When thinking about training, either for health and well-being or for self-defence, the concepts of method and pedagogy becomes essential points.
It is from this viewpoint that we refer to a "Munndialarts Method".
This method is never stagnant but evolves and improves itself in time, through experiences, meetings and constant research. However it follows a clear vision and path of what constitute a beneficial practice for our health.
We aspire to offer our students the possibility to draw within a small bucket of diversified but carefully chosen coherent disciplines, that can potentially help for every student unique personal growth.
For us, the most important thing for an efficient method is to help the individual in reaching his goals regarding both his health and self-defence needs.
Our practice and teaching are based on a training method that follows a common thread linking all the different disciplines that we study, independently of their origin and unique characteristics.
This manifest itself concretely within the acknowledgement that every single one of these disciplines are unique in their external technics, strategies and the emphasis they place on a specific way of using the body.
However, within the frame of a coherent and efficient method, it is essential that this diversity takes place following a real common thread.
Although the disciplines that constitutes or curriculum are different and unique externally, they all converge toward a crucial vision of the body as stated by Philippe Munn:
The most important aspects of our method of practice lies in the consistency in the body sensations that are applied in a transparent and fluid fashion within each of the different disciplines that we practice.
The guiding principle at the core of our method is in the development of a strong health throughout all the different phases of our life.
When we talk about the strengthening of health, the first guiding principle to be respected is that no aspects of our training must be harmful to our body. On the contrary they must all contribute positively to the reinforcement of our global health.
regarding the choices made in our techniques there is no place for anything that would prematurely wear out our articulations or abuse the wonderful system that is our body.
We have the opportunity in our times to be able to draw from thousand of years of human experiences and wisdom in the best ways in taking care of our bodies and mind, and help us to prevent as much a possible the occurence sickness.
The practice of health exercices and self-defence is for us an activity for the long run, where efficiency manifest itself throughout all of our life.
