The Way of the Warrior ๑ Do-In


The Way of the Warrior ๑ Do-In
With Barbara Diederiks

"Martial Arts are ultimately self-knowledge. A punch or kick is not to knock-out the guy in front, but to knock-out of your ego, your fear or your hang-ups." - Bruce Lee

In The Way Of The Warrior, we will take a journey through various Martial Arts disciplines. Learning The Way Of The Warrior spirit may help you to contain your stress responses and teach you how to establish real focus and self-management.

With this series you will be able to see the benefits of:
- Breath
- Focus
- Movement

Connect to your inner warrior!

“The sword can be given, to fight is up to you”.

Do-In is a centuries-old Japanese system which means pulling and guiding Chi (Energy). The routes along which the Chi move, are called meridians. The practice of Do-In consists of a conscious flow of meridian stretching, meditation through movement, 'self-acupressure', breathing and meditative exercises. This will help with the reinforcement of the center of the body: the Hara (belly). 

Do-In is originally intended as a preventive system. Within the Eastern, holistic medicine world, the human body is understood as an open system that has a self-healing capacity and consists of a somatic and energetic body. They influence each other over and over again. Illness is seen as a result of a persistent imbalance in the functions of the somatic and energetic body. The emphasis is on preventing illness by striving for balance in body and mind, which Do-In can help with. 

In this class we will focus on the Ba Duan Yin, known as the eight Brocades. Ba Duan Yin is Kata, a solid form of 8 beautiful exercises which make you aware of your Hara, your center. This class is suitable for everyone, at every age.
