I almost sustained serious injury today jumping from tree to tree about fifteen feet off the ground in the woods at a nature preserve in Gainesville, FL. It had been raining and my grip couldn’t handle the wet tree bark on impact when I tried to secure myself and land the jump. Thanks to Brandon Sewall and Primitive Movement – I didn’t fall awkwardly and get injured, instead I instinctually focused on landing balanced, with a slight bend in the knees into a forward roll to break the fall. Luckily it worked out and I just popped up and kept moving unscathed. This is proof that with practice and focus, his approach builds a smart body and instinctual behaviors that will help one react to all of life’s everyday surprises. Whether you’re falling from a tree or about to get hit buy a bus in New York City, training with Brandon will equip you with the tools to build a strong intelligent body that will help you in lifes unexpected situations. Thank you Brandon and Primitive Movement. #primalallday
