Through MBS group lessons and storytelling, Jörg Freidanck offers a class of high school students the chance to reacquaint themselves with the pleasures of learning.
Current MBS Foundation student Jörg Freidanck has taught for over 35 years, which means that over 15,000 students have passed through his high school classes in physical education, and some 2,000 students have learned Judo from him. Since studying with MBS, Jörg has begun leading MBS group classes for the faculty of the high school where he teaches. He also offers group classes to the public in his town. At the end of the 2012-2013 school year, Jörg had the opportunity to present Moshe Feldenkrais’ work to a group of high school students as part of the school’s annual week of extracurricular activities and workshops. How he did so was both a natural extension of the principles taught at MBS Academy and a creative response to his class’s particular circumstances.
Jörg wanted to offer students the chance to experience, first-hand, the power of a learning environment that is both pleasurable and personal.
