How do I move an instanced kinematic body from another objects script?

I am making a game and for the start step I want to move the player to the start position using the main levels script but I can’t figure out how to do it from another objects script.

lets say movement_manager and player has same scene



    export var player_node_path: NodePath
    #select player node in inspector
    onready var player = get_node(player_node_path) as KinematicBody2D

    var movement_speed: float = 200
    var velocity: Vector2 = Vectory.ZERO

    func _physics_process(delta: float) -> void:
        # horizontal movement
        velocity.x = Input.get_action_strength("right") - Input.get_action_strength("left) * movement_speed
       # vertical movement (jump)
        if Input.is_actioin_just_pressed("jump_button"):
        velocity = player.move_and_slide(velocity)

there is more way to do this batter way. One is to call movement related function from player script without defining velocity and other movement related var in movement_manager script.

if movement manager is player node child then easy use is
onready var player := get_parent()
or long way
export var player_node_path : NodePath = ".."
`“…” denote parent
