Fighting Monkey Practice
“Anatomy of Injury”

“Anatomy of Injury” teaches you how to take responsibility for your own development and healing practices.

Anatomy of Injury refers to your immunity and your understanding of the landscape of your own body. It helps you build an intelligent practice that can support you before, during and after any training or competition.


Past injuries can tell you a lot about your movement but most of all about your lifestyle and quality of interaction and relations you create and cultivate. Anatomy of Injury helps you trace the hidden, invisible stressors that deteriorate your health and quality of life.

We will be working with un-conventional training to help you evaluate your posture, your overall coordination and mobility of your joints in relation to your whole structure.

We will be working on:

  • how to coordinate the 3 bodyweight centres in relation to your feet.
  • how to practice to build the “athletic leg” 
  • how to use the whole system to regain lost balance

We will be discussing and examining the ageing process and its crucial effects on the body especially how our feet, knees and hips get old and what we can do about it.

We will be also examining:

  • why mobility, adaptability and softness are the most important qualities for building strength. 
  • how softness, slowness and stillness in practice create speed and neurological efficiency.
  • how to harness our energy and how to overcome fatigue
  • how to develop power and strength through motion and moving in space without performing isolated exercises but through using effectively our entire structure
  • why the range of motion of joints tells us nothing about the quality of movement.
  • how to get rid of bad habits and relearn to move creating more potential and kinetic energy
  • what are the alternatives to conventional training systems that promote artificial systematic rules
  • what it means to be coordinated, mobile and functionally open while experiencing pressure and stress.

You will discover with us what it means to observe and be sensitive enough to predict your future injuries, by seeing your present movement and behavioral patterns.

It is necessary to shake good ideas in order to find better ones!
