FRIDAY NIGHT - Movement Arts 6PM-8PM
Cameron Shayne is brown belt UNDER THE LEGENDARY RICKSON GRACIE and considered the father of mixed moment arts.
This class is designed for anyone pursing an intermediate to advanced level of athletic aptitude, increase their level of performance, and level of sustainability. Students will leave with an increased knowledge of breath control for on and off the mat, pre and post systems to prepare the body and mind, and a deep dive into movement techniques.
The Movement Arts BDK was codified and popularized by martial arts and yoga master Cameron Shayne beginning in 2001. Considered a science, art and philosophy which synchronizes classical yoga with martial arts, calisthenics, animal locomotion, and life science. This physically demanding stye reshaped classic yoga by integrating signature circular transitions and spinal waves with newly created postures.
During this workshop Cameron and Melayne will guide you through a flow of the Budokon Yoga Primary and 2nd Series, combining strong and circular sequence of asanas, martial arts transitions, zen meditation and restorative poses to increase your muscular strength, flexibility, concentration, movement, breath control, and the cultivation of pure witness state.
Our signature Yoga postures develop joint mobility, while the martial arts transitions cultivate muscular integrity. Both are complimented by the tensegrity and agility of animal locomotion, as taught to Cameron by Rickson and his teacher Orlando Cani.
8pm High percentage escapes, sweeps and submissions.
Participant open mat (no gi) w/ special guests Marcos Duarte (Subforce) & Chris Civello (Sakura).
SATURDAY WORKSHOP 1 - BDK HIPS MOBILITY & AGILITY: 10AM-12:30PM
Join us for a deep exploration of hip, spine and shoulder mobility with the father of mixed movement arts, and Budokon Yoga founder, Cameron Shayne. Gaining power from the core through the pelvic floor is the foundation for agile movement. In this workshop we will talk about the anatomy of movement in the hip joint and explore a variety of animal locomotion, martial arts, yogic transitions, and flexibility techniques that will change the way you move.
If you are looking to increase the power and effectiveness of your attacks and guard, then understanding how your hips and shoulders work together is essential in optimizing your performance and game.
