Moshe Feldenkrais, D. Sc. (1904 - 1984) began developing what has become known as the Feldenkrais Method after he sustained a crippling knee injury while working in England during World War II. His own recovery process and subsequent wide-ranging research resulted in the creation of a unique educational system that incorporated his background in physics, Judo, and a lifelong interest in human development. By the end of Dr. Feldenkrais's life, the Feldenkrais Method had an international reputation, and he had trained a significant group of people who still carry on his work today as Feldenkrais teachers and trainers.

Jerry Karzen studied with Moshe Feldenkrais at the FeldenkraisInstitute in Tel-Aviv from 1976-1983. During those years he was Dr. Feldenkrais' personal traveling companion, secretary, and close friend.
 
Since 1980 Jerry has been the organizer or Educational Director for 25 Feldenkrais Training Programsin 9 countries, and has been a Visiting Trainer for numerous other programs. He is currently the Educational Director for Feldenkraistrainings in New Zealand, Germany, and Brasil.
