Ed D’Urso is the founder of and main instructor at The Fire Mountain School of Centered Martial Arts in Nyack, NY, which offers traditional Chinese martial arts and Resilience Training, including t’ai chi, kung fu and “conscious fighting” methods.
The program on: Resilience Training (accessible to anyone one regardless of age, level of injury, or prior training) is designed to strengthen the fasciae, the webs of connective tissue under the skin that bind the muscles to the skeletal system and are critical to generating and conducting electrical and mechanical energy throughout the body.
The health of our fasciae helps determine how flexible, supple and energized we are. Strength is generated by muscles, but the fasciae are the source of a deeper, more lasting power. In this workshop with a highly experienced martial arts teacher and fitness expert we will learn how to work with the fascia system to: build our flexibility, range of motion and power; boost qi flow through our energy channels; diminish aches and pains; recover much more quickly from injuries; go beyond our limits; and increase our mental as well as physical fortitude.
