“The Movement Architect Certification (CMA) is the synthesis of experience acquired from different teaching (manual therapy, somatic approaches, functional training in the gym, martial arts, dance, contact improvisation, gymnastics, circus, parkour, sensorimotor approaches, to name a few) as well as my personal experience of managing and understanding chronic back pain over the past 15 years.
By no means do I claim to have absolute science, but I feed 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 limited time (Memento Mori) on Earth, so we are always looking to make efficient choices, which will save us time; isn't that the point behind taking a course with someone who has a different experience and perspective than ours? The shared experience ultimately saves us time on what would have potentially taken us years to discover on our own.
So we are progressing faster.
We are moving forward.
And we share our experience with others so that, in turn, they can also grow the pool of knowledge and share it with the people around them. This is the theory of the infinite game!
My teaching is very philosophical because too often I received unsatisfactory answers, answers which boiled down to "this is how you should do because it is always how we have it. do". I was the bother of the group then, constantly asking why. On the other hand, philosophy makes us seek the meaning, the direction of the teachings: "Does all this make sense in 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 unnecessary.
So the CMA is my attempt to put some meaning into an area of knowledge, that in my personal experience, had lost all interest and became a big nonsense. I try to share my touch of organization and understanding in order to inspire others to do the same. "
The certification is set up as a starting point for practice and learning for those who venture into it. Many of the exercise families are presented in their simple and, sometimes, intermediate form. The goal behind all of this is to maintain accessibility; no one wins with training that only teaches 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 their skills according to their specific field of practice.
At the time of this writing, there are 5 certification modules which will be presented in the following order:
- The vocabulary of movement
- Mastering of 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 knowledge from the previous module, so it is interesting to follow the full curriculum to have a good understanding of the different exercises and also to learn how to use them well in a development plan.
Each exercise responds to a need and a specific stage in the developmental scheme!
Who is it for?
This certification is for coaches and therapists who are looking for additional tools to help with their client management. We can well say that several exercises of Module 1 can effectively serve as "diagnostic" tools, tools for detecting immaturities of movement that may go under the radar during standard assessment routines. Testing the client in his position of dysfunction 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 in competence and adaptability, secondly, we can reach a point where certain dysfunctions have no other choice than to to surface.
“Impose 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 specifically addressed.
Versatile, this certification can also be used for personal purposes by athletes who want to acquire different tools to improve their performance within their athletic development. Charles introduces concepts of research, exploration and creativity that make the content interesting for all those who are looking for an understanding and mastery of skills that allow easy adaptation to different environments - skills that 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 has possibly never considered before! Charles often presents the world of movement as a language to learn: we have to start with the alphabet, the different word families, the syntax, the spelling, the simple sentences, the complex sentences, the improvised conversations, the different subjects of conversation, etc.
In terms of movement, it follows the same logic: an improvised conversation cannot go beyond 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 lacking in the practitioner's experience.
The idea behind the certification is therefore to acquire a base of movements that will allow the expansion of the practice in a sustainable way. Preserving the body is a primary value of our teaching and is closely linked to Charles' personal practice. Who would like to be able to do the activities they love for a long time, and not switch practices each time they are limited by their own learning or by an injury?
All that being said, fully mastering this certification is going to take time and practice! Nothing worthwhile is easy to achieve! "Several exercises can continue to teach us even after 12 years of practice (Charles winks here to his kettlebell practice which has changed after so many years of practice. We must therefore give ourselves the time to integrate, “In-corporating” the exercises, soaking up their teaching and then distributing 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, discuss, ask questions and possibly participate in practical courses to have direct feedback on learning. Nothing can replace learning from a face-to-face experience, which is why theory is offered online and hands-on workshops are added into the full curriculum!
