'The Fluid Body'

Developing movement & mental freedom

The mind is the key to effective and appropriate movement. With a focus on developing the 'flow state' and 'unconscious competence' the FluidBody module draws all of the previous training together with dedicated mind work and innovative movement puzzles.


About the Fluid Body

Fluidity and our ability to flow with the every changing requirements of the fight can mean the difference between success and failure. Far from being something that ‘just comes with time’, this attribute of the top performers is trainable. In the FluidBody training we focus on solo mind training and partner work, with innovative drills and concepts, to build the flexibility of mind that allows us to access 'flow state'.

The FluidBody is achieved when the practitioner can reliably enter Flow state and act appropriately in accordance with the changing conditions of the present moment. The FluidBody attribute is linked to the qualities of awareness, mindfulness, freedom, adaptability and flow.

Mental health is a key component in our ability to manage stressful situations. The FluidBody training will help you to recognise that 'change' is the normal state of things and be able to move through stressful environments without being mentally inhibited by them. This work is extremely useful for active competitors who struggle with pre-fight nerves or those who work in high stress environments.

They greatest moments in all combat sports come from the spontaneous exclusion of technique at exactly the right time. The skill of being completely in tune with the moment and the ever changing conditions of the fight is perhaps the greatest tool that the fighter or martial artist can develop. It doesn't matter how powerful the fighter is if they use that power at the wrong time. The FluidBody helps you to zoom in on the moment and take advantage of the conditions you find yourself in.

FluidBody training is all about 'change' and being 'in the moment'. The methods we employ to train this quality are wide and varied but are all concerned with either observing the mind or placing ourselves in highly changing circumstances. The various drills and techniques will enhance our ability to 'change' and 'flow. Another large focus is on helping the mind to be present in the moment through meditation and intent training methods, these are perhaps the hardest methods in the entire MartialBody system.

  • “Firstly, this stuff is WAY harder to do than it looks! But the payoffs are big. I have trained in the Heavy & Stable body modules and could immediately see and feel why they are relevant to me as an MMA athlete. My wrestling and take down defence has shot up and my hands are heavier than ever!”
  • "Coach always seemed to make the method specific to the individual he was coaching, even in the crowded room which was so refreshing. Coming from a Wing Chun Background, my requirement is different to that of the BJJ guys in attendance and this was skillfully handled meaning that every exercise was still extremely relevant to me. Great system, awesome coach.”
  • "Training with Coach in his BJJ classes I was always struck with his structure and weight. Now I know why! In one session I got a taste of how he is able to exert so much pressure for his size. HeavyBody work is a clear advantage for anyone into grappling, for throw defense and top pressure it really makes a difference. Definitely worth a look a this no nonsense work.”
  • "One month into some specific exercises from MartialBody and my niggling shoulder pains are gone. Simply exercisese that produce amazing results, Coach Chris specified a routine for me to follow, explained the science behind the methods and then it was down to me to train it. What a difference 30 days made, I literally feel like a different person, thank you coach.”
