Conference 2008 Workshop
Open To: Public
Moshe Feldenkrais was the first non-Japanese person to earn a black belt in Judo and was the author of several books on Judo and self-defense. His interest, training and expertise in these areas had a profound influence on the development of the Feldenkrais Method. We will use the movement lessons created by Dr. Feldenkrais to explore the martial arts underpinnings of the Feldenkrais Method, and experience and analyze self-defense techiniques as they arise, helping us to understand the effectiveness of the Feldenkrais Method from the point of view of survival. This workshop will give you a direct experience of how the martial arts can be informed by the unique work of Dr. Feldenkrais.
Moti Nativ(1994)is a Feldenkrais practitioner and has been teaching martial arts since 1978, is proficient in Budo-taijutsu(Japanese ancient fighting art), Judo and Krav Maga(military combat system).
