Sensomotor Communication System (SCS)
A program in which authors have synthesized the principles of movement and interaction from different disciplines of martial arts, gymnastics, and other systems for physical body development.

This method is based on the experience of many cultural trends that have spread and supported the ideas of a healthy, constructive society that seeks to maintain peace, harmony and personal integrity at different times and in different parts of the world.
Different cultures use these mechanisms and principles in both martial arts and areas of health improvement: Capoeira, Aikido, Tai chi, Russian martial arts, Wushu, Tensegrity.
The authors used those parts that are focused on improving and maintaining health, improving the overall culture of exercise, body and quality of life. All destructive and violent or confrontational elements were excluded.
SCS promotes unity among people, strengthens interpersonal harmony, and improves family and community relationships.
Through movement, one can understand the essence of communication. It can be watched and played out in all possible forms. In this system of interaction it is possible to form a tangible dialogue, to understand the mechanisms of communication with other people and the world around them.
It is impossible to lie with motion because everything is expressed by the moment in which a person does or does not do something, and in this system it is clear and obvious. Through movement one can get to know oneself, develop self-reflection. Movements reflect many of the human personality traits. The way a person makes movements shows how he or she acts in life.
New experiences in motion and through motion also create new mechanisms for solving social problems. Simple movements depict the most important and positive desires of human life. Freedom of thinking, creativity and attention to one’s own and others’ boundaries develop.
One of the most important elements of SCS is to create an environment in which people can express themselves, gain a certain amount of experience in safe conditions, enabling them to adapt better in the real world.
