Merpati Putih is an ancient Indonesian practice that combines fitness, breathing exercises, meditation, and self-defense. Highly trained instructors Nate and Mike Zeleznick’s passion and respect for the martial art have culminated in MP USA. At the accredited Merpati Putih martial-arts school, they pass on these skills in classes for children and adults of any fitness level, drawing from their work with high-ranking Merpati Putih specialists. Beyond teaching technical skills, sessions for adults focus on overall fitness and bolstering the connection between mind and body, and kids’ classes impart values such as self-confidence, manners, and responsibility. The Zeleznicks also arm women with the tools to defend themselves in self-defense classes.
