Locomotion training is a particular form of floor work training and it is not only inclusive of the list you see above but also includes movements inspired from martial arts, dance, gymnastics, capoeira and handbalancing.
I also teach animal locomotion as it allows us to use our hands, and arms for motion - something that we have grown accustomed to no using (except for a mouse and a keypad).
The three I's of Isolate, Integrate and Improvise play a big role in our training and our progressions in our locomotion training.*
Locomotion may refer to specific types of motion:
I know i'm getting a bit scientific here but it is necessary to cover what locomotion entails -
Locomotion requires energy to overcome friction, drag, inertia, and gravity, though in many circumstances some of these factors are negligible. In terrestrial environments gravity must be overcome, though the drag of air is much less of an issue. In aqueous environments however, friction (or drag) becomes the major challenge, with gravity being less of a concern. Although animals with natural buoyancyneed not expend much energy maintaining vertical position, some will naturally sink and must expend energy to remain afloat. Drag may also present a problem in flight, and the aerodynamically efficient body shapes of birds highlight this point. Flight presents a different problem from movement in water however, as there is no way for a living organism to have lower density than air. Limbless organisms moving on land must often contend with surface friction, but do not usually need to expend significant energy to counteract gravity.
Terrestrial locomotion has evolved as animals adapted from aquatic to terrestrial environments. Locomotion on land raises different problems than that in water, with reduced friction being replaced by the effects of gravity.
There are three basic forms of locomotion found among terrestrial animals
