Fighting Monkey Open Workshop, Ljubljana (Slovenia)

Sign-up through the website of Fighting Monkey:  https://bit.ly/2GAHKL6

Which games do you play to stay young?

It is a seminar that serves as a basic platform for further study of the Fighting Monkey Research. We will give you an overall introduction to the qualities and ideas that we have developed over the last 15 years of our F.M. research. It is for dancers, movers, martial artists and people who are interested in human development. 

You will experience mainly “movement situations”. Irregular training methods to provoke and increase the adaptive value of your behavioral traits and strategic planning. We will work on complex and most of the time improved structures to improve your movement qualities and increase your creative variability. We will help you to understand the underlying principles of human motion and how stress and pressure affects our perception, behaviour and actions and how creatively adaptive you are in complex situations. 

Foster improvisation, imagination and creativity.

The above are vital to problem solving.

Which is vital to adaptability, longevity and sustainability.

Play games.

Expose yourself to difficulties.

450' Reheat

450' Reheat

450' Reheat is a one day event based on the structure we use at our weekend Reheats.

We meet from morning to evening, 450 minutes, to practice situations in movement and stillness through which we try to discover together the principle qualities of our physiology and its interconnection with our thinking, emotion and memory.

The unpredictable training environment will serve as a simulation that allow you to check how you are developing, especially in cooperation and communication with others.

We have a meeting to look behind and explore the not-so-obvious elements that are often overlooked in contemporary movement culture.

450' Reheat Structure

We initiate the day with a morning practice of rhythmically opening and preparing the body and observing our internal state physically and mentally before we start our training.

Afterwards we will experience movement situations that test and develop behavioural flexibility. Through self-observation we discover how we cope with different contexts, tasks and stressors.

During this weekend we will present different movement situations and tools developed by Fighting Monkey Practice, such as:

  • Movement games with partners and undefined tools that reflect the idea "as in games, as in life”
  • Lengthening, strengthening, sensitivity with wooden Dragon Pearls 
  • Whole-body interconnection: how well do our joints communicate within our individual proportion
  • Complex coordinations that demand expansive motion of limbs that expose individual learning behaviour
  • Zero situations that serve as observational stillness practice 

Further we will explore clay as a training and creative tool to discover how our imaginative and physiological development translates to manipulation and sculpting of different texture and structures.

Last but not least, on this event, we welcome guest teacher Abdel who will present "Wrestle To Heal" and will ask us to research through a variety of challenges and collaborative obstacles what we experience when we change the intention behind jiu jitsu practice. How can we train the purpose and the qualities we want to develop in our life through the discipline of body to body practice.

Inspire by Fighting Monkey with Bart Adins, Geneve (Switserland)

This workshop is intended to feed our acroyoga practice with the discovery and exploration of the Fighting Monkey's movement !

In this workshop you will be introduced to movement situations based on the ideas and principles behind Fighting Monkey Practice.

Unpredictable training situations serve as simulations that allow you to check how you are developing, especially in cooperation and communication with others.

  • How is your movement quality affected under a diversity of stressors?
  • How do you behave under different dynamics?
  • Can you de-construct the problem and see possibilities despite the constraints?
  • How is your creativity influenced by changes in your environment?
  • Do old memories deprive you of new learning?
  • What is your reaction when not everything goes as expected?

Everything is always changing and somehow we see that movement practice does not reflect or prepare us for a reality of constant change and unpredictability. How can we make our practice more in line with the complexity of daily life and challenges?

During this weekend we will present different movement games and tools, such as :

  •  Movement games with partners and undefined tools that reflect the idea "as in games, as in life”
  • Whole-body coordination and collaboration of all joints
  • Complex coordinations that demand expansive motion of limbs that expose individual learning behaviour
  • Zero situations that serve as observational stillness practice

The workshop is recommended for movers, athletes, performers and everybody who is interested in human development.
