How Does The Merisoiu Technique Really Work
The Merisoiu Technique or TMT is based on Six Guiding Principles of a Healthier Lifestyle:
1. Earthing or Reconnecting With The Earth
2. Natural Movement or Reclaiming Your Nature
3. Zanshin or Awareness and Mindfulness
5. Personal Development
6. Habits Transformation
TMT is not a step by step plan, you cannot do one principle and then go to the next.
All principles blend into each other creating a bigger picture which gives you a better understanding of how health really works and stop seeing health as a goal in your life.
Health is something we should not have to think about, and I should not write about…. but I do for some reason. We should not make a life purpose out of it, a milestone or a goal.
How I came about it
The simple answer is 20 years of sweat, blood and tears. Ha ha, seriously it’s everything I’ve learnt and applied from my coaches and mentors from the age of 8 to this day. And I am still learning of course.
TMT has strong roots in Japanese Martial Arts, particularly Karate Shotokan, but Daito Ryu and Ninjutsu as well. I also apply some of the internal Chinese Martial Arts philosophies of Tai Chi and Chi Gong.
Everyone sees Martial Arts as fighting methods. I agree and disagree with this.
Martial Arts, when the students is wise enough to take the essence of the art, can be a powerful Personal Development journey.
This is a different story of how Martial Arts planted the seeds of discipline, determination and motivation in me from a very early age. A story I will talk about in another blog.
For now it is enough to say that The Merisoiu Technique brings together everything I learnt and applied in six pillar which are the Six Guiding Principles.
Here’s how TMT principles intertwine:
Natural movement if the physical part of the program which takes place outdoors.
But it’s not just Natural Movement you are practicing because another principle is involved as well, Earthing.
You may do natural movement training indoors but then you are missing a very important element of your health: reconnecting with nature, with the organic matter of which you and me are formed. Break that connection and you suffer the consequences.
Natural movement in the outdoors challenges your body in so many different ways, from flexibility to strength, power and physical fluidity and balance to mental focus and emotional stability.
Zanshin is an essential part of natural movement.
When they hear about outdoors training most people think about bootcamps. Natural movement is NOT bootcamp, it’s technique. Technique requires awareness and mindfulness, energy and focus.
This does not mean that your training will not be challenging. They will be more challenging than you imagine. And no, you do not need machines to get results. Training outdoors is more challenging that indoors.
Nutrition is what gives you the energy, focus and strength for your training.
You cannot train the body on the outside and forget about the inside or the other way around. They come together to form the whole. Only then you can say your body is healthy.
Personal development is continuous learning and growing.
It’s about rewiring your brain, doing things you haven’t done before and explore your true potential. Through natural movement and Zanshin you develop, learn and grow.
Habits transformation is the principle that brings everything together.
No matter how much you study, apply and you are coached on if you do not address your habits you will not be consistent and you will not get the results you seek.
However, it is not easy to wake up and go training at 6 am. It’s not easy to put your training kit on in less than 1 min and run out the door to meet your coach (that’s discipline). It is not easy to say no to ice-cream when we love it so much. It is not easy to do anything.
That’s why the habits transformation principles in The Merisoiu Technique takes you through a series of steps which you can apply to any habit to create and make it stick long term without so much struggle.
So here’s another benefit of The Merisoiu Technique: IT SAVES YOU TIME…. and money.
So instead of going to the gym, then doing earthing separate because science has proven to be beneficial, then of course you need Yoga and some fluidity so you go to Tai Chi lessons. But then you want to practice mindfulness and awareness so you go to yet another class where you spend more time searching for it and travelling to it and of course more money.
So stop spending time and money and embrace The Merisoiu Technique.
