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.
