Introduction To Our History

Vibravision® is one of the five (5) disciplines of Merpati Putih (aka “MP”) – a martial art/meditation/energy/consciousness expansion system developed by the Royal Family of Java, Indonesia dating back hundreds of years.  Using Vibravision® they were able to fight opposing forces at night using Vibravision to ‘see’ in the dark.  Until recently, MP was known only by the Royal Family members.

In 1963, Mr. Saring Hadipoernomo, Mas (Mr.) Budi, and Mas (Mr.) Pung released MP to the Indonesian people.  On January 1st, 2000, Nate and Mike Zeleznick became the first-ever officially recognized American MP members and began training people in the martial arts and energy aspects of MP on January 3rd, 2001.

In 2013, after over a decade of challenges and obstacles to successfully develop the Vibravision® program, Mike decided to give up everything and do what was necessary to keep their promise to the Royal Family and bring Vibravision® to the world. He relocated to Indonesia and began living and training directly with the Royal Family and the best Vibravision® trainers in the world in order to learn everything about the Vibravision® technique. Armed with this comprehensive knowledge, MP USA Inc. launched its first pilot program in November of 2014 and now we can all ‘see’ the results!

The History of Vibravision in America


Five Merpati Putih (MP) members began training in Vibravision in East Jakarta with Mas Budi Santoso Hadipoernomo (known simply as Mas Budi), one of two 11th-Generation royal heirs to the MP knowledge.


The first blind people (around ten of them) began training in Jakarta by Mas Budi. Every day he picked every student up, trained them, and drove them back home. He was also developing Vibravision training in Yogkyakarta (central Java) and Malang (East Java).


Twenty-five of the Kopassus – Indonesia's most elite commando paratroopers – began training in Vibravision with Mas Budi. Since then, it has become a standard practice for certain Kopassus teams.


Nate Zeleznick contacted the Yayasan Saring Hadipoernomo (Saring Hadipoernomo Foundation) in Jakarta about the usefulness of Vibravision in training blind people. He became the foundation's contact in America and began arranging the first-ever demonstration of Vibravision in the U in America.


Nate and Mike Zeleznick arranged for several Vibravision specialists and trainers (2 of whom were blind) to come to Utah with Mas Haryadi Sulaiman, a Vibravision specialist and MP trainer for both the Kopassus and Indonesian Army. The team demonstrated Vibravision for the Utah Schools for the Deaf and the Blind and gave another demonstration at Weber State University, which was covered by Channel 4, Channel 5, and Channel 13. Nate traveled to Washington D.C. with the Vibravision team to give a demonstration in the Indonesian Embassy for Indonesian Ambassador Dorodjatun, the Embassy staff, and the public. After the demonstration team returned to Indonesia, Nate and Mike began training in Utah as the first-ever non-Indonesians to lean MP. Dr. Heru Hendarto, MD – a former MP trainer of the Indonesian Special Forces – was charged with their training.

August, 1999

After an accelerated and intensive three-month training regimen, Nate and Mike were tested and became the first officially recognized American MP members on January 1, 2000. They continued their relentless training schedule through spring and summer.

December, 1999

Nate and Mike arranged to have the two 11th-generation royal heirs to MP and a team of Vibravision practitioners (only one of whom was blind) to come to Utah. They were tested and initiated as MP trainers and were given permission to open MP training to westerners. A demonstration was held for some of the top Ophthalmologists in the country at the Moran Eye Center at the U of U hospital in Salt Lake City. They monitored the Vibravision practitioners closely and were very impressed.

September, 2000

Mas Haryadi Sulaiman returned and, along with Dr. Hendarto, tested Nate and Mike for their next rank. They then spent several days learning Mas Haryadi's Vibravision Curriculum.


Nate, Mike, and 13 students traveled to Indonesia. Nate and Mike were tested in Yogkyakarta, Central Java, and both attained Senior Trainer rank. The MP-USA team traveled throughout Indonesia demonstrating, training, and sight-seeing. They visited a Merpati Pituh training center for blind people and were treated to Vibravision demonstrations which included shooting guns at targets, avoiding obstacles, identifying colors. Mike almost lost a game of pool against a blindfolded practitioner and one member demonstrated Vibravision behind his back.

May, 2005

Nate and Mike returned to Indonesia to test for the next rank. They took another team of American Merpati Pituh members with them. The team traveled, demonstrated, and trained, and then Mike and the team returned home.

February, 2007

After 57 straight days renovating their new school location in Ogden, Utah, Mike traveled to Jakarta and lived with the last remaining 11th-generation royal heir to MP, Mas Pung, for 6 months. He lived in Jakarta but traveled all over the country learning from Mas Pung, the two 12th-Generation heirs, Nehemia Budi Setyawan (Mas Hemi) and Amos Priyono Tri Nugroho (Mas Amos), and the most elite Vibravision trainers in the MP system. After compiling the VV training methods of these masters, he combined the most effective exercises and training methods into the VV curriculum used at MP-USA.
