Moti Nativ is a master teacher of martial artists and a certified Feldenkrais Method practitioner and involved in developing methodology for teaching Martial Arts.
He has researched the early years of Moshe Feldenkrais and his main project is about the synergy of the martial arts and the Feldenkrais Method, and presents his project in advanced workshops worldwide. This is his introduction for this article;
“In my article The Paradox Of Unstable Stability I will try to integrate some basic physical/mechanical facts on balance and stability. I will do my best to write simply and concisely. I will quote Moshe Feldenkrais' words on the subject, and his book Body & Mature Behavior (B&MB) will be my guideline. To this I will add from my personal experience, my insights as a researcher of these means and as a practical teacher for perfecting stability.
I hope this article will help you understand the subject and enable you to address the components of stability with more assurance when you are exploring the Feldenkrais Method.”
