KNOWING OF BECOMING
To be competent in a task, a professional action, is to have the knowledge, the know-how to do and the know-how to be. The notion of competence is therefore intimately linked to a pre-determined action. It is measurable at the outcome and is expressed in terms of performance. Now, if planning determines the (theoretically ideal) conditions for implementing and carrying out an action, at the same time it impedes the potential of its future, which becomes pre-determined. So how do you escape from the predetermination? How to face the evolutions, the changes, the emergencies? How to deal with what is new (unknown) or what is unforeseen (but known). How to perform when there is no pre-determination or when predetermination plays the role of blinkers.
To do this, we must question and understand the mechanisms, dynamics and representations by which we act. Through a work of reflexivity and analysis, being able to build awareness and vigilance of oneself in action. Through experimentation, observation and adjustment to bring to light a new way of seeing and acting in order to adapt and welcome the unknown or the unexpected without stress. Built from existing competence, this supra-competence or transversal competence that is ‘knowing of becoming” will allow the development of new representations, new knowledge to switch from reactive mode to reflected action.
To actively switch from the loop to the spiral
Aikido is one of the best ways to cultivate the ‘knowing of becoming’ because aikido can only be achieved through spontaneity and permanent adaptation in action. Since an attack is unpredictable, unless you know the attack in advance, you cannot predict which technique to perform.
My practice in its principle does not focus on the realization of the technique but rather on the study of all the parameters which allow each technique to emerge. This is how I updated the fundamentals of the Aiki action which allows one to break down the movement step by step in order to understand the basics and to improve the sense of contact and connection specific to co- construction of a technique.
The Aiki action is therefore inspired by the theoretical principles of an ideal aikido movement and the posture that allows one to:
• Make a contact from which it is possible to understand the intention and direction of the partner without projection;
• Establish a connection allowing one to resonate in order to start a dialogue at the same energetic level;
• Manage exchanges through permanent adaptation so as to allow everyone to find their place in the movement in a harmonious manner
• Consider together the mutually beneficial conclusion of collaboration and generating the shared desire for more future ones.
Like anything of value, it takes effort and patience. Not everything should and can always go faster. A seed does not become a tree overnight. And it is not by pulling on a young shoot that you will cause it to give flowers more quickly.
is intended for those who want to break away from the search for control over external events rather than learning how to experience them and make the most of them. It's about learning to fully connect with oneself, in order to truly connect with others and situations
This work is organized in two phases. Through aikido-inspired bodywork, it is, by physical experimentation with the basic principles and movements of aikido, to experience the Aiki posture.
For that, it will be necessary to become aware of the physical and mental obstacles at the origin of the tensions and to unblock everything that prevents the natural and healthy posture that is at the heart off the Aiki action.
This first phase also makes it possible to highlight that the same blockages that are generally found in everyday life.
The second phase consists through reflexive, mental and written feedback of reflexive work and analogy with personal or professional relational situations. This phase is guided by the implementation of tools inspired by ethnomethodology and pedagogical trends in the sciences of education.
Our expertise and workshops are dedicated to individuals or groups and can be adapted to each specific problem found in most professional and personal environments.
You may bring any issues you want to work on. Together we will define the nature and modalities for your support.
You go on an adventure, in search of your wealth and your internal resources.
Aikido is the only martial art where two opponents agree to share a conflictual situation, the outcome of which must be positive for both. It means that it is no longer a matter of winning or of losing, but of considering within the conflict another way towards preservation and fulfillment.
Experiment with aikido in a fun way with colleagues to create and improve existing bonds. To reveal and discover each other in a new light.
Better work together:
Build connection and meaning to improve professional collaborative practices and relationships.
Aikido for all
For the uninitiated
An approach and a practice that could qualify as "dynamic meditation". At the same time a moment allowing one to refocus on oneself and on their body but also a moment to move and release the pressure.
For advanced aikidokas
Improve your sense of contact and connection to partners through the study and integration of all the parameters that allow a particular technique to emerge.
