Tom believes in allowing students to learn through experimentation, experience, and expression. His approach does not require strict postures or movements but rather, encourages students to learn through free movement and iteration, resulting in greater body awareness and a strong feeling of accomplishment. Tom uses visualization technics and external world analogies to help students gain an understanding of the inner engineering of the body. The style is natural and free while having no strict rules, rigid structure or limitations (except for moral ones). All tactics are based on instinctive reactions, individual strengths, and characteristics, specifically designed for fast learning.
