting in the best shape of their life without engaging in intense martial arts training. Classes are Wednesdays from 7 pm to 9 pm. And, if you are unable to sign up this winter, there will also be new terms starting in April and October.
Vibravision 1.0 also begins in April and October. Vibravision is a program that has been in use for decades to help blind people improve their mobility and orientation abilities. However, even sighted individuals can expand their consciousness and become more attune with their natural surrounds through this course. Before enrolling in Vibravision 1.0, students must complete six months of training in Wealth of Health (which, again, begins January 3, 2018) or the Athletic Adventure Program.
New classes for the Athletic Adventure Program start twice a year in April and October. This high-intensity, high-impact program is open to anyone over the age of 14 who wants to learn an undiluted, pure, secret martial art while working to push your limits.
MP USA is the only studio that teaches Merpati Putih in the Western Hemisphere. If you are interested in becoming a whole person through mind body spirit martial arts in Ogden Utah, contact us today to get started!
