In this module we will review key principals of the five techniques from the subsequent five modules.

Through exercises repeating and expanding, the students can deepen their understanding of the various techniques. Once again reinforcing the principals thus learned, the space is given to delve deeper, with a bit more attention to the goals of the exercises and the concepts behind them.

Across the floor and short combinations will be practiced in addition we will spend time to evaluate and explore how to connect the components from various techniques in a logical manner: What principals do the techniques share? What is different?

Tasks will be given in small group exercises which will include combined these techniques. This practice of collaboration is intended to inspire and challenge each individuals understanding of the forms.

Discussion and reflection is encouraged and time allotted to express personal experiences in the various techniques and share any revelations (A-HA moments) with the group.
