Getting Muddy in Mepantigan Mud Fun Bali Activity

Bali, Indonesia


Do you want to experience the authentic activity full culture and arts in Bali? Come and try MEPANTIGAN and get dirty in the muddy rice field that connecting back to motherland and learn Balinese culture and arts.


Mepantigan, which means “to throw,” is a form of Balinese wrestling that combines self-defence techniques, traditional dancing and fun in the mud. The act is soundtracked by gamelan (a Balinese percussion ensemble) while participants grapple in knee-deep mud with the aim to tripping or throwing their opponent down into the rice field.

Step over a bamboo bridge into Yayasan Mepantigan’s open-air training grounds, encircled by palm forests. You’ll be greeted with a homemade lemongrass-and-pandan-leaf soda and a deafening kelaras welcome dance, performed by a troupe of masked men.

Your hosts—Komang and other young people involved in Mepantigan’s program—will help you into a saput poleng (traditional sarong) in readiness for training. Shadowing Komang, you’ll pick up sparring techniques, practice Balinese dance gestures, and learn chants like “Seng ken, ken cang, Katos!,” meaning, “It’s okay, I’m strong!” Prepped for battle, you’ll take your newly-acquired skills to the ring—which, in mepantigan, is a muddy field. For more details, you can watch this video below.
