L’approccio di Tom all’acrobatica si sviluppa a partire dalla necessità di ricerca di libertà nel movimento. L’obiettivo principale è quello di trovare una qualità di movimento che supporti sia azioni semplici come camminare o correre, che elementi di acrobatica, senza differenze a livello di sforzo o usura muscolare. Perciò Tom ricerca alti livelli di consapevolezza e precisione che consentono al corpo di reagire rapidamente ai cambiamenti posturali mantenendo una fluidità di movimento ed evitando tensioni superflue.

Due to the incredible number of participation requests for Tom’s workshop 11-13th janury, we decided to organize two days more with him about Zen Acrobatic.

Tom’s approach for acrobatics training has developed from the urge to look for freedom in movement.
The main goal is to find a movement quality that supports simple actions like walking and running, as well as acrobatic feats without a difference in effort or muscular usage.
In order to do this, Tom searches for high levels of awareness and
precision so the body can react quickly to the changes in skeletal stress, and to maintain flow without unnecessary tension.
In classical acrobatic disciplines – Preparation, Climax and Landing are being treated as completely different aspects while usually one is more important than the other.
In “Zen Acrobatics” the practitioner aspires to transform all 3 stages into one motion that can ultimately connect to any other type of movement.
Sounds of take-offs and landings, Placement of Eye-Focus and Optimal breath for each element are all being covered aside from the Anatomical Instructions and Basic Conditioning.
The acrobatic training allows the mover to tune into a “mind-quality” which is usually present only in Extreme Sports or Full – Contact Sports.
The mover becomes animalistic and functional, and while attempting complicated feats he turns on “survival instincts” which allows him to reflect on his movement from an entirely different point of view.
