Fighting Monkey goes beyond exercise and ‘fitness’. It’s about problem solving, a creative act. Playing the games which expand your knowledge of your structure, architecture and function. You learn to recognize poor motor skills and therefore factors detrimental to performance and possible causes of injury. You learn to study motion as neurological adaptation to environment rather than set patterns /drills.
Fighting Monkey and the Feldenkrais Method both invite you to start where you are, investigate thoroughly where exactly that is, and play with possibilities for expanding your boundaries.
It doesn’t matter what your movement background may be. Each participant (athlete, dancer, Feldenkrais practitioner, adult human) playing the games will find their own movement solutions / responses to any given task. This will re-enforce their own development and understanding of who they are, what they want, and where they wish to go, the tools they wish to sharpen and develop.
But you don’t need any experience at all. Just curiosity and willingness to play.
Playing the games develops not only your physical capacities, but also your internal/mental capacities. To negotiate the ever-changing scenarios in which you struggle—and partners with whom you play—you will learn to tune into whatever you are facing, to sharpen your evaluation, perception, observation, movement co-ordination skills.
Co-founder of Fighting Monkey, Jozef teaches workshops around the world. He is also a choreographer and dancer. Learn more on his website, Rootless Root.
The inaugural event for Dallas Movement Lab, a new space for whole body movement in Tyler Station.
Note: For all workshops, please be comfortable sitting and lying on the floor, on your back, side or stomach.
Contact Angela if you are recovering from injury to be sure you’ll enjoy the experience.
