What is 
Fighting Monkey Rootlessroot™

Fighting Monkey is an applied practice
for human development through movement.
Fighting Monkey practice treats each and every person
as a unique universe interconnected with the environment
and within its own structure. 

The fundamental areas of FM practice concern:
- The development of Elastic Body with Plastic Brain through unorthodox games that aim to provoke creativity and ingenuity.

- The development of Coordination and Rythm in the whole body and their crucial role both in the small (cellular level) and in the big scale (relations, habits and goals) of the human life.

- The process of ageing and the ways we can preserve the health of our joints and of the whole musculoskeletal system so that we enhance and sustain our mobility through time

- The development of communication within ourselves as well as with our social and physical environment with aim to refine our learning strategies and to create stories which will inspire and feed our vigor for life

Move from possible to impossible 
nourishing youth and vigor for life.
We give you space to play, out of which
you can break and re-invent the world
and discover the unseen mystery of the universe which is infinitely greater
than the visible one.
To live a life worth living
