Kpo Kia and I were excited when Sis invite us to join her for a demo class with Kali Majapahit to experience martial arts!
Homegrown martial arts school Kali Majapahit is specialized in Southeast Asian martial arts and we will be attending the class in its second location in Singapore. Located in Upper Serangoon, the newly-built 750 square feet training hall also known as a ‘dojo’, aims to provide more personalized and targeted classes for its members.
This new dojo can accommodate up to 12 students and conduct a greater number of small classes, in line with existing safe distancing regulations.
During the 1-hour demo class, Instructor Ben gave us a brief introduction to the basic concept of Kali Majapahit’s teaching. He first understands what are our (
mis)concept of Martial Arts, then he shared with us on what Martial Arts is really all about – beyond flying fists and Kungfu Panda kicking, we will also learn about coordination, respect, communication. He then makes us do a few exercises, in order to demonstrate his points.
After the 1-hour demo class, Instructor Ben patiently corrected Kpo Kia on her posture, and let her help out in keeping the mini mats on the floor. Kpo Kia liked the martial art lesson so much that till today she keeps asking when will Yi-Yi bring her to attend the martial art class again.
About Kali Majapahit
Martial arts have traditionally been about personal wellness and growth, but this has taken a backseat in recent years with much focus being on competitions and fight events.

They aimed to let everyone enjoy and reap the benefits of learning martial arts, even for children as young as three years old.
