This course focuses on the ground movement skills of MovNat Natural Movement, with a particular focus on efficient crawling technique, and building a smooth, fluid roll with control of direction, speed, and distance. We will look at the key elements of each skill, a number of exercise "stepping stones" that we can use to build those skills, common inefficiencies that we want to strive to eliminate, practical applications of each skill in daily life as well as in emergency situations, and the philosophy of how to approach skill training from a MovNat perspective.
