Parkour Movement Training
Instructor: Alex Schenker
MovNat Certified Natural Movement Master Trainer
This class is all about obstacle traversal for developing real-world physical competence. We focus on the skills of locomotion, including balancing, jumping, vaulting, ground movement, climbing, as well as other skills, to develop the practical freedom of movement innate to all human beings. Developing these latent abilities can be approached from the perspective of play, functional fitness, and/or with the mindset of evasion for self-protection.
Parkour and MovNat have a common ancestor; the French Naval officer, Georges Hebert's Methode Naturelle, which shaped what we know now as the modern day military obstacle course. Everything in the Parkour skillset is part of MovNat, but MovNat also includes lifting, carrying, swimming, and other skills that complete the full spectrum of human movement aptitudes. We approach these Parkour classes through the MovNat lens, which is adaptive and approachable for everyone.

Flexibility & Joint Strengthening
Instructor: Alex Schenker
Natural Movement Trainer
Licensed Shiatsu Therapist
FRC Mobility Specialist
Mobility is all about restoring the natural functionality of our bodies and unwinding the unnatural conditions we subject ourselves to in modern society. Each class involves joint mobilization exercises, Natural Movement re-calibration, self-Shiatsu, active stretching, structural realignment exercise, and a basic no-fluff breathing meditation practice. We look at balancing the body, relieving abnormal tension, preventing injury, improving functional flexibility, and structural alignment / integrity. The goal is that with regular classes you will learn how to develop and maintain your own independent practice tailored to your specific needs.
The Natural Movement element involves ground movement, balancing practice, safe-falling instruction, and a few key considerations to how we use our bodies in daily life situations. This class integrates elements of MovNat, Self-Shiatsu, Sotai (neuromuscular reeducation exercise) Ryutai Undo & Ukemi (martial conditioning), and Meridian Stretching.

Taijutsu Fundamentals Course
Instructor: Alex Schenker
Taijutsu Instructor, Natural Movement Trainer
In this course we will introduce, and deepen our ability in the basic principles and movements of Taijutsu. The program for this course includes combative skills such as striking and grappling, locomotive skills such as rolling and leaping, and physical conditioning such as stretching and strengthening.
Striking & kicking technique - basic foot & fist formations & application
Grappling - fundamental wrist joint controls
Kamae - basic combative postures
Rolling - forward & backward rolling for quick recovery from a fall
Leaping - forward, backward, sideways, upward, and downward leaping
Break-falls - safe falling techniques for falling prone, supine, or laterally to the side
Ryutai Undo (dragon-body method) - stretches & mobilizations for strengthening and limbering the body
Kokyuho (breathing exercise) - breathing & moving meditation
This course is meant to introduce new students to the foundational techniques of our practice; and for experienced practitioners to refine the underlying movements behind all of our techniques. There are a great number of advanced techniques in our art, and studying them all certainly increases the breadth of our knowledge, but honing in on the fundamentals is an opportunity to further develop the underpinning depth in our Taijutsu. This depth carries over to all techniques & related movements, and we can benefit at all skill levels from showing some attention to it's refinement. By the end of this course, you will have have learned some movements to practice on your own, a clear idea of what you need to work on to improve, and resources to review what we covered in the course.
Through not a requirement, it is recommended that people take this course before joining regular Taijutsu classes.
Cost: $100.00 ($80.00 for members of The Shinobi Village)
