Jakub Zeman is a practitioner and educator from Czechia with a background in martial arts, dance and sports. Since 2015 he has been studying closely with Linda Kapetanea and Jozef Frucek within the Fighting Monkey. Movement and dance as the essential means of human communication, expression and development form the core of his research and teaching. As a Fighting Monkey teacher he is looking how to create a meaningful practice and practical philosophy that will be supporting us in our ever changing life circumstances.

Fighting Monkey practice

An overall introduction to the qualities and ideas that have been developed over the last 16 years of Fighting Monkey research. There are no restrictions or prerequisites, in terms of former experience and background. Anyone interested in human evolution is welcome.

You will experience mainly “movement situations” – irregular training methods to provoke and increase the adaptive value of your behavioral traits and strategic planning. We will work on complex and most of the time improvised structures to improve your movement qualities and increase your creative variability. We will help you to understand the underlying principles of human motion and how stress and pressure affects our perception, behavior and actions and how creatively adaptive you are in complex situations. Foster improvisation, imagination and creativity.
