Sequencing of Movement
Patterns of Total Body Connectivity (PTBC) explain how the body is organized/connected, but how does movement spread and propagate through the body? How do we transition from one body shape to the next? In other words, how do we sequence movements and how can we teach this to small kids up to adults?
Video Book – Movement Sequences
Here are some examples of movement sequences, that we can teach to the players as an exercise. The trainer looks at these analytically.
Opening and closing the body
Exploring the first 3 PTBC: Breath, Core/Distal and Spinal connection.
Going from low to medium level in space.
To explore the initiation of the movement from the pelvis. Sequencing from the center of the body.
Changing level in space
PTBC: Homologous pattern appears.
Lower body Homologous and Homolateral pattern
PTBC: Lower body Homologous and Homolateral pattern appears. We took attack as an example.
Lower body Homolateral pattern
PTBC: Lower body Homolateral pattern. We took defense and block foot work as an example.
