I am a professional instructor of martial arts with decades of experience and a creator of program Dancefight.
I could run for your school a workshop or a regular after school class. I have a two programs which could be interesting for you:1. Systema is a non-violent, liquid martial arts system based on being relaxed and flowing. It encourages sensitivity and deep understanding of body-mechanics rather than a ‘hard’ approach. I focus on conflict management and especially stress control which can be helpful in a learning environment. The children tend to gain in self-confidence and fitness which tends to lead to other learning benefits and respect.
2. Dancefight synergizes two ancient arts of movement: Dance and Martial Arts. It focus’ on the build up a responsive vital body, which is able to flow. It aims on developing our sensitivity to react on others and feel the flow of kinetic energy (bodywave). This wave naturally breaks down crystalised tissue and makes our bodies smoother and easier to move.
Keeping our bodies liquid out of our comfort zone improves your vitality, sharpens your mind and body.
Knowledge and experience of coping in stressful situations is helpful to pupils not just in conflict situations, but in playing sports, dancing, learning or any stressful situation.
