Learn the Skill of Movement

Whether you walk or run, dance or fight: movement should be fun, free and a joyous experience.

However, too many people get injured every year (around 80% of runners, for example) because of incorrect equipment and inadequate skill and strength.

The key for a long life of efficient movement involves reconnecting your brain and reconditioning your body. This is achieved by relearning the skill of locomotion by perfecting simple motor skill milestones and simultaneously, and gradually, building up adequate strength.

Rhythm

Rhythm

Correct rhythm, 3 steps per second (or 180 per minute), helps utilise your tendons and elastic recoil for more efficient movement. Shorter strides help you achieve natural cadence.

Relax

Relax

Perfecting good posture and correct rhythm will eventually lead to relaxed locomotion. A relaxed body uses a lot less energy as it runs and is the sign of a master in any sport.
