About
Balinese people are not only blessed with the art and culture inheritance, the forefathers also hand over "Mepantigan" – Balinese martial arts. Putu Witsen is one of the young Balinese generation who are keen to preserve this tradition and introduce "Mepantigan" to the rest of the world. Upon arrival at Putu Witsen house compound, located near Batubulan village, Putu or others family members will serve you a special welcome drink made by starch rice water. Change into Tridatu or Poleng sarongs (Tridatu = red, white and black colors or Poleng = black and white colors). These colors represent Tri Murti, the god trinity concept as one of the very basic believe of Hinduism in Bali. Red represents Brahma, the creator, black for Wisnu, the preserver and white represent Ciwa as the destroyer.
