Creativity through Pressure, Difficulty and Danger

For the past ten years, Jozef Frucek and Linda Kapetanea, as RootlessRoot, have been researching human movement through the development of the Fighting Monkey practice. They focus on the very principles that formulate human motion. They explore primitive and basic concepts, and their experience has proven that there are no ‘exercises’ that would be complex enough to prepare you for life. Open games, or movement situations, that involve partners, ever changing rules and specific context have much more to offer. This model occurs everywhere in nature.
