Project
This work consists of a phenomenological study in martial arts and combat sports, especially based on its different manifestations. It aims to map these practices and to understand how the body fights through cultural nuances, in an understanding that is not only based on the reflexive sphere and verbal language, but also on pre-reflexive experience and body listening. To do so, the places in which these activities occur will be visited, in order to allow interviews, observations and the practical experience of the researcher, through emersiology. Its results are expected not only to understand the most common modalities (and also the rarer ones) but it also aims to explore methodological possibilities in the field of phenomenology and corporeality, focusing on martial arts & combat sports.
