I analyse relevant aspects of movement and integrate them into one holistic picture.
My approach is to synergise knowledge from Martial Arts, Dance, Physiotherapy, and Chi Kung with my personal experience…

My story…

 

Systema

After a bit of hesitating and observing, I started learning Systema. This system teaches how to cope with stress, calm down, and deal with pain & shock. To be smooth & relaxed. I am proud to be a certified instructor by Master Vladimir Vasiliev. I had the privilege of learning also from Master Mikhail Rybko,

Cossack’s tradition

Modern Systema comes from Cossack tradition, which saved old Slavic culture and philosophy. The root of Slavic culture (including fighting & dance) comes from Vedic culture. I am lucky that I could learn Cossack culture from masters such as Georgy Funtikov (Егор Гамаюн), Sergey Makarov, Vladimir Kurovskij and A.V. Černikov.

 

Chi Kung

I also study a functional Chi Kung / Qigong: Zhang Xin Dao – I Liq Chuan (Martial Arts of Awareness) from GM Sam Chin and master Joshua Craig.

Grand Master Sam Chin is teaching Tibi I Liq Chuan – Zhang Xin Dao (functional Chi Kung).

Dance

I love Dancing! I grew up in hip-hop and break dance.
Since I tried Bruno Caverna’s Play-fight, I enjoy expressing myself at Contact Improvisation.
If there’s any chance, I love dancing in clubs; however, I often dance at home… And, of course, I dance when I practice Martial Arts.
Every movement is done smoothly and elegantly, called ‘dance’.

Other Martial Arts

I’ve always been active- gymnastics, athletics, swimming, cycling, skiing, football, tennis, basketball, & many others.
When I was 12, I fell in love with Martial Arts (MA) and found Goju Riu Karate.

I then started to train in kickboxing, classic Boxing and Thai boxing.
As part of the Slovakian National Kickboxing Team, in 2000, I became the Slovakian Kickboxing champion.
I was also selected for the Slovakian National Karate Team, and in 2002, I was the Karate Champion.

Then I found Ip Man Leung Ting  Wing Tsun Kung Fu, and during my first contact with a master, I realised that hardness doesn’t work with liquid (internal systems).
I experienced that he was going through my defences like a knife through butter, and after the last 16 years of hard training, I couldn’t ignore this fact. As easily as water behaves when it encounters something hard, it flows around it.
I became a student of Sifu Richard Kapalko and other masters in Wing Tsun: Dai-Sifu Oliver Konig & GM Prof. Keith R. Kernspecht.
In 2005, I moved to the UK and continued to study Wing Tsun with the highly experienced Master Andrew Cameron.

To experience different MA, I have also trained in Escrima, Aikido, Taekwondo, BJJ, Judo, and Ju-Jitsu.

My strategy is to learn with an open mind, learning skills from every source of MA. Aiming for permanent progress tomorrow, I want to be better than today.

 

Massage & Physiotherapy

The desire to make my body more efficient means I am a regular on the massage couch as a patient. After years, I took a course and became a professional massage therapist.

However, just a course didn’t make me a good massage therapist; I continue to learn and now have 15 years of practice and experience…

I love this job for freeing people from pain and tension.

It’s also allowed me to develop my feelings and helped me to understand the human body from different perspectives.

 

The system is also based on modern progressive physiology developed by scientific methods.

 

A perfect exploration of our movements brought me to a Tom Myers book, Anatomy Trains. This book massively changed my perception of our movements. It helped me to see the whole human body much more holistically. Instead of separated muscles, I see the united body with a myofascial network.
Therefore, I attended a course, ‘Anatomy Trains in Motion’.

For us, movers are essential to understanding how the human body – tensegrity works in motion, how moving patterns affect your body and vice versa – and how any imbalance of your body affects your movements.

The new perception of the body helped me to better understand body mechanics as a martial artist & a dancer. It’s also helping me diagnose the problems of my massage therapy patients.

 

Pravilo

I am also a therapist/instructor at a Slavic tool called a Pravilo. It would mean ‘Corrector’ or ‘Adjuster’ translated into English.
Pravilo holistically stretches all myofascial tracks across your body like nothing else!
Pravilo also strengthens us in unique ways
The Pravilo pulls from every corner equally, so if you have an imbalance in your body, it will naturally balance your body.
Our bodies naturally shrink and crystalise. The Pravilo slow this process down or even reverses it. It expands you. It opens our bodies and increases the flow of Jang energy.

 

 

Conflict management

I’ve developed a practical understanding of conflict management situations as I have worked as a doorman for over 18 years. I occasionally work as a doorman to ensure my techniques have real-world applicability.

True Colour in the Dark Room

Twelve days of Dark Room Therapy has been the most fantastic experience of my life.
It has shown me a reason to be better.
It has shown me a reason not to drink alcohol, not eat meat anymore, walk barefoot, etc.
It has initiated a positive domino effect that has redirected my life in a much better direction…

 

 

The synergy of knowledge and experience

I studied Védic culture from the master Jan Kozak (philosopher and translator from Sanskrit).

Receiving Dharma, especially from the master Lumir Laska.

Next, I study the Wim Hof method, classic Yoga, Pilates, Feldenkrais, etc.

With an open mind, I study various concepts by brainstorming with specialists…

The analysis of all aspects results in that principles make one consistent holistic picture of our movement and our life.

After Petr Fridrich’s ‘Laughing Yoga’, I am smiling nonstop and much more!
