Jakub Zeman

Jakub is a practitioner and educator from Czech Republic with a background in martial arts, capoeira, 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 FM teacher he is looking how to create a meaningful practice and practical philosophy that will be supporting us in our ever changing life circumstances.


Games helped humans to evolve into smart and sociable creatures of endless ingenuity and imagination. Playing does not help you to learn anything in particular, rather it helps you to learn many things in a more flexible way keeping your brain always fresh, alert and young. Playing helps you to develop amazingly complex behaviors to respond to the complex world more intuitively.


The workshop is focused on fostering independence and ability to take responsibility for your own development. Through open games - movement situationswe will aim to provoke your creativity while being exposed to irregularity, difficulty and pressure in a changing, unpredictable environment.
