What is Movement Based Training?
A systematic approach to mastering movement. It is an attempt to restore full functional movement capacity of the human body. All you need is some space (and preferably a cushioned floor).
Who Came Up With This Stuff?
Humans. And Creation. But the thinking behind it stemmed from developmental kinesiology — the development of natural human movement, from an immobile newborn to a walking/exploring toddler.
There are many bright individuals that have promoted this concept, but the big three currently dissecting and teaching it’s training approach are:
1. Dr. Andreo Spina,
2. Dewey Nielsen, and
3. Ido Portal
If you want to see how gracefully complicated and fluid movement can be, check out any one of their videos. (If you’re partial to beards and intriguing music, start with Dewey).
What Should I Try First To See If I Like It?
Though my personal preference is to perform them in this order, mix and match any way you choose. A fundamental element of movement training is experimentation. Feel free to shift and evolve.
