    • portal.idoA fight is a form of body to body communication.
      A corporal conversation of sort.

      Attack and defensive maneuvers are actually only a part of a bigger picture and will lose their effect if not organized properly.
      The best punchers/kickers in the world are not necessarily the best fighters out there, since there is MORE going on in 'between the lines' - those more elusive, harder to conceptualize aspects that should also be approached, practiced and refined if one is to be optimally prepared for a fight.

      Some exemplary aspects of the 'Language of the fight': *Techniques - a knowledge base, vocabulary or lexicon that allows one to answer and ask appropriate questions, comprehend, digest and react. It is based in collective knowledge - refinement through experience of generations *Principles - master keys opening many doors vs techniques which are a narrower scope answers to questions. A principle can manufacture techniques. Techniques can work/fail if following/not certain principles. An example of a principle can be 'Framing' - something that keeps reappearing in many ground and clinching techniques. Titling it, conceptualizing it and refining it will help a fighter make sense of totally new scenarios in a better way. *Movement Quality - pronunciation and articulation of the techniques and other movements - generally an area that traditional martial arts are more focused on but usually with a decreased focus on Aliveness, (A term created by Matt Thornton) reality-based practice, dealing with chaos and non-cooperative training. *Spatial, Timing and Composition Motion Skills - grammar and musicality, placement, displacement and the rhythm of the words / movement / techniques. An area more commonly present in the greats of boxing but even in MMA demonstrated by few unique fighters like Anderson Silva, Dominick Cruz and Conor Mcgregor.

      A fight is both a very specific scenario with great need of specialization and at the same time an unknown, present-unfolding general movement riddle with infinite parameters.
      I am of the belief general movement tools can benefit a fighter in the RIGHT dosages tremendously. #ufc202#conormcgregor #idoportal #movementculture

    It's amazing how one can build a brand by touching butts in the park.

    Ido said Conor is still a white belt in human movement. Imagine how dangerous he will become once he gets the yellow belt.


    He's going to be unlocking chakra gates like my ninja Rock Lee soon.

    Hope Conor is doing this for publicity and not because he believes this shit.

    Never go full Tom Cruise.
