MP USA's Student's of the Month
December 2018 Athletic Adventure Program
Jonny started his training at MP-USA in the Athletic Adventure Program in October 2017. His purpose for starting training is so that he can better understand himself, and who he truly is. His feeling is that by knowing this, he will better contribute to his family and friends and society. During his training, he has found a love of the energetic dynamics of movement. Jonny says that his favorite moment, to date, is his Dasar 2 test breaking, saying “you couldn’t have paid me to stop smiling.”
Outside of his training, Jonny enjoys Reading, running, and woodworking. You can almost always count on him to have a good joke or two in his back pocket, as well. An interesting fact about Jonny is that his first career choice was to be a tattoo artist.
“Ask questions and remember that if you already knew how to do it, you wouldn’t have to be here…. PS don’t eat before power.” ~ Jonny
What the trainers have to say about Jonny:
“He takes his training seriously, but is still lighthearted and fun with everyone he interacts with. His commitment to excellence, both in his training and personally, are very enjoyable to be around.” ~ Mbak Angie
December 2018 Vibravision® Program
Dave joined MP-USA in the Wealth of Health Program, the spring of 2013, he has since joined the Athletic Adventure Program. His proudest moment, so far, is when he earned his Baju. Dave originally started his training so that he could learn more about the energy aspects of MP-USA. In October 2014, Dave was one of the students chosen to be part of the Vibravision training class. His love of the energy side of the martial art has helped him develop his skills to an extremely high level. He has now taken on the role of mentor in the Vibravision classes, and is helping others to achieve their potential in Vibravision.
When he isn’t playing with his Vibravision skills, he enjoys playing video games on his PS4, and working on vehicles. His other love is brewing some of his own favorite drinks. One thing that he wants everyone to know is that his son is his hero.

December 2018 Wealth of Health
Chet has been part of MP-USA and the Wealth of Health Program for 4 years, and has loved every moment. His training has helped keep him in better shape, more flexible and have a clear mental focus. These each help him to perform his other hobbies at a higher level of expertise and prevent injuries if something happens to go wrong. The thing that Chet loves the most about his practice is feeling more mentally alert and energized after classes, especially if he felt like he was lacking something before he got there. His best memory was his first class, and says that he doesn’t ever want to live without WOH.
Outside of his MP training, Chet loves anything that gets his adrenaline pumping. He is an avid skier, mountain biker, and has been riding dirt bikes nearly his whole life. He will get out to the desert and race as often as he can. Chet loves being on the back of a bike on dirt, whether it is motorized or pedal powered. He finds time to play and enjoy life, while also being a single dad to his wonderful 16 year old daughter, and loves his big sweetheart pit bull.
“Stick with it and embrace it. It only gets better and you will continue to learn new techniques and ideas.” ~ Chet
What the trainers have to say about Chet:
“Chet is always positive, has consistently been an amazing power-builder, and always encourages his friends to be healthier by coming to WOH. Chet is the man!” ~ Mas Nate
