You're Frozen
when your heart's not open 😉

No really, how much does your torso actually move - while you sit or walk? Don't you too notice plenty of folks walking like sticks? With just their arms and legs moving and the upper body stiff. Merely tilting from side to side?

A friend of mine, Peter Appel of @movingness_com recently brougt up this valid observation.

Under the title 'Opening the Frozen torso' he shares a gentle movement practice he also presented in the @theembodimentconference

You can find it if you copy the following link https://portal.theembodimentconference.org/sessions/opening-the-frozen-torso-f53ffc

The above, in turn, is my variant of offering two plates of pizza - to you, the goddess and all demons. 😆 And yeah if you trace those plates you get in some neuro-nourishing eye moves and further activate your vagus into the bargain.

Thank you, @tinarehm_pt for the great afternoon and vid. 😚

What do you do and enjoy to limber up that torso?

Boxing is narsty
unless you defend well

Why yes I really hate the kind of headaches you get from being hit in the face.

First, being hit in the face hurts. Second, it's embarrassing. Third, it made me angry and panicky so I tended to lash out, drop my cover and get hit.

All of which can easily lead to bad blood, blue eyes and loss of brain cells.

Long take short: You're much better off with a good cover.

To automate yours, drill the basics.
Link them to partner combos.
Then, test in gentle Slomo sparring and make it a game to come up with ever new defensive moves.

If there's responses you lack, put them into a new combo and drill.

That way you safely widen your toolkit and can enjoy sparring. Without losing your brain or starting feuds. 😄

Which are your fav defensive moves or combos? Which other roughhousing variations do you enjoy? Please describe or tag me where you share.

How to progress at scary moves?
Practice falling!

It helps stay intact.
Develop motor control.
And build confidence.
So we dare more.
Which speeds progress.
And allows us to slip in style. 😆

So what is the best season to practice falling? 🍁

Haha, yes!

Fall is excellent 'cause we tend to have shirts on and the ground isn't that soggy yet.

Really tho, the very best time is Now.

So if you, like me, are scared of a number of moves - join in!

Relax. Roll. Practice falling in any context you can think of.

I don't like online challenges but would love seeing you tumble.

So please tag me (@bemonkeyfit) when you share and use the hashtag #MonkeyFall

Let's roll!

PS.: If you'd like an ace rolling tutorial, check out @amosrendao #parkourukemi - the Art of falling @parkouredu 🌊 Those rolls are concrete tested!
