Ido Portal is the legendary Israeli movement artist who has traveled the world teaching the Ido Portal Method.
A previous London Real guest, Just Move is London Real’s documentary about Ido Portal; watch him exclusively talk about his practices and work with the likes of Conor McGregor who describes his approach as one that ensures that “you don’t just have control over your body, you have control over your mind”.
As well as training McGregor right before he went on to knock out José Aldo in 13 seconds and become the undisputed UFC World Champion, Ido has inspired a “paradigm shift” in how people see movement practices, leading to a new community and culture around this innovative view of mind, body and spirit.
In this, our feature-length film, see Ido and London Real founder and host Brian Rose explore topics including links between our mental and physical presences, bravery and how Ido’s unorthodox way of working has helped influence a generation of people interested in movement.
Whether you’re interested in concepts such as the lizard crawl or why Ido’s practices are about “more than just handstands”, this inspirational film offers a window into the world of movement culture and beyond.
