Psoas & the Art of Defense co-taught with Greg Soon
April 19 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
A strong and relaxed core is key in developing awareness, centeredness, and strength essential in all Martials Arts. This inner compass and root in movement and in life is called tanden in Japanese, and dantien in Chinese. It is our center of gravity and the home of the psoas. In the Japanese martial art Aikido, a strong center is not based on density but on flowing with our Ki (life energy).
Join us in a three-hour exploration incorporating fluid psoas explorations and martial arts exercises that come from Aikido and classical Jiu-jitsu to help channel movement from our center with a relaxed body and mind.
Greg Soon has been training in martial arts for over 30 years and has been an Aikido and self-defense instructor since 1997. He teaches the Martial Arts Lab at The Moving Body Resources in New York City.
