“The Movement Architect Certification (CMA) is the synthesis of experience acquired from different courses (manual therapy, somatic approaches, functional indoor training, martial arts, dance, contact improvisation, gymnastics, circus, parkour, sensorimotor approaches , to name just a few) as well as my personal experience of managing and understanding chronic back pain over the last 15 years.
I in no way claim to have absolute science, but I encourage critical thinking: understanding how it works allows us to better understand the validity of different modern techniques and thus make better choices.
We all have a limited time (Memento Mori) on Earth, so we always seek to make efficient choices, which will save us time; Isn’t that the goal behind taking a course with someone who has a different experience and point of view than us? The shared experience ultimately saves us time on what would have potentially taken us years to discover on our own.
So we progress more quickly.
We are moving forward.
And we share our experience with others so that they, in turn, can also grow the pool of knowledge and share it with people around them. This is infinite game theory!
My teaching is very philosophical because too often I received unsatisfactory answers, answers that boiled down to “this is how you have to do it because that’s always how we have it.” do". I was then the annoying one in the group, constantly asking why. On the other hand, philosophy makes us search for the meaning, the direction of the teachings: “Does all this make sense from an integral and integrative point of view?”
The meaning, the why, makes us ask the right questions and allows us to quickly filter out the superfluous and the useless.
The CMA is therefore my attempt to put some sense into a field of knowledge which, in my personal experience, had lost all interest by becoming a big nonsense. I try to share my touch of organization and understanding in order to inspire others to do the same. »
Certification is set up as a starting point for practice and learning for those who venture into it. Many families of exercises are presented in their simple and, sometimes, intermediate form. The goal behind this is to maintain accessibility; no one wins with training that only shows you how to do “party tricks” to impress on Instagram. Understanding the right progressions will help you make the optimal selection of exercises for you and your clients. There will therefore be, in the future, several possible extensions of specialization as the curriculum unfolds: this will allow everyone to improve according to their specific field of practice.
At the time of writing, there are 5 modules to the certification which will be presented in the following order:
- The vocabulary of movement
- Control tension
- Locomotion - the art of moving
- Extensions - the tools of choice
- Intensity, Balls and Play - partner work
Each module is created to use the concepts and learnings from the previous module, so it is interesting to follow the complete curriculum to have a good understanding of the different exercises and also to learn how to use them properly in a development plan.
Each exercise responds to a specific need and stage in the developmental pattern!
Who is it for?
This certification is aimed at coaches and therapists who are looking for additional tools to help their client care. We can well say that several exercises in Module 1 can actually serve as “diagnostic” tools, tools for detecting movement immaturities that may go under the radar during standard assessment routines. Testing the client in their dysfunctional position is a very interesting principle to keep in mind. Which brings us to the following modules: by increasing the intensity and complexity of the exercises, firstly, we gain competence and adaptability, secondly, we can reach a point where certain dysfunctions have no choice but to to surface. “Imposing a constraint to expose a restriction” is a mantra that Charles often repeats in face-to-face training. Once exposed, the restriction can easily be addressed in specific ways.
Versatile, this certification can also be used for personal purposes by athletes who want to acquire different tools to improve their performance within their sporting development. Charles presents concepts of research, exploration and creativity which makes the content interesting for all those who are looking for understanding and mastery of skills allowing them to easily adapt to different environments - skills which present a good transferability to other practices!
The expected results?
The practitioner who tackles the “Certified Movement Architect” program can expect to make movements that he or she may never have considered before! Charles often presents the world of movement as a language to learn: we must start with the alphabet, the different families of words, syntax, spelling, simple sentences, complex sentences, improvised conversations, the different subjects of conversation, etc.
At the level of movement, it follows the same logic: an improvised conversation will not be able to go further than what the vocabulary will allow us - in other words, it will be difficult to learn to do acrobatics if the notions of "synchronization and coordination” are missing from the practitioner's experience.
The idea behind certification is therefore to acquire a foundation of movements that will allow the expansion of the practice in a sustainable way. Preserving the body is a primordial value of our teaching and is closely linked to Charles’ personal practice. Who would like to be able to practice the activities they love for a long time, and not have to change their practice every time they are limited by their own learning or by an injury?
All of this being said, fully mastering this certification will take time and practice! Nothing worth having is easy to achieve! “Several exercises can continue to teach us even after 12 years of practice (Charles makes a nod here to his kettlebell practice which has changed after so many years of practice. We must therefore give ourselves the time to integrate , to “incorporate” the exercises, to immerse oneself in their teaching and then to share them again.”
Beyond the online learning format, there is also a community to allow us to connect with other enthusiasts of the movement and to share, exchange, ask questions and possibly participate in practical courses to get direct feedback on learning. Nothing can replace learning from an in-person experience, which is why theory is offered online and hands-on workshops are added!
