  • (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.

  • Ido.

  • - 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.

  • Play.

  • (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.

  • Athletes.

  • Yogis.

  • Dancers.

  • Gymnasts.

  • Circus performers.

  • And fighters.

  • He studied Nutrition.

  • Health.

  • Anatomy.

  • Physiology.

  • 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.

  • Breathing.

  • Any form of mind-body connection.

  • (reflective music)

  • Boom, one.

  • Two.

  • Balance.

  • Feel it.

  • Place.

  • Balance, feel it.

  • Down.

  • 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.

  • (laughs)

  • 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.

  • Breathe.

  • 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.

  • Nice.

  • Nice.

  • Nice.

  • Stop.

  • Go back one step.

  • Uh-huh, you're good.

  • Okay, we'll do the descent.

  • Put the right foot, squat down slowly.

  • (yells)

  • (chuckles)

  • 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
