This week, a spirited discussion with Pasquale Antonio, founder of Jiyu Movement and Head Instructor at Jersey City Systema.
Among the many topics we cover, we touch upon:
- the benefits and limitations of specialization in sports and movement
- the tangled relationship between speed, strength, and skill
- how he uses Systema to explore and teach a wide range of movement disciplines, including yoga, dance, gymnastics, calisthenics, parkour and contact improvisation
- why Systema is the free jazz of martial arts!
