Eximo Movement Workshop
We are very excited to host Ryan Viscont, founder of The Eximo Project (based in L.A.), here at MDC on Friday, April 10th from 6:30-8:30pm.

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:
Eximo introduces three fundamental stages of awareness, so the practitioner, has an understanding of how they are going to move. Those three stages are:

Upper gate: Movements from a standing position
Middle gate: Movements from a crouching position
Lower gate: Movements from a crawling position

How do we do it?
Eximo then addresses the body through three primary training protocols: Reactions Drills, Sequencing and Skill Building.

Reaction Drills: Drills designed to teach you how to “think” with the movements being practices.
Sequencing: A way of introducing new movements, by pairing two or more moves together in a choreographed set.
Skill Building: Where a bodyweight skill is introduced, and a variety of progressions are used to help the practitioner achieve it.
