MCJ helps students discover their individual approach to craft. MCJ has developed integration techniques based on kinetic receptivity through breath, bringing one's impulsive self into presence as a unified instrument for the revelation of story. In a broader scope, the technique serves as a binding agent for the multiplicity of modalities in modern training, allowing personalization of, and confidence in, individualized technique development. It helps students take ownership of their own processes of artistry.
