Tim Cartmell 2017 seminar reviews

I’m back in Paris with a full notebook after a great weekend in Cologne, and it’s time to get some thoughts in order. I’ve only been involved in BJJ on a regular basis for a short time and I feel very aware of my lack of experience. However I’ve also trained with several teachers over […]

Daily choices part 2 – time travel…

After my last post I realised that I had not said or asked what I wanted to ask. What is on my mind is more of a hypothesis, or a potential principle for to build into a daily practice or even to build the practice around. How to explain… There is an idea from NLP called […]

Daily choices

There is something that has been on and off my mind for a while… When it comes to training I live in a trans-disciplinary culture. Most of the people I discuss and learn with have a more than passing knowledge of some combination of barbell training, remedial strength training, Olympic lifting, gymnastic strength training, Western […]

Book review – Possible Origins: A Cultural History of Chinese Martial Arts, Theater and Religion

I just finished Scott Park Phillips book Possible Origins which is about Scott’s research into the cultural origins of Chinese martial arts. I got my first sniff of the book when he publicised a lecture titled something like ‘Baguazhang, and it’s origins as the footsteps of an angry baby god.’ You can probably imagine if […]

Tom Weksler Movement Archery review

If I lean back in my train seat I can feel the edges of sensitivity on my shoulders.  It’s a sensitivity that has built up from many impacts with dance floors and gymnastic mats over a very fun weekend with Tom Weksler. Tom is a dancer and he teaches his approach to dance and acrobatics […]

Free trial class!

I get messages asking for a free trial class, and I get them fairly often. Actually not asking, assuming that I give free trial classes. Brasserie by Zoetnet But really,  why should it be?
