find your way

The great thing about this approach to training is that everyone already knows how to do it. 

We all know what it is like to make our own choices, and how that makes us stronger and more capable, even when we make mistakes. We all know how to “just do it.” You are created this way. Your brain is programmed to learn through play.  

There is no right way. There is no perfect way. There are many ways. There are no basic or fundamental techniques that everyone has to know in Jiu Jitsu. Each person is different. There are techniques that work and make sense for you as an individual. Everyone is different and practices Jiu Jitsu in their own unique and different way.  

By taking the time to find your way, you will find that you can build any skill you choose.


Marvel Of Creation

You are born ready! Your training at Zenyo is based on a revolutionary approach that eschews the traditional “learning process.” 

Our training assumes a starting point that you are a marvel, a creation of the most complex system in the known universe — your nervous system. You do not need to be shown how to do things, how to move, how to adapt to the environment. You have a remarkable system already built inside of you. This system is called self-organization. 

Self-organization is the ability to spontaneously adapt to the movements, tasks, or goals demanded in any particular situation. You naturally perceive opportunities for action (affordances) through interaction with the environment. When you train in a manner that prioritizes self-organization, you are able bring out your own remarkable ability and let it shine.

Science Speak: “The interaction between the intrinsic dynamics and the external constraints of the system will produce the emergence of individual solutions and coordinated movement patterns. It won’t be necessary to inform the athlete about a theoretically ideal motor output, but create tasks and context where the technical skill can solve the constant changing situations. Solutions will emerge by the exploration of the environment and the perception of affordances (opportunities for action). Instead of memorizing a great number of rules and sequences of actions, athletes need to develop their capacity to perceive informational constraints and adapt their actions according to the specific goals." In other words, self-organization.
