Why Mepantigan (Ubud) is special ?
Mepantigan is a form of Balinese martial arts that involves similar physical techniques to those found in self-defense traditions around the world. But Mepantigan extends the form by also drawing upon Balinese drama, contemporary dance, and gamelan music, fusing fighting with the performing arts to create an entirely new cultural phenomenon. Participants wear uniforms consisting of traditional Balinese clothing, and can compete on the beach, in the mud of rice fields, or in any open space.
Practitioners of Mepantigan gain physical fitness, release stress, and learn valuable lessons in camaraderie and sportsmanship. In addition to physical skills, strength, and agility, both emotional and spiritual intelligences are utilized.
What to explore at Mepantigan (Ubud)?
You spend your lives trying to keep your little ones clean and tidy – now it’s time to let them run wild and get filthy with some wholesome family fun.
If you already know what Mepantigan is (without googling it) then we are very impressed with your Balinese knowledge. Basically it means mud games.
Mepantigan are traditional cultural games, which usually take place in the rice fields as a token of respect to Dewi Sri, the rice goddess.
Join Putu and Ayu for an afternoon of wrestling, frog catching, tug of war and mud horse racing. These lovely locals offer an authentic Balinese experience that you will never forget.
Let kids be kids and burn off some energy wrestling in the mud. If you are really lucky, they might even learn something about the tradition of Mepantigan. Mums can also have a relaxing mud massage – it might be a bit different compared to your usual spa experience though.
No point bringing the baby wipes for this one, you are going to need something more substantial when it comes to cleaning up. Maybe a hosepipe.
