INTERESTED IN BASEWORKS?

Experience Baseworks Practice in an event/ workshop or a daily practice immersion in Tokyo, Japan.

The Baseworks approach is structured on concepts of adaptability, cyclicity, and non-linear/modular learning.

To build any skill, regularity and consistency of practice are vitally important.

As we age, it becomes increasingly harder to change our already established habits and movement patterns.

Anyone who has seriously tried to learn something deeply knows that on occasion you are faced with obstacles such as boredom, exhaustion, injury, inability to create a structure for learning, lack of foundation, reaching a plateau…..etc…

To address these obstacles we have designed an ongoing Baseworks Modular Practice Immersion which can be currently experienced all year round in Tokyo, Japan.

BASEWORKS MODULAR PRACTICE IMMERSION

MODULARITY

Practice structured into 4 modules with different physical perquisites and learning objectives.

REGULARITY

Public practice sessions 7 days a week from 7 am to 10 pm, making it possible to mix and match practice to compliment other lifestyle endeavors/commitments.

CONSISTENCY

All modules taught in the same teaching methodology, ensuring a consistent learning experience.

CYCLICITY

Since the results of learning in one module directly correspond to the progress in other modules, we encourage cycling the practice sessions to optimize the experience.

NON-LINEARITY

The practice of other disciplines is encouraged.

ADAPTABILITY

Shuffling the modules while modifying intensity to support individual condition supports daily practice without the risk of over-training and injury.

MODULES

FOUNDATION

 

  • Increase awareness
  • Build prerequisites in strength, flexibility, concentration, relaxation, and motor control
  • Learn basic movement dynamics
  • Understand fundamental structural limitations

ELEMENTS

 

  • Develop new movement skills
  • Focus on the upper body and distributed activation
  • Adapt to different positions in gravity

STRATEGY

 

  • Build connecting strategies
  • Work with momentum and center of gravity transfer
  • Increase range of motion
  • Understand symmetry from the unilateral perspective

INTEGRATE

 

  • Challenge structural and perceptual limitations
  • Modify practice intensity and moderate stress levels
  • Refine precision, and fluidity of motion
  • Switch off conceptual thinking

DAILY PRACTICE IMMERSION IN TOKYO

ARCHIVE

 

Since 2000, the Baseworks Teaching Methodology has been utilized across different disciplines of practice.

The Baseworks Modular Practice Immersion was launched in Tokyo in 2012, and has since been offered in various locations globally.

The ongoing Baseworks Modular Practice Immersion aims to offer a substantial amount of sessions per week for practitioners to gain a consolidated experience.

Each session is between 60 to 120 minutes.

A session could be considered a public class.

Yet, session, better describes the reciprocal interaction between the teacher and the student, as described in the Baseworks Teaching Methodology.

The diagrams below show the Tokyo weekly program each year with a breakdown by the number of sessions for each module.
