What is Ginastica Natural?
In constant motion and with several combinations of different moves, Ginastica Natural is based on Jiu-Jitsu's ground movement, strength exercises using the body's own weight, and dynamic stretching and breathing techniques. There are hundreds of movements, with different class plans every day. It is a complete body of work that develops physical qualities like strength, flexibility, coordination, among others, and through breathing techniques provides the practitioner with great progress in mental and motor control. Romano has his own specific training routine and new sequences and exercises are being created every day to offer practitioners different and innovative ways to get to know and control the body and mind.
Ginastica Natural was developed by Alvaro Romano who created Ginastica Natural for fighters using his years of experience as a Jiu-Jitsu fighter, keeping up with the sport’s evolution by training athletes and participating in events around the world. Alvaro Romano is a Jiu-Jitsu black belt, his master was Rolls Gracie, and he later trained with Carlos Gracie Junior and Rickson Gracie.
His evolutionary foresight has enhanced the sport of brazilian jiu jitsu as well as brazilian jiu jitsu having been the sport that enhanced his evolutionary foresight. So the two go hand in hand in the improvement of our bodies and minds, which is the core purpose of both.
