Ido Portal – Just Move – FULL MOVIE

Life all comes down to a few moments.

Thursday night was one of them.

You see hosting the world premiere of a feature length documentary film that you produced in four months time is already a very intense and special experience.

To envision an idea, then pitch it, then travel to film it, then construct it in the editing room, then screen test it, then colour and sound grade it, and then premiere it on the big screen to an audience of 200 people…well, life doesn’t get more challenging and sensational than that.

But to do all this with Ido Portal as the main feature of your efforts takes that intensity up by a factor of 10.

Because Ido is a man I respect tremendously, whose message is one that I believe is crucial to the future of humanity.

And it’s our responsibility to tell it with clarity and integrity.

No pressure Brian 🙂

Well now you get the chance to judge for yourself.

Some people say it’s our finest work yet, others told me they experienced a life-altering moment.

For me it answered one simple question:

Why do we do this at London Real?

The answer:


Yes, love.

We create movies and multi-media at London Real to express our love.

Our love for a person.

Our love for an idea.

Our love for transforming the world.

Watch closely and you can see it.

You can feel it.

You can even be a part of it.

Ido Portal, thank you for your trust.

We love you.

(sombre music)

– [Brian] I don’t know
about you, but something

just doesn’t feel quite right.

Sometimes I look at the world and wonder,

why am I really here?

I get anxious.

I feel lost

and confused.

I have more friends than ever

but I don’t really feel connected.

I have all this information

but I can’t find the truth.

The more I seek pleasure

the less I find happiness.

I don’t remember the last time I played.

I don’t remember the
last time I was scared.

I don’t remember the last time

I felt human.

Maybe the answer is right in the mirror.

Maybe it is something I took
for granted my whole life.

Maybe the answer is inside my own body,

the only thing that connects
me with who I really am.

If I can understand that,
maybe I can understand myself.

So I’m travelling to the
oldest place in the world

to learn the oldest lesson known to man

from the only person who can teach me.

So who is Ido Portal?

And what does he teach?

Well, where do I begin?

In 2014, the man walked into my studio

carrying all of his
possessions on his back.

He was a nomad, relentlessly
touring the world

city by city teaching his
message one person at a time.

What I though would be
just another interview,

instead, changed everything.

Because I began to think of my
body in a completely new way.

You see, Ido is a man
obsessed with human movement

who has spent his entire
life in the pursuit

of this knowledge.

His subject: Movement.

His mantra: Move.

Move more, move better.

Move with more freedom.

Move with more understanding.

Move, move, move.

His teachings would attract
a new tribe of practitioners

with their own unique
ideas, values and character.

Ido would call this Movement Culture.

Then in 2015, everything would change

when he began training the
UFC fighter Conor McGregor.

Suddenly both Ido and his culture

were elevated to a global stage

where the world would
learn of Lizard Walks

and Spinal Waves from one of
the most well-known fighters

on the planet.

This was incredible for
me to watch in real time.

It was like some kind of
a strange YouTube dream.

Months later, Conor will
be crowned the UFC champion

with Ido Portal right by his side.

But for me, Ido was
always the same person,

just a man obsessed with
finding the master key

of human movement.

And yet the more I understood
of what Ido taught,

the more I became confused.

With more answers, came more questions.

And I soon found myself lost again

in this concept that was so simple,

yet so complicated.

So when Ido invited me to
Israel, I jumped at the chance.

As a kid from the beaches of California,

the Middle East had always fascinated me.

A place with so many
cultures and countries

and languages and traditions.

Where people created religion
in search of salvation.

Looking for answers outside
of their own bodies.

Like many of you,

I had watched the news.

I had seen the violence.

I had heard the politicians speak

but I wanted to see what it
was really like for myself.

(sombre music)

So here I am

in the land of the soul

to learn about my body.

(sombre instrumental music)

(upbeat music)

– You try your best to keep
going, keep going, keep going.

Don’t stop, never stop, never stop.

There is no reason to rest,
just keep going, keep going.

You’re frustrated, keep going.

Oh I’m shit, keep going.

I wanna kill myself, keep going.

Keep going, keep going, keep going.

Just chew on it, get
used to the craftsman.

I am making a craft here.

And you know it’s like the first craft

that you made in primary school.

You brought your mother
some, fucked-up statue.

You said, mom, look what I did.

And she said, what a beautiful creation.

You’re so creative.

It’s like afterwards, your
dad throws it in the garbage

because he thinks it’s some,

some leftover.

So here we are,

first, we are just getting used to that,

I’m shitty, I’m not yet good at it.

It’s the Shoshin, the beginner mindset.

And we go into the beginner moment.

And I try to sustain the ball on the wall

for as long as possible by placing myself

in front of it,

tightening my fists

and moving my body.

If I miss it, I miss it.

I pick it back up, I go back into it.

Let’s do it.

– There he is.


– How are you?

– I’m good, I’m here.

– What do you think about this?

– It’s amazing, this is
like a big playground.

– That’s what it is.

It is a playground for adults.

There is no bigger reason for
a community to gather around.


(soft music)

– I remember the first
thing Ido ever told me.

– It’s not about what you wanna learn.

It’s about what the
teacher wanna teach you.

Yet people hate hearing it.

If you find a real teacher and
if you find a real process,

it doesn’t matter what he teaches,

what it teaches or what she teaches.

It just matters that you found that thing,

so if I found a real violin teacher,

I’ll study violin.

Mastery of everything is
the mastery of mastery.

It’s the mastery of yourself.

– Ido was born in Haifa, Israel,

a beach town near the border with Lebanon.

As a young man, he was always
obsessed with the physical.

And at 15 years old, he
fell in love with Capoeira.

The seductive Afro-Brazilian
martial art and dance

that introduced him to
movement, music and rhythm.

For the next 16 years,
Ido would master the art.

But this dance was not enough
and Ido longed for more.

So he travelled the world

in search of a true movement teacher,

learning from anyone in any
discipline along the way.





Circus performers.

And fighters.

He studied Nutrition.




Mental training and more.

Unable to find a movement teacher,

he returned with one conclusion.

– I didn’t make the next
mistake of being an acrobat,

being and I don’t know, a dancer.

I realised I love movement,
on all of its shades.

Utilitarian movement.

Artistic movement.


Any form of mind-body connection.

(reflective music)

Boom, one.



Feel it.


Balance, feel it.


Don’t drop down, everybody
sees that you’re shitty.

If you spend days on the rail,
you would become the cat.

But we stop challenging
ourselves like this

and we start to feel shitty,
hence we don’t like it.

I challenge you to not like
it when you’re good at it.

(speaking foreign language)

– Let’s face it.

I am not a mover.

In middle school, I won the science fair.

At university, I got
the engineering degree.

Now I’m surrounded by proper athletes,

all of them 20 years younger than me.

And what’s with the tennis
balls and handrails?

When are we gonna get to the good stuff?

– If it’s too much and I give
you a traumatic experience,

you’re not gonna go back into it.

And then we encapsulate the fear.

And inside the capsule, it grows

until it takes over your life,

where touching it in the
right moments is okay.

Here is the controlled risk.

Yeah, you can probably somehow
if you’re a real idiot,

catch your foot inside of
here, fall on the other side

and crack your head open.


Making some serious
mistake, but without it,

what will happen.

Yeah like I’m here, I’m here, I’m here.

I’m here, okay I need this, I step on it.

I need here, there’s a whoa,
whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.

Where am I, okay, I’m
stepping here, oh I need,

I’m falling down, off I come down here.

It’s nothing.

But it looks much different
when you’re up there.

– Yeah.

– Try again.

And breathing now.

And a small smile as well.

Yeah, this smile relaxes you.

It’s connected with the mindset.

Yeah, just a small stretch of the lips.

A fake smile, faking it
until we’re making it.

Small smile and breath.

Release the leg.

Standing on two legs is the hardest thing.

Now you can use it for balance.

The right leg, it’s a
huge part of your balance.

And now you place it when you’re ready.


The fear comes in, wants
to make contractions.

You manage it.

Don’t eliminate it,
you’ll never eliminate it,

but you play with it.

You dance with the fear.

Don’t overuse me.

You did it, now you did it.

You took that step.





Go back one step.

Uh-huh, you’re good.

Okay, we’ll do the descent.

Put the right foot, squat down slowly.



Squat down slowly again.

You’re good, push it back, release it.

Good, slowly come down into the foot.

– Yeah.

– You applied.

Now you broke it.

But you, this is your project.

Mounting, walking alone.

Dismounting, coming down.

Maybe not today, but before you leave.

Capture it.

– Okay.

– The next time you try it,

it’s a completely different beast

but you have to step away from
it to feel the difference.

Now you broke it, you broke the fear.

This is what the parkour
kids call, breaking the jump.

It’s actually breaking
the fear of the jump

or breaking the fear of the element.

All of a sudden, it was possible.

Did you feel it?

– Yeah.

– What was impossible
before, what was paralysing,

all of a sudden, pa!

I dared and no, oh!

It’s not so, it’s not so difficult.

And it happened.

– Yeah, but I had to trust that process

and make the leap when my
brain was saying, don’t do it.

– Yeah, and I as a teacher,
that’s the interesting part.

I can hold your hand to
the edge of that cliff

but when it’s time to
jump to the other side,

I cannot occupy your hand.

You can only do it yourself.

I can teach you a jab, and a
cross and do all the drills,

but eventually, you’re all alone.

The ring is the loneliest place.

And it’s the same here.

I can give all the tools and instructions,

but you have to deal with
that emotional, hormonal dump

that focus, that fear.

So it’s a beautiful moment of
self-discovery and evolution.

You’ve just made a huge

change in your neurological makeup.

You’ve rewired yourself around this fear,

around the possibilities,

and you’re not the same
person as you were.

This is beautiful, we need
more of this in our lives.

It’s uncomfortable.

But this creates huge changes.

It’s an arrow, discomfort
and fear is an arrow.

It’s here.

This is where the gold
is, X marks the spot.

It’s here, but we go with the pleasure.

That’s not where the arrow points.

And that eventually, is
not pleasurable anymore

and it kind of can destroy our lives.

But where our fear resides,
this is where real growth is.

And discomfort and pain is part of it.

– Thank you.

– Good guy.

(upbeat music)

– My name is Odelia.

I practise Movement for a living.

I came across Ido’s work in Capoeira

and I directly recognised
there’s something

different about the approach,
about the quality of the work.

I had to learn from this person,

so I just started to train with him and

then we shifted into other worlds.

I had a car accident around 10 years ago.

I was just driving the
car on my way to Haifa

to meet Ido and the guys

and someone ran into the car behind me

and I nearly died.

I broke four vertebras in
the lower back, L1 to L4.

I was lying in the hospital
bed and I was thinking,

I wonder where will I be
in five years from now.

Will I be able to walk?

Will I be able to do this?

And then, after a few
weeks, these questions,

still I remember the day that I was lying

and thinking about it
because I couldn’t walk,

I couldn’t move.

I realised that it doesn’t matter.

I tried to live everyday,
like I know it’s a bit cheesy,

but it’s as if it’s my last.

But it really is, it really could be.

(dramatic upbeat music)

(upbeat music)

– I have a 10-month old boy.

And I think I told you, he’s crawling now

and he’s about to walk.

You said to me, you said,

Brian, he’s closer to
the source than you are.

– Yeah, yeah.

First, his operating tools
that are superior to yours

in many ways.

Tools of intuition.

Tools of connection without
yet terminology and language

taming the process.

Fears are not categorised yet as fears.

So how does this work?

Those, like as a child-like, right?

Like you have to learn how,
you learned how to walk.

You figured it out.

You know, who taught you how to walk?

Not your parents.

Nobody teaches his child how to walk.

That’s not true, that’s not honest.

You learned how to walk.

It can only be learned and figured it.

And that’s the beauty of the struggle,

the Sisyphus approach.

The struggle, pushing
that rock up the mountain

is enough to feel our
hearts, that’s the nature of

being alive.


Increasing awareness.

Enjoying this reality that
nobody fucking knows what it is.

So I think it’s a good thing
that we have to struggle.

Once we eliminate the
struggle, great emptiness hits

and it happens on a micro
level for us all the time.

Reaching goals, it’s a
very emptying moment.

Which brings us to another
very important thing.

Success is not a good orientation.

It’s a filthy word.

It’s a nauseating word.

I hear it a lot, success.

How did you become successful?

How to succeed?

That’s a wrong orientation.

The orientation should be

to learn something about this body,

this mind, the nature of our awareness

through those tools.

But, it does not mean you
don’t do them very intensely.

So I practise like a madman

but with complete
detachment of the result.

In the end of the day, it’s
about being a craftsman

and not being the success story.

Sit down and do your fucking work.

(waves splashing)

– You still do hanging work

these days–
– Yeah

and everything?
of course, of course.

I do it in the gym now

and I just think about you
all the time, you know.

– Oh always good.

– How often do you prescribe the hanging?

– Daily.

– Daily and–
– Daily.

For what kind of a time interval?

– Five, seven minutes a day total time

but they build it up in small sections,

maybe 30 seconds, maybe 20
seconds, maybe a minute.

It’s kind of like a cat stretch for us

’cause we’re not moving on all fours.

So we rarely kind of, the modern lifestyle

very compressed about it
and we’re already extended.

And this is kind of

a very nice extension,
it runs through you.

You let gravity do the alignment for you.

And what better modality
to use than gravity.

We’re living with gravity.

We have a constant relationship with it

although many don’t realise it.

And then, the other thing,
the compression is the squat,

which we’ve talked about before.

And just compressing
the lower body and just,

yeah just down here spending time.

This is what I would
recommend for everyone.

These two basic things.

You have to really think,

what kind of legs do you wanna beat?

I don’t want tree trunk
legs, I want bamboo legs.

Wank, wank, wank, wank.

Flexible, strong.

If the wind comes, it bends
it, but it doesn’t break.

And it can bounce me out, it’s elastic.

– I do this now in a suit when
I’m waiting for my breakfast

in London and people walk by
and they just don’t understand.

I also hang in the subway on the thing

and it freaks the English people out.

– Yeah, I’m sure.

I do it Germany and I
get some weird looks.


– I see many people are very
much stuck in their own world,

in their own lack of movement.

And what we’re trying to bring
is movement to the public.

To make people join us
and to do rail outside

and let people like see what we do

to bring movement and life

and everything that we do out there,

like as many people as possible.

Not to become a couch potatoes

and like Ido would say, a Homer Simpsons.


(electronic music)

– Send it up, send it up.

Send it up, hup, hup, hup.

Hup, hup, no, hup, hup.

Hup, hup.

Hup, hup.

Hup, hup.

Hup, hup.

Hup, hup.


♫ Oh this is why

♫ We stop time

♫ Go to paradise

♫ Heaven of mine

♫ I want to show it

♫ Pack your bags

– Good, we start with
movement of the spine.

Starting with the wall.

She will stand very close to the wall,

facing the wall, actually.

And come a bit from
the sides, come closer.

She will touch the wall with the nose

and then she will touch
the wall with the chin

and then, with the chest.

And with the chest to the ribs.

With the ribs into the abdomen.

Abdomen into the pelvis.

By the time, she touch the pelvis,

the nose is the furthest back.

And now she initiates again.





abdomen, pelvis, nose again.

And she does this very,
very slowly like this.

And little by little, it
will start to form a wave.

As she come close to the wall,

but she does not touch it anymore.

And she starts to wave her spine.

Wave her spine.

We will go like this five
minutes straight, non-stop.

Everyone across the wall, let’s start.

(hypnotic music)

This is about fine motor
control, terminology.

Movement terminology.

The control of the body.

The articulation.

The separation for the sake
of integration later on.

For the sake of improvisation later on.

Good, if I was a yoga
teacher, I would say one wave

and hold the world, or
something like this.

But it was one wave, it’s the same wave.

And you can use it in multitude of ways.

To go in and out and you don’t
have mastery of that wave

unless you can actually use
it in a variety of ways.

It’s Archaeological wave, yeah.

Where do we come from?

From where?

Yeah from there.

The life start there.

So evolutionary.

Our spine is coming from there.

We still have that fluidity.

We have it, it’s a reason.

You have it, that’s it.

It’s like people don’t respect

the fact that they receive something.

Now the leg, I use it.

I have a spine, I use it.

Most people don’t respect that.

So, when do they respect it?

They hit the wall.

You fuck up your spine by
sitting, by not moving,

by not oscillating.

By the time it’s fucked
up, now you want it back.

Life does this to you.

Life asks you do I have
something in my eye?

You’re not gonna get it, it’s too late.

Yeah and the biggest depression
can be resolved with that.

And near-death experience.

It’s enough, it kills all the,

it’s the Prozac.

You know, a small accident.

Like a car accident.

And appreciation of your spine.

Odelia broke her back.

It’s like, okay, I want that back.

I thought I didn’t need it, now I need it.

(slow dramatic music)

(balls thudding)

Because I’m interested in the ability,

in the content, inside the container,

in the liquid, inside the cup

and not in the cup.

The tennis boxing game is the container.

What is the content?



Sense of distance.


Touch my hand.

It’s not easy

to touch that ball, to catch it, yeah.

– Ido was teaching us to deal
with unexpected situations.

The randomness of the ball

and the unpredictability of our fists

forced the brain and body to
move and react in new ways.

Ido once told me, I don’t plan, I react.

He was teaching us to embrace chaos,

to be anti-fragile,

to grow stronger with randomness.

– The problem is the
more you play this game,

the less it does the magic.

And at the same time, the
more you play the game,

the better you become at it.

These move in inverse correlation

because the more you get good at it,

the more you like to do it,

but the less it is for you.

Because now it becomes a specialised tool.

Wow, I can do this game really well

because I trained it.

Good, so it’s a beautiful game.

It’s also playful, it’s also enjoyable.

And brings us back into a little
bit, this juvenile approach

of learning through play.

Through craftsmanship.

As a child, you don’t go
into the competitive mindset

right away, you’re more
in a playful mindset.

Let’s play.

You don’t think there’s,
oh he’s better than me

when you’re two years of age.

You just play.

You’re not orienting
yourself towards success.

And when you fail,
you’re done, you’re over.

You’re not orienting
yourselves towards things

that are temporary, but
you orient yourself towards

something bigger,
craftsmanship, self-mastery,

self-discovery, evolution.

My movements are beautiful today

but maybe tomorrow my movements
are not beautiful anymore.

But I’m not basing myself in beauty.

It’s not about just moving
beautiful and looking beautiful.

Yeah and I did the eyebrows for the shoot

’cause I don’t base myself in that.

Because that is going to get over,

your tits are gonna get down here.

The ball sac is decreasing
one millimetre every year

of a male’s life.

Yeah, when I walk with it,
on the floor in a few years,

dragging it behind.

So we are declining, we are destroyed.

The body cracks, we get injured, we age.

We age now!

Not tomorrow.

We age!

We are born into the grave.

So let’s base ourselves in something else.

Let’s do the play.

Let’s discover.

(upbeat music)

– Even if it’s a dead-end
street, these games,

it’s already a beautiful
way to pass an afternoon,

and it’s

to make sure you are feeding yourself,

not food but movement,

tasks that are essential for us.

And that’s not respected.

The adults look at it
like, eh he’s just playing.

He’s just being a kid.

Yeah, he’s being human,
more human than you.

Hormonal dance, we are just playing that.

We must play.

It’s our way of being,
it’s our way of developing,

surviving everything.

Animals play and they perceive mankind.

So play is bigger than humanity.

It’s not like you become
old, you stop playing.

You grew old because you stopped playing.


(gentle piano music)

– I think that the really disabled people

are the people that don’t move.

And it’s like if you see
around, usually in big towns

and everywhere in the world,
Europe, in the States,

in Israel, everywhere, you
see most of the people,

they don’t move.

They walk.

They sit in their car.

They eat stuff.

Awful stuffs usually.

They look at TV.

I mean, they’re very

stiff and they don’t move, they don’t try

to challenge their body.

And so they don’t try to
challenge their mind, either.

It’s all together, you know.

(soft dreamy music)

I was injured by a train
accident in France.

It was 32 years ago.

I met a lot of people at the hospital

that couldn’t do what I can do.

I find myself in front of people that

have so big problems, you know.

And I felt like, okay, I
don’t have any problem.

Okay, I’m sitting in a wheelchair
because I have no legs.

It’s easier for me, but
I can be on the floor.

I can climb, I can do everything.

I’m like a monkey, you know.

And then I had a feeling
that I have to move

for those who can’t move.

The guy who can’t move his arm,
I am moving for him, my arm

because I think it’s like a,
I have a so great privilege,

I have to use it.

I have to use it.

And I don’t think everybody
has to deal with sport

at a high level.

I think everybody has to move,

meaning you have a lift
and you have stairs.

Take the stairs.

You have, I don’t know what,

you have a car and a bike, take the bike.

Not the electric bike, you know,

the normal bike, the tiring one.

You can run, you can jump, you can dance.

Just do it.

(soft dreamy music)

– Okay, I’ve given this body.

That’s enough reason for me
to respect it tremendously.

I’m not gonna degrade this body.

I’m not gonna destroy this body.

But because I was given this,

it’s enough reason for me

to go full on with it.

To learn about it, to operate it.

And to work with it and to explore it

and to understand it.

But it’s hard work to remind yourself that

and to continue to explore that.

If I take your leg, you immediately know,

I need my leg back.

The body is us

and we kind of know it.

But we also fall into all
this Descartesian traps,

living up here.

And by the time, we are
realising it, it’s too late.

We lived in a sub-optimal way.

And maybe that doesn’t
matter, like I said.

Maybe ultimately, again,
the same end results.

The same end results but
somehow, again, like you said,

it makes sense right now to go
full on with what I received.

I have this breath, so
I use it to communicate

with the most passion, the idea to you.

Not just, wasting it away.

I have this leg.

Okay, what can I do with this leg?

I have this spine, what can I do with it?

I have this brain, what can I do with it?

It’s a good reason to go for it.

And it fulfils you back
because of that, I think.

It gives you so much because it’s a hint,

it’s the right thing.

– Purely because you can.

’cause it’s enough of a reason.

– Yeah.

It’s there, respect that.

Why do you think it’s there?

(soft music)

(truck engine rattles)

(bird chirping)

(soft piano music)


(upbeat music)

– Who is this gentleman over here

who seems to be enjoying himself?


– That’s inspired by Ben-Gurion,

the very legendary Prime
Minister of Israel who,

the story tells, it was a
student of a Moshe Feldenkrais

who created the Feldenkrais method.

There is a very famous photo
of him practising headstands.

I think there was a lot
of movement happening here

back when I was an itch in
my daddy’s pants, not even.


– Why movers like that in Israel?

Is it the climate?

Was it the new ideas, new
ways of thinking, new people?

– Major part of it is
surviving the horrors of Europe

80 years ago.

And a major part of it is the climate,

that is supportive of more movement.

Definitely colder
countries, less movement.

Constant threats, terror, wars.

And then also people’s bodies

which come from different
climates and arrived here

with a certain gene pool
and they have problems.

Health issues and joints
and pains and aches.

And all this is contributing something,

so it’s a country of immigrants.

It’s a crucible of cultures.

– On my flight over here,
they gave me a pillow

and they gave me a blanket.

And it was just about
the right temperature.

I had water, a little bit of food.

I was extremely comfortable.

I’m curious what you think about
killing people with comfort

and are we, are we a little bit
too protected now as humans?

– It’s a common issue,
it’s a common problem.

We’ve taken the road of
satisfaction, protection,


pleasure, comfort to a ridiculous level.

We are oversensitive and
over-alarmed by certain things.

And that fear creates its own problem

and pains and issues around it.

Sometimes more than the actual condition.

Fear is an extremely
powerful thing in our lives.

It’s one of the most primal, basic inputs

that we use, but it took over our lives

because we come from an environment

with many dangers and risks.

And it was a very potent, protective tool

but now it became a hindrance.

I think happiness is
not a good orientation,

but fearlessness is a
much more powerful thing.

You will never be fearless,
but your reorientation

might be good for us nowadays.

Less fear

and more

yeah more awareness of

how do I perceive things.


We are creating this environment

by how we see it and the
narrative that we make of it.

And the narrative is the story.

The story that you tell yourself.

The Brian, Brian is a story.

If you take it down
into the most tiny bits,

Brian doesn’t exist.

It’s a collection of stories.

Hence, what really happened to you

is not as powerful is
what you tell yourself

happened to you.

Now old-school psychotherapy, Freudian

was dealing a lot with
that was what really,

what happened there?

Let’s dig into it.

It’s not this powerful as the stories

that you tell yourself.

– We are the sum of the
stories we tell ourselves.

What story had I been telling myself?

For 40 years, I had
pursued money and success,

my twisted version of the American dream.

It brought me emptiness.

So I created a new story, London Real.

It was scary but worth it.

Now I am the student.

Always learning, always beginning.

I was starting to see Ido

as much more than a teacher of Movement.

Instead, he was using
his tools to connect us

to what we really are.

Our pure essence.

Our original nature.

Helping us to understand ourselves

in order to understand everything else.

To abandon what we’re good at
and embrace what we sucked at.

Shoshin, what the Japanese
call the beginner’s mind.

– Doing this, it was
considered the weirdo.

Now, it’s a whole culture doing it.

And I’m so happy to see
here, people coming in

playing with a ball,
you know, on the wall.

It’s like why, because now it’s,

it’s a fashionable way of training,

of being, of moving.

You’ve done the same.

It was London Real.

All of a sudden, it’s like,

yeah, to record some conversations

and publish them by yourself, it’s cool.

It’s opportunity.

So we took the system to break the system.

And of using what’s there.

– Yeah, give people what they really want

which was told to them

that they shouldn’t be doing these things

which is play and real conversations.

– I’m not a serious trainer.

You’re not a serious journalist.

Journalists would make fun of me.

And trainers

and PhD physiology experts make fun of me.

But it’s too powerful, you
can’t ignore it anymore.

And it’s so

yeah they have to respect it eventually.

(upbeat music)

Then you would to catch the stick

as close as possible to the floor

using your legs to lunge,
to move, to place you.

We’re gonna two minutes one
arm, two minutes the other arm.

By that time, you should warm
up your legs really well.

(sticks clattering)

I can use squatting.

And I can use lunging of all kinds.

And I warm up my legs in a real way.

It’s not like you’re preparing this way.

(breathes deeply)

And then you go to a judo match

and you’re in a perfect.

Life looks


Pause a tennis game on YouTube.

What do you see?

So, this is a much more
real way to prepare the legs

because if you do prepare the legs in this

perfect positions, you
can’t move for shit.

These are the worst movers on the planet!

Fitness people.

They are the people who
invest the most amount of time

into their physical practise
and move the poorest.

Of course, the couch potatoes are worse.

But for the amount of
time invested in movement,

they are the worst.

(light upbeat music)

Very important, nowadays,
is to empty the arms.

The arms are too full,
your arms are locked.

People are moving around.

The same thing with the
spine, their calcified arms

and then they go to the
gym to try to get this.

And we need to empty the arms.

Add a little bit of movement
just to remind yourself.

Notice how I bend my knees
to catch the motion of it

and I feel a rush of blood in my hand.

Rush of blood.

Rush of blood.

Rush of blood.

When I do the drills with Conor, he says,

I feel like an orangutan.

He finishes.

I’m ready, I feel like an orangutan.

And that’s where he told all
this stuff originated from.

Yeah, the Vinnie McMahon walk

was more cocky, but he
added these ape arms,

so getting a little bit longer.

I hope you feel that.

Now, you’re already too long.


Yeah, you as well.

Yeah boi.

Remember what I said?

These are transmission cords,
but what am I doing now?

I’m trying to make this the
engine, not the transmission.

Strong arms mean shit

because the power is not here.

I’ll show you the real power now.

Yeah, capture it.

Observe, this is the real
power, how you unclog the holes.

(imitates sipping air)

This is nothing.

This is not here, it’s not here.

It’s here.

Look, turn around.

Look at this, this is the sign of power.

Look at how the low back,

look at the thickness of the low back.

It’s a lot more in the extremity,

the end of the chain and
the end of the chain.

It’s here (slapping).

That’s why we’re obsessed with this.

Yeah, vroom.

This is that engine.

It’s that, that makes the power,

but we became focused on

(light upbeat music)

– And I’ve always been
fascinated by Movement and

bringing Ido in this week was phenomenal.

It re-centered the mind,
it changed the training.

It was Movement-based,
there was no contact.

To be able to go into the same positions

and balance on one hand or in

in unusual positions,
to be able to do that,

you don’t just have
control over your body,

you control over your mind.

So it’s always been
something’s that fascinated me.

(triumphant orchestral music)

– [Brian] What do most people do

when they’re the very best
in the world at something?

They keep doing it.

And why wouldn’t they?

It brings them fame, money and success.

But what if success is
the wrong orientation?

What if being fearless
is a better approach?

(rock music)

Or it seems as if Conor
McGregor is about to find out.

Considered the very best
mixed-martial artist in the world,

he has decided to enter a
completely new arena, boxing.

Where his kicks,

his elbows, his chokes,

his 20 years of martial arts training

cannot be used.

A sport where he has zero
professional experience.

This takes the beginner’s
mind to the next level.

But there’s more.

His opponent is a man considered

to be one of the greatest
boxers of all time,

Floyd Mayweather.

With a flawless 49-0 record.

So how can Conor win?

He must use something unorthodox,

use something unexpected,

use something counterintuitive.

Use Ido Portal.

– Now there are more rules

which means if you could introduce some

new movement principles

that Floyd’s never seen,
it could really be that

master key or mega principle
you’re talking about.

– We meet two different animals,

kind of like an octopus and a lion.

There are a few ways to
approach it for Conor.

And I’m not sure where it’s gonna go.

One of the ways is to box with the boxer.

And that’s of course, is a
very difficult thing to do.

Another thing is not
to box with the boxer.

It’s to find loopholes inside,

possibility scenarios
which are still allowed

within the boxing realm

and above that, as well,

just confidence and
fighting spirit and heart

is a huge factor here as well.

Of course,

both possess that.

– [Brian] You might say it’s impossible,

but that’s the point.

Go to where the fear is.

And all of the world will be watching.

Because deep down inside,
every single one of us knows

this is what life is truly about.

It’s the essence of being human.

(rock music)

Conor has already won.

What was the biggest thing
you learned about yourself?

With all of that focus and criticism and

’cause you’re you know, you’re
on a different level now

in working with people like Conor.

– Yeah, I learned that I’m not about,

I’m not about being loved by everyone

which I once I believed,
like I’m a good force.

I want to do good.

I’m a hard worker.

I built myself really,
with that those skill sets.

I worked so hard at it.

So like, why shouldn’t it be
accepted well by everyone?

And I learned that, no
that’s not what I’m about.

– The bigger the star that you work with,

the bigger the tale that
is told about you, right?

– Yeah.


– As you said to me, if you
can’t stand the heat, stay out

of the kitchen, right?
– Yeah.

– Yup, yeah.

– Yeah, I said it to
myself, at a certain point

because I realise like, oh
shit, what did I get into.

And then I reminded myself
like, okay do you wanna do it

or don’t you want to do it?

Can you stand the heat or not?

Take the criticisms.

Work with hatred, with
the haters, you know like,

that’s the next level.

Okay, what it does to the ego.

How you operate with that.

You should really not
take criticism from a,

from general public, from con mans,

from talk-backs, from
critics that never met you,

don’t know nothing about you.

They’re not providing criticism from a

an expert point of view.

Their egos are screaming
their own jealousy,

their own insecurities, or
their just lack of understanding

in the subject matter.

But if you never met
me, you never did any,

you never took a class with
me, how you wanna criticise

what I’m doing?

Why do you wanna talk about Movement?

It took me 20 plus years
to begin to understand

that I don’t understand.

So what are you, what do you understand?

You didn’t spend a moment
trying to understand.

Did you watch some clips?

You watched an interview, what did you do?

You saw a handstand or a crawl

and then a moment after,
a play with the ball?

And a dance routine?

And then a fight exercise and a game?

What do you know about it?

You don’t know nothing about it.

You cannot do it as well.

So all these hints,
don’t take the criticism.

But don’t avoid criticism all together.

Have the people in your life,
providing you that feedback

for growth, for self-development.

– So if you aren’t doing it
for some kind of love then,

so what did you conclude
you’re doing it for then?

– I’m doing it for my own self-discovery,

it’s being interested.

It’s discovering, it’s growing and

it’s passing time in that way

because all we can do is just pass time.

That’s all we’re doing, right?

Like, people ask me, why are you doing it?

It’s a way to pass time.

It’s a good answer, I once heard it from

a martial arts teacher.

(electronic music)

(waves splashing)

– I’m always trying to
figure out what it is

that you do (chuckles) what
it is you’re all about.

The best example was yesterday,

I went through Israeli immigration.

And they’re like, why are you here?

I’m here to see Ido Portal,
one of your national treasures


– Oh no.

– And I said, what is he?

I said, he’s the movement
(imitating slow motion speech).


He’s not a specialist, not an expert.

If I called him a guru, he
would be looking for me.

And yet, when I pulled my phone out

and showed him literally 15 seconds

of you on YouTube, moving, they got it.

Not only did they get
it, they were excited.

And they wanted to know more about it

and then they were pulling the
other Immigration officers in

to look at your video.

Why does this happen?

– It’s a

like all paradigm shifts
in a way, I think,

it’s so simple.

It’s so, you know there
is the side of people

who said, it was always there.

Of course, it was always there.

We’re living in a body.

Of course people were always moving.

Movement was always there.

I don’t have any new insights.

There is nothing new under the sun.

It’s just

I spin the perspective.

I turn them to look at
it from a different,

a different perspective.

And then, it just happens.

Bruce Lee said it very well

and he repackaged the philosophy

that was known from before.

Absorb what is useful.

Disregard what is useless and
add what is uniquely yours.

– And tell me about the
subsequent development

of Movement Culture as we know,

Ido Portal’s Movement Culture.

– Yeah, it’s just

you can’t do it alone.


You have to move inside the culture.

You need a culture to move in

which is you are starting to,

you will start to feel it

if you don’t feel it already, very soon.

Just because you’re already now practising

in a more open way, but
you kind of have to find

locations and friends to
play with and teachers.

But then, imagine you
have a culture to move in.

Imagine you have a community
and you meet regularly.

And it supports that
and you do it together.

We are social beings.

And movement, it cannot be separated

from the structure that occupies it

and the cultural context around it.

So for me, that was obvious.

We need a tribe.

(light music)

Oh the pressures.

Oh the cameras or the friends.

Oh the egos.

Oh the reputations.

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.

Oh what’s next?

Oh I’m pressurised.

Oh I’ve never done this in
front of blah, blah, blah.

Oh the sun.

Oh the floor.

The cracks in the floor.

Oh the repetition.

Oh I forgot what I want to do.

Excellent, thank you.

She just does it, she can do it.

You ask yourself, can you do it?

Or what are you teaching?

What are you doing?

You can do a perfect handstand.

It’s time to walk with a
handstand, you can do it.

It’s easier.

But it shows you how addicted you are

through the form of practise.

(light upbeat music)

– Look at my best trick,
I’m going to do it now.

This is my best trick, are you ready?

Where’s the camera?

Are you ready?

It’s my best trick.

And now, I’m

when do you do that?

When, now?

There is a crowd.

Wait, they’re not looking.

It’s never comes, there
is not this moment.

It’s a delusion.

You never have your best performance

in the right moment, so guess what?

Start to perform every
moment of your life.

This is it.

That’s the performance now.

Now we’re moving, but what happens?

This doesn’t seem like the real thing.

When is it?

Is it tomorrow?

When or what are you waiting for?

Because you give 70%,
hence I think for myself.


It’s not his true capacity,
his potential is unfulfilled.

Tomorrow it will happen.

No the next, next year.

Next year I will be really good.

These are the people who
never reach the mark.

They’re never good because they
didn’t take the opportunity

to be good inside the toilet taking a crap

in those moments.

Every moment, now perform.

Do it with the maximal seriousness.

I drop a ball and I try
to catch it, I’m there.

I’m not disrespecting the situation

because that’s it.

That’s the performance.

You don’t have to wait
until you’re 70, 80, 90

to realise, oh shit,
yeah I missed the mark.

It was all performative moments.

And it was a life not well lived.

I didn’t go.

I didn’t go with it.

I didn’t use what I could.

Anyways, now it doesn’t matter.

You know this moment, nah
and now it doesn’t matter.

I don’t wanna say this.

I don’t wanna fall into this trap.

So I give you a stage.

Whether the camera is here, Brian is here,

(speaks foreign language) how do you say?

(man speaks off mic)


– The fear of God in you.


We say in Hebrew, do it
with the fear of God.

So like, the stick falls,

not because the camera is there,

’cause every day it’s
the same fucking thing.

I don’t wanna drop the fucking stick.

You wanna touch my shoulder,
I wanna touch your shoulder.

I don’t want you to touch my shoulder.

So if I fight it, I stop it, I go with it.

I go with the emotional content.

I go with the breath.

I go with the vocalisation.

You hear it, ha, pow, pow, pow!

Pow, pow, pow!

Pow, pow, pow, pow!

There is no camera but I’m
there with full intent.

And then someone else is playing.

(goofy laughing)


You’ve mistaken the playful approach

for a shitty approach.

It’s a shitty, playful approach.

You can have a serious, playful approach.

You can have a shitty, playful approach.

But being playful doesn’t
mean you don’t do it full on

serious ’til you bleed.

(mesmerising music)

(soft music)

– I’ve been thinking about,
you know the last few days here

and, you know I travel
all the way to Israel

to learn about movement
and learn about my body,

but it feels like I’ve
gotten a lesson in people.

I was spending time with
you and your community

and they really welcomed
me in like I was family.

And it’s been blatantly obvious to me.

I walked into your Movement
centre and the energy in there

and the energy in there,
there’s something about it.

And there was a guy two metres tall,

two meter-wide wingspan, one
of the most incredible athletes

I’ve ever seen before,

next to a 50 year old woman with no legs,

next to a nine-year old girl,

next to a veteran

who has probably got shrapnel scars

from jumping on a terrorist attacker.

But yet, there’s this kind
of energy and love in there

that it’s hard to explain.

I was wondering if you
could explain to me,

is this the Movement Culture
you’re talking about?

– I think it’s related to
many different players.

Part of it is the Movement
practise, part of it is the

the teachers who are
teaching in that centre

and the energy that they
attract this community.

This is something that will
really last through our lives

because the rest of it

is more temporary, you know
our bodies get destroyed.

We are social creatures.

It’s not happening alone on some mountain.

You’re not gonna become the
person that you want to be,

you’re not going to make it.

You’re not going to
develop the skill sets.

You’re not gonna develop
your self, you need people.

(gentle lilting music)

– Ido is a genius.

He’s a crazy person.

He’s an artist.

He’s a thinker.

He’s a philosopher.

He’s a good friend.

He’s the best teacher I know.

He’s a practitioner.

He’s now talented in many things.

He’s a hard worker.

And I think this combination

is something very rare and special.

I always tell him, like I
never met someone like you.

You’re just some weird
like entity (chuckles)

just a special combination of things.

(gentle upbeat music)

– [Brian] For a nomad, Ido
has built a very big family.

Full of people who have
connected with themselves

and with each other.

I wonder how the world would
look if everyone did this.

Sounds like a place I wanna be.

(light upbeat music)

I’ve lived in London for over 17 years.

But something feels
different on my return.

I see things in a new way.

I see challenges.

I see purpose.

I see humanity.

I see myself.

You can call me crazy, but I
know how we can save the world.

We start by saving our own bodies.

Movement makes us human.

It connects us to our higher self.

Movement is life.

You might say, this is not for me.

But you have a body, right?

You know what to do.

(dramatic upbeat music)

I have a technical question: I want to download episodes to watch it later when I’m off-grid again.
Is there a way? I’m also ready for some trickery if there’s no easy way to do that 🙂

Any tipps are much appreciated.


Massive like!!!! thoughts I had about exercise and questions make 1000% sense now!!
Thank you for that


I Love the ending. Get upon that bar and freak out those non-movers. Great show. Well done.


I truly appreciate all the work that goes into these videos. This is very inspiring. Thank you so much!


does anyone know the last song (the scene in london)?


Weval – Intro

Kyle Robert
Kyle Robert

Simply a life changing Video! I have always felt this primitive desire to move in an abnormal and tribal/ strange way, “strange” according to our typical cultural standards and single-planed classification. Where has the transverse, frontal and sagittal dance and integration that makes us original and pulls us back into our bodies gone. Where has this energy that we have built up through millions of successfully lived lives and through successful adaptation and changes to our natural condition and our natural world gone- perhaps it has gone no where, it is still contained in us; but it shows it self… Read more »

Conrado Niehues

I did the subtitles in portuguese (br) in the youtube video, waiting to be release.

Mario Menezes

Aqui não posso ver legendas em português. é possível disponibilizar no youtube? thanks

Florian Pensec

The music in intro is Aphex Twin – Stone In Focus, like it is sait in the comment here :

Breno Santana

is there any way i can download it so i can make subtitles in english ?



Look up web browser extensions that can do it




That was awesome!! Definitely going to incorporate some of these practices and ideas into my program. I just found another piece to the puzzle. Thanks!


Absolutely needed, thank you very much! This is a prophetic content for the aquarian shift. I’m really happy to know Ido Portal is playing and moving around. To me, this are basic male principles, the male in us who need to move, the male oppressed by screens, chairs and design. The male confined in fight and labor. The real forgotten male energy is reappearing because needed. Speed, flexibility, strengtheners, resilience, lucidity, game and joke (playful serious ones!). Thank you very much for this wonderful free production. It is with tremendous respect I suggest introducing water elements in the practice.

is there any way i can download it so i can make subtitles in polish for ppl in my country ?

or maybe i can make polish subs and you would add them here to the video player ?


its my new acc. plz answer my question brian ;D

Petr Ruzicka

I’ve have subtitles in Czech, I would like to upload them as well. Do you know how to do it now or still no answer?


Awesome awesome awesome awesome awesome. That was amazing and will be re-watched and re-watched until it’s been absorbed. Thank you thank you thank you, Ido, Brian and the LR team. xxxx


We’re glad you loved the episode! 🙂

Petr Ruzicka

Maria, where could I upload Czech subtitles so watchers could choose them? I have it already. thanks


Hi Petr, you can submit time-stamped Czech subtitles to [email protected]. 🙂

Petr Ruzicka

I’ve send an email right now. Thanks


Thank you, Petr! 🙂

Petr Ruzicka

So I did it 5 months ago and nothing happened. Is there any way we could make it? Thanks


This is one of the best docus I watched on the internet. Have a feeling that in one year I can come back and say this has changed my life! Thanks Brian!


Thank you for sharing your thoughts and for all the great feedback!
The London Real team is delighted that this movie clip has touched your lives one way or another.


I am new to Ido Portal . This is Great ! I love Challenges that improve my well being . Just what I needed and what everybody needs even though they don’t know it .


Amazing to capture his message and his movement culture in this way. I’m new to Ido Portal, but not new to capoeira, dance and an ever sustained fascination with movement of my body and its possibilities. I once had a similar dream, to teach movement, but motherhood became my focus for the last 17 years. I’m immensely grateful that another human being, like a warrior is bringing forth the vital importance of movement. Excellent work! A timeless and priceless contribution for people, although you should charge for this production someday! It would be worth owning for anytime reference.

Carles Terol Sánchez

This is an amazing job, great documentary!

Anyone has the complete tracklist with the songs that you can listen in the background?

Great work, both of you. After decades of training in several martial arts and in athletics I simply have to say: I could not find one single thought of Ido, that I would disagree with. He’s doing an amazing work, especially in motivating and inspiring so many people. The same for you Brian: I really appriciate you, not only for your work, but for the way you’re doing it. One can feel the passion, the open mind, the curiosity. To say it in Ido’s words: You never left the playground or, at least, you’ve joined it again. The results are… Read more »


Brian, Thank you for sharing this beautifully done movie. So tough to capture who this man is in such a short period of time. I loved your comment at the end about how you ‘went searching to learn more about movement, but found that your learned more about people’. Isn’t that what life is about? Connection with others. Getting the most (best) out of yourself. Allowing those you connect with to challenge you to bring out more in yourself than you thought you could. These things resonated in me throughout the movie. Ido is an amazing man. He has, no… Read more »


This is simply amazing. Thank you so much for the insights! Great Production. As a Personal Trainer Ido Challenges my Approaches i teach my Clients and especially myself.


Wow. So I FINALLY got round to watching this after a long time and I knew it would be great. First I would like to write a short review about the main part of the documentary – Just Move, whilst also processing through my thoughts by writing this. This is also a message to Ido, providing insight into some of my beliefs. I hope it makes it’s way through to him somehow through this virtual network that mankind has built that we call – the Internet! Right, so let’s begin! I loved how Ido spoke about presenting a new perspective… Read more »


Greatest line in the movie (for me): “fearlessness is worth chasing more than happiness”.

Great captivation of what it means to move in unique and healthier ways. opens up to the mind to what is happening in our moveless society. MOVE MORE with intense play:)


Another awesome documentary! Loved the ending Brian haha amazing stuff!

Fazel Ali

Awesome and inspiring. Can’t wait to take my moving to another level on my return from holiday!

a life changing way of seing ourselves and conectting to our own existence.thanks for this

Feiyue orginals, I am almost positive. Very popular shoes for parkour

Nicolas Olea

I know it is probably a stupid question to ask, but does anyone knows the model of the white and blue adidas shoes that ido is wearing?? I know he is very minimalistic when it comes to shoes and so am I.

Feiyue orginals, I am almost positive. Very popular shoes for parkour

Nicolas Olea

Thank you!!


They are actually an old school adidas sala soccer sneaker. The closest thing to them now would be the Janeirinha Sala. Everyone else is wearing the Feiyue.


Addidas Indoor Super

STR/KE MVMNT has thee most well-rounded shoes, for any mover, in my opinion.

Adrian Alberts

Thank you so much for making and sharing this amazing movie with all of us 🙂

Excellent! Most inspiring movie of any film I’ve seen in years!


Ido, Brian, thank you.

Subtitulos en español porfavor! pull ups!!

Amazing, I wish Ido came to Argentina once


This was very inspiring, I am from Venezuela and i have a very small community moving towards the expansion of a movement culture as well, i will defenetly show this to my friends… Can anyone tell me the name of the song on 1:07:00 when Odelia is describing Ido .. i makes me want to dance/Move..!!!


Video kept crashing…
Love London Real and Ido…amazing video as all of LRA I’ve seen so far. Congrats and keep it up


Great movie, just makes me wanna move now!


I’m feeling so inspired by this, I’ve always been a mover but now I wanna move more, move better and never stop!!!
Is there any community in London practicing this yet?

Amazing, Now I’m gonna move.

Thankyou sirs you’re doing beautiful things and I finished this with a warm and beautiful feeling


Sweet, I also loved the ending!

James Stewart

Thank you so much. Great interview! Even better than I expected! And I couldn’t wait for this one!


Wonderful movie and tribute about movement, the movement culture and Ido Portal. Thank you Brian and London Real

Saman Tabai

Thank you for your kind comments 🙂 Please fill free to share the video with other people!


Man I wish Ido had a movement center here in Los Angeles

Saman Tabai

Maybe he will one day 🙂 fingers crossed

Amazing, everybody should watch this movie to open their eyes!

Saman Tabai

I couldn’t agree more 🙂

Amazing, eveybody should watch this movie to open their eyes!


Thank you Brian and Ido. That was so powerful. After 50 years of training with weights, practicing martial arts and boxing, it’s now when I have awken to know about my body. A little too late for me but as long as i’m alive, i will keep learning and moving.

Saman Tabai

That’s the spirit! 🙂 We just got to keep moving 🙂

Where can i find the music from this film?


Love This! Just move because you can

Ben Chaib

Love this! So much to learn and it is so true that once we don’t have it (body parts, abilities, or anything we take for granted) we want it back and at that time it may be too late… so cherish it now, take care of it… use it or lose it as they say…

Great job Brian, Ido and crew

Saman Tabai

Thank you sharing your thoughts Ben 🙂

Marco Moeschter

Great movie, it gave me a lot of insights and inspiration. Ido is great motivation, and I hope his philosophy is spreading wide.

Saman Tabai

Thank you for your kind words 🙂 Please fill free to share the movie with other people you know.


this resonates with me on so many levels. breaking the fear.

LoLo Adi Parashakti

Thank you. This is so powerful. Such a great sharing of a different perspective.

ThePac4life .

Thank you.


Amazing!! Thank you.


Fantastic 🙂

best wishes to you ALL from us



That was incredible. Great production Brian!



Wow! Put together very well with the narrative! Loved this, it’s awakening, & the philosophy of Ido Portal’s mind/body connection is revelatory. Want to find a tribe near me!

Owen Jackson

It contextualised the movement weekend beautifully. A great message and reflection on our time. Ido’s mind message and approach are fascinating. Great job LR team


This was incredible! Thank you Ido, and Brian.

Martins Indans

Powerful. When you will interview Conor McGregor?

Mike R Looney

Thank you both and every part of your movement


This film is great work. Thanks to both of you for making it happen! I’ll be watching it for a third and probably fourth time very soon.

Simply brilliant on so many levels! DJ

Filipe Sousa

woow amazing film, thank you brian and ido


Thank you brian and ido. This is truly inspirational. Hope to be part of a movement camp sometime.


I love Ido’s ideas and point of view on things that matter the most for us as human beings its very inspirational for me to….. MOVE MORE! 😀


Beautiful doc, thank you Brian.

Thank You So Much Brian for making this movie and sharing it with us all, and thank you Ido for being such a great inspiration.I knew there was something missing in my world and finding that it is the connection within myself and my body, Wow ,great way to get out of ones head.

Gabriel Jianu

One of the most inspirational documentaries I’ve seen in a long time! After a few minutes of watching I started feeling bad for sitting down, so I switched to a squat position instead. 🙂

Wow ! You really did a good job here. I’ve followed Ido’s socialmedia-things since 2013something after coming over this beautifully done youtube video where he showed of his skills ‘n strength. Still, I’ve thought that he’s quite full of him self on the point it was a bit tasteless for me. But this showed a different guy. Thank you 🙂 I will rethink these thoughtpatterns.

Great film. I love Ido and his movement culture. You should check out Darryl Edwards at He is in London also and has wonderful playouts in London and around the world. Lots of fun and very challenging.

Abdón Urbina Camejo

Great stuff loved, thanks for put it out there to everyone

Love it!



be fearless! such great lessons

Great work, Brian. Both of you are inspiring. The biggest lesson to me is that we have so much within us but neglect it because it’s easier to live how we are told. Be fearless in discovering yourself…

Liked it a lot! He’s also quite the salesman. Guess snake oil turned out to be good for the body after all. What’s even more important is to find your own rhythm, even Ido gets in the way. Blessed be thou.

Daniel Vodrazka

Epic! Love it Brian, thanks a lot for putting the work in and sharing this !!


Awesome film; Move it or lose it!

Thanks Brian, great film!

Julien Maydew

Beautiful and powerful message, thanks a lot!


I struggle with internet in my area. So frustrating ! Can we download the video ?

Massimo Marchi

An awesome job Brian. Kudos!


Beautifully Done Brian.. !!!

Ido, I just love your philosophy. Just wow. !!!

This was amazing! loved it

Hayden Gladstone

Wow.. When Ido was talking at 102:00. “Start to perform in every moment of your life. There is no perfect time.” Just brilliant. I don’t know what to say about the man, he is certainly special. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for putting this together Brian (and team). Now.. go and move damn it!

Mahalo, from Maui, beautiful video. I’m going to the park right now and “move”


YES! What a great film! Definitely love it. Great production team, Brian. Yeah, and that last scene – golden. Way to go, crazy man!

Thank you so much for putting this out! Incredibly inspiring to see the truth at its origin.

Carl Bryce

Great work. Great message. Very Inspiring. Thank you.


This is a superb insight into Ido’s movement culture and his philosophies. Brilliantly put together by London Real – great job!
As a physiotherapist I try to apply Ido’s philosophies and empower them with movement!

Michal Zuber

Epic end. Great job Brian. Thanks Ido for sharing 😉


Thank you Brian for giving me the opportunity to view this. You have done something amazing by showing us a different view of why we exist . I will see this over and and over again and I will share this wonderful message.

I really really like it!!! wonderful work!! congratulations to both of you Ido and Brian, you are two wonderful beings.


Another great movie and some wonderful insights, and a tip of the hat to Moshi Feldenkrais. Deep thanks to Brian and the team #movementmatters


Spending time with Ido has changed my life. Amazing work

Chen Yanki

The world needs to see it. understand what we’re missing out on all our lives.
One of the most powerful films I ever saw in my life!

Andreasfaidwn Andreou

Well done Brian, well done. Beautiful ,,,


Any chance of downloading this video?


I’m afraid not 🙂

Alex Tighe

Any chance of getting some subtitles on this for the deaf community? Thanks.


Good idea. We’re looking into it 🙂

David Whitehead

awesome brian


Lovely – is Roye really 2m tall?

Alexander Pollock

Made me cry because I feel this is what life is all about yet few of us MOVE

Fantastic work! I really liked it! Ido is a great teacher that we can all relate to. I am a trainer working with mostly corporate people and movement is certainly something that needs to be worked on. The majority of people are hypomobile, overweight and unfit. They don’t play anymore. They’ve lost their instinct with movement. They lost their trust. If I cannot change their body composition due to bad eating habits but can improve the way they move, well I’m happy with that. Ido’s philosophies and ideas are unreal. Love the guy and love that you brought him up… Read more »

Brian you did it mate!



Roel Jacobs

Use it or lose it!!! Or just do IT!!!

Assuming that you’re logged in with Facebook then try again with another browser or internet device 🙂

Wellington Johan Lagos Rodrigues

Thank you Ido and Brian for this amazing documentary. Time to start moving my body more and more. Seen you in the future ??


Great docu, that outro os sooo well done!
Very clear and inspiring message that we need to move and move consciously, functional and in a fun way.
Thanks for doing this and keep it up!

Martin Holek

Thank you Brian. It was live changing video

Eshank Panchal



Beautiful, simple, true, inner, sensations
Body, live !!
Amazing, i love

Corinne Barnes

Thank you, Brian! This was fascinating to get a glimpse into Ido’s world & mind! Great video! Thankful to my son, John Barnes for opening my world to movement (& Ido Portal)! I may be “old” but I can move! Thank you!



Shawn Barbisan

Thank you Brian and everyone at Londonreal. You have made a ground breaking film! Thank you Ido and the movement culture. Just like the different workshops of Ido’s, it’s just a taste of the small cupcake that is movement.
Thank you!

Chuck Kechter

Very well done! Thank you for the glimpse behind the curtain!

Filip Todoroski

holly shit!!!!! great work here

Alexander Karpushin

It’s more than amazing! Thank you for the inspiration. What is the music playing in the intro?


Fantastic film! Ido is an inspiration.


SUCCESS is a wrong orientation,
Being FEARLESS is the better approach!

Thank you for all this treasure!

Norman Quednau

This film moved me to tears. This is it. Being alive. Moving. Connecting. Being a family.



Zen mind !

Joel Russell

Great film Brian, much appreciated, thanks for sharing.


To everyone who’s enjoyed this documentary, you can watch our episode ‘A Moving Conversation’ with Ido Portal right here!


Wow. What a life changing video! I plan to share with my tribe of friends and family. I also plan to MOVE more. Thank you for this beautiful story of Ido.


How long have you been able to hold the handstand Brian? Did Ido teach you?

AnAnonymousObject .

15 minutes in and I have to leave to find a rail; truly inspiring!



Thanks Brian for bringing this on Film. This Documentary is truly awsome!!!! KeepMoving

Matheo Galatis

Phenomenal! This is a masterpiece!

Markus Hochwimmer

Just amazing! Thank you so much for sharing it to the world!!!

Wow, what a fantastic documentary! Very well done, thought provoking and incredibly inspiring! Bravo!

Thales Souza

Amazing! Thanks for that!

Tomas Mendoza

The best

Federico E.

This movie of Ido has made me remember this Nietzsche quote:

“A man’s maturity: that is to have rediscovered the seriousness he possessed as a child at play.”

Thank you so much!

So inspirational.


PS: It would be awesome if Ido document some techniques/methods/ideas in a book, or sort of program.


Great Movie! I practice Ido Portal’s movement culture in Brasil (Pratique Movimento). However, I’m moving to Mexico (Mexico City) and I hope to find some movement community over there. Long life to this ideal and let’s move.


Increíble trabajo, increíble video. Tenia tiempo esperando que hicieras mas trabajo con Ido. Excelente motivación e inspiración! Espero que no sea lo ultimo.
Me encanto el final!!!. Saludos desde México.


Thank you for the incredible documentary. Ido’s lesson’s refuse to disappoint and continues to keep my practice on track. Thanks Brian!

Sam Coppack

Such a surge of feeling after watching this. Thank you Brian. Thank you Ido.
A wonderful production!

Dimitrije Berić

Brian, this was incredible, I wish it lasted longer. If it was 10 hours long I’d skip tonight’s sleep, that’s how good it was.

Fabrice Liut

THX YOU ! It’s time to make people move more, to move our world to a better way of living ! I need to put movement culture in Lyon, France !

Mika Bator

This is beautiful! Love it. Thank You 🙂


Amazing movie ! Thank you London Real and Thank you Ido Portal. Inspiring as fuck, loved it. Well edited, good music, good job guys. +1 for the movement culture


Excellent…makes you wanna move! ?

thank you for sharing this doc, Mr Brian & the crew, as already written by others, it was interesting to watch, very well shot, produced, I like also how the music fits… again Mr Ido showed and said really precious ‘stuff’, he reminds me of the book I read recently – “The way of Chuang Tzu” – if you’re into tao then I recommend it to you it’s right, the more I learn about myself (by the way also dealing with anxiety/depression/mental confusion), the more obvious is the body&mind&world connection. although it’s obvious, it seems not to be so… or… Read more »

Truly inspiring. Loved it on many levels.

That was amazing. Well put together and definitely got the message across to the viewer. It has me feeling ignited and moved . To move !


Hi Brian!!! thank you very much for this movie… we just watched with my wife and in some way opened our minds…

Patrick Burke

Absolutely amazing !!!

Truly inspiring, loved it ?. Idos’ philosophy really resonates with me. Thank you!

Truly moving and inspiring… Great work, guys.. Congrats!!!

Nathan Abraham

This is the best 70 minutes of content London Real has produced. If Conor wins (Again) against Mayweather it will be partly because of the ‘movement culture’ installed in him over the past few years by Ido. Thank you for everyone involved in making this, its unprecedented.


Glad you liked it! Check out our interview with Ido here!

Aart-Jan Hak

Have been waiting for this movie ever when I first heard about it. And it is as great as I hoped it to be! Thank you Ido and Brian for making and sharing this!!


This second movie/doc of yours is INSANE!!!
It is beautifully shot, so well written and narrated, and the content is great.
Simply outstanding!!!

Thank you, Brian! Thank you, Ido!


I’m awake. Started moving with the movie. Yes, right with it. Nose to wall. Squats. Moving arms. I’m awake. Thank you so much! This is the journey. Now. Thank you!

Olga Olga

loved the movie. Brian – NEXT LEVEL!!!


Thank you for such an inspiring movie! Ido’s philosophy and way of thinking can definitely change the world. Plus I am glad to learn a lot from this TEACHER


Very inspirational! Thank you for spreading this message.
