Hard Ground Is a Good Teacher: Place as Partner in Russian Martial Arts Practice

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The closest I have ever felt to death was falling head first into the ground in a damp drainage ditch in Lancaster, PA in 2001. I have spent more than a decade studying Russian Martial Arts. My most formative training experiences occurred in freezing, flooded drainage ditches and asphalt parking lots or, as Pennsylvanians say, macadam. The feeling of these spaces adheres to my memories and embodied practice of this martial art. My identity as a fighter was formed in these spaces, and they shape the way I approach the world and life today. Using personal reflection and insights from the cognitive ecology of Edward Hutchins and the extended cognition of Andy Clark, I will examine how these training spaces shaped both my practice of Russian Martial Arts, and my experience of the world around me.
