Human movement is a language. The Axis Syllabus Notation System (ASNS) is its written counterpart. A descriptive set of symbols that are drawn from observations of behaviour and the environment. It is a way to become kinetically literate, to enhance the integrity and clarity with which we move, speak and express our thoughts. As precise and differentiated as it might be, any description of the body moving will only be approximate, including descriptions made using the ASNS symbol set. Although these symbolised descriptions are approximate, they offer many useful clues for our effort to find “balance”, or acquire certain skills.
