You can find different things called "playfight" out there but not all of them are the same
Playfight - Matteo Tangi Lineage is a unique body practice that integrates the playfighting in a framework of four powerful rituals that ignite transformation, and inspires deep connection, respect and nonviolence. This makes our lineage trustworthy all over the world.
Our Playfight is not a method or a style. It's more than a set of rules or movements. Like a stream, this lineage has a clear source, and during its course it gets enriched by the contributions of the community of people who practice it and share its values.
To support those who want to learn to offer Playfight Circles and join our community the Playfight Academy offers a solid ground to learn the skills needed and a fertile soil for the Facilitators to manifest their own talents and gifts. Anyone can join, no prerequisite.
Everything we teach is rooted in years of experiential development, refined and improved by skilled facilitators, and trusted by thousands of people. If the vision of inspiring deep connection, respect and nonviolence through conscious playfighting thrills you, join us!
