Feldenkrais and Martial Arts

Martial artists from all combat disciplines all over the world have found that the slow, gentle movements of the Feldenkrais Method help enhance awareness and improve reflexes, necessary attributes for these ancient practices. Many Feldenkrais teachers practice various martial arts disciplines – from Ninjitsu to Tai Chi, especially Aikido and Ukemi.

Much has been written about this improved awareness, including a book by Moshe Feldenkrais entitled Higher Judo. Essays can be found in several martial arts publications, as well as in consumer magazines.
