Playfight is deep connection, with myself and others
We connect with our primal side, the strength in our bodies and the wisdom in our emotions.
We take care of ourselves, and our limits, expanding them with kindness and fun.
We connect with others, learning to be authentic in relationship with them.
Playfight combines primal fighting, play and mindfulness
Primal fighting to awake the body's intelligence, using strength in a safe and respectful way.
Playto rediscover ourselves anew. To be less serious and more playful, joyful and alive!
Mindfulness to observe what happens on a deeper level, and to be more authentic.
Playfight is a personal journey and a tribal experience
We gather in Circle, and Playfight in the middle. We bond, we relate and we support each other.
We fight but there are no winners or losers. We use strength but we don't hurt each other.
We train as heartful warriors and warrioresses to stop violence and develop inner peace.
In one word:
Playfight is Connection
The distinctive signature of this Lineage of Playfight.
A simple yet powerful way to bring awareness, respect and connection.
I invite you
Everything begins from an invitation, which can be open to anyone or direct to someone. If the answer is "Yes" then the Encounter begins, while I honour a "No" saying "Thank you".
I feel you
The Playfighters connect in the middle of the Circle. They join their fists and say "Playfight!". The game to pin back the other begins! There is a time frame and no winner or loser.
I appreciate you
In the middle of the Circle the Playfighters hold hands, and one at a time, share what they appreciate about the other. The Circle witnesses in silence.
I hear you
The Playfighters sit back to back and listen in silence to a few voices from the Circle about what touched them. No advices or opinions, but personal sharings.

Stephan J, Germany
Since 4 years I have been practicing playfight in different ways and styles and I also hold classes in Berlin. Recently I participated in a 7-day Playfight event with Matteo Tangi and I am still overwhelmed by the authenticity and colossal connection that I experienced.
After a few days with people I never met before, it felt as if I knew the other participants for years. There was so much empathy to their beings that often I was touched to tears listening to their hearts and souls. We arrived as strangers and left as a family. I am convinced that if this lineage of
Playfight was distributed in the world, there would be so much more peace on Earth.

Playfight is an amazing experience! It is a Great team building tool: the community police forum in Nelson Mandela bay and IProtectMe team participated in an introduction class. It was an eye opener for all of us. Thank you for bringing this to South Africa!
Ambra Anja, Italy
Playfight is a journey within relationships and emotions. Through this experience I met humble warriors, wounded sisters and all other wonderful shades of human beings.
I experienced joy, play, fun and union.
Prem Sergio Tosi, Italy
A wonderful natural game! Common to every mammal... and perhaps common to every being. A game that can put us in touch with our most joyful animal nature, our human love and our divine conscious presence. Yes! Joyfully recommended!
Giuseppe Valenti, Italy
Playfight awakens and activates the system of healing. I would say that thanks to this it is able to keep active and healthy some systems that we use little, and to preserve us from the diseases of civilization. It also puts us in touch with our fears, with our center, and shows us aspects of us that we don't know or have explored little.
Marco Diadoro, Italy
I have been practicing fight in sports for 2.5 years and I immediately understood the enormous importance that Playfight could have in people's lives.
It brings three immediate benefits:
Becoming aware of your strength, your body and your potential. Feeling and welcoming the presence of the other, learning to enter into a relationship with it and overcoming the fear of it. Recovering ancestral and natural movements that we have almost completely lost.
I'm Matteo Tangi and my love for Playfight began when I was a kid. At the beach, on the grass, me and my friends would play fight for hours, having so much fun, feeling ecstatic and connected to one another.
Growing up something changed. Being physical and close was not common anymore, using our strength even less, it seemed it was only allowed in martial arts or competitive sports.
A few years ago I decided to reclaim that playfulness and freedom of using my body, my strength and my emotions. From there this lineage of Playfight was born.
Since then this is my regular practice, a way to meet myself and others with respect, honesty and care. A way to use my body and my strength to its fullest, being super aware of each movement, each breath, each touch.
Nowadays I passionately share this art with people, empowering them to facilitate their circles and creating together an international network to support and develop Playfight.
My dream is that in each city of the world people will gather in Playfight Circle reclaiming and enjoying our beautiful human nature.
