Wíinkilil arte de defensa workshop

0 COMMENTS 27 July - 09:00 am



Why in Mexico do we practice self defense arts from other countries? Has there been a Mexican defense technique? What happened to him? Is it possible to create a new Mexican defense art? We invite you to participate in the Practical Workshop #Wíinkilil Arte de Defensa facilitated by Gervasio Cetto, on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. from July 27 - September 16.

Throughout history, the different techniques of self-defense and health have been inspired by cultural characteristics and animal movements. In this workshop we will take characteristics of some traditional activities that are currently practiced in indigenous peoples and rural communities of the states of Yucatán, Oaxaca, Jalisco and Baja California to imagine what the art of Mexican defense would be like.

In each of the sessions, the exploration of the movement will serve as a process of raising awareness about the richness and complexity of the elements and knowledge contained in human activities linked to sustenance and traditional life.

The course is suitable for people without knowledge of martial arts, who are interested in introducing themselves to them. The movements performed will be slow and fluid, prioritizing balance and spatial awareness. The word Wíinkilil in the Mayan cosmogony is the essence expressed in the body.

Requirements: computer, stable internet connection and comfortable clothes.

Registration from June 14 to 18 in Casa del Lago UNAM https://casadellago.unam.mx/nuevo/archivos/expresiones/practica-wiinkilil-arte-de-defensa?fbclid=IwAR29T007eZDypU6C91lL-9W6C7QBuNbxiCFmsDpitlv8QUPe6bgvCIcP9_w
