About This Event

Welcome to the Playfight Fest, the 3-day training where you'll have the opportunity to dive in the art of Playfight and explore the therapeutic potential of this Practice.
Open to who is new to Playfight and to has experience with it, we will be a small and intimate group of participants, working together to explore our bodies, emotions, boundaries and experiencing the tribal way of bonding that Playfight can offer.
Participating to this event opens you the door to take part to the advanced training where you can learn how to become a Certified Playfight Facilitator. The Facilitator Training will be happening right after! Details below
It's a powerful practice to rediscover yourself and regain consciousness about your movements, your playfulness and conscious strength. This unique lineage of bodywork developed by Matteo Tangi, aims to develop your physical and emotional intelligence and connect with others in an authentic, primal and wonderfully human way!
The only rule is: Not hurt yourself and anybody else!

Matteo Tangi is the initiator of this Lineage of Playfight. His work is rooted on many years of therapeutic work on emotional/relational and body/movement level. He's work supports individuals to experience themselves undomesticated, free of conditioning and, at the same time, aware and responsible of themselves.
With his guidance Playfight becomes a safe container where individuals can unfold and explore their limits, heal old traumas and transform blockages, stuck energies, fears and frustrations in pure force for the daily life.

"I do bodywork, dance and martial arts since years but this is something new. Matteo's Playfight is beyond my expectations. In 3 days of Fest I went deep within myself and felt bonded and supported by a group of people I didn't know before. Incredible" Paulo, 38yo, Portugal
"I wish I knew this practice from before. Session after session I could re-learn to set boundaries and to use my feelings! I'm looking forward to do this with my children as soon I'm back home" Ana, 43yo, Germany
"Matteo has a great capacity to listen what the group and each individual needs. The way he leads is soft and warm but clear and sharp at the same time. I felt safe to explore beyond my comfort zone the all time". Mario, 56yo, Italy
