PHYSICAL TRAINING FOR CURIOUS MINDS
Rigidity is a common place where our structure tends to go. Our mission is to delay, limit or avoid this harshness. Movement is one of the characteristics of a living organism, therefore it is a cardinal point for healthy ageing.
Cultivating qualities such as elasticity and curiosity are priorities of my approach. An elastic structure allows movement, exploration and a return back home in a meaningful way.
A curious mind contributes to preserve the brain plasticity. Maintaining and developing a playful attitude seems to feed our neuroplasticity, therefore developing new connections. The deepest root of science is curiosity, so we purposefully embrace the question "what if..?".
BODY ELASTICITY AND BRAIN PLASTICITY
Like the instruments in an orchestra need to be perfectly timed and coordinated to create a great performance, so too the coordinated force production and timing of our muscles is crucial to execute any contextual movement pattern well. Therefore coordination, rhythm and movement connection must be addressed as well as kinetic potential and power exploration to strengthen the performance.
One of the tools I use with my students is the 9 Speedtool by FM. It is a distinctive and crucial tool of training. It highlights deficiency in fundamental patterns whose refinement are key points for timeless performance. It also offers a peculiar opportunity to improve striking and throwing capacity.
