Locomotion - Belgium

Locomotion - Level 1

This workshop concentrates around the gradual process-driven instruction of Ido Portal's movement language - Locomotion.

Locomotion is Ido's unique creation, a fluid, challenging, beautiful and rewarding movement system which relies on the use of low gait, squatting, inverting,

crawling, bridging, quadrupedaling and other patterns, integrated to a sophisticated multi layered flow close to the ground.

In Locomotion Ido brought together his influences in traditional Chinese martial arts, Capoeira, his work as an acrobat on stage.
and experience in various dance techniques as well as his personal insight into movement development.

Ido's Locomotion is comprised of over 1200 elements and keeps evolving daily as Ido, his team and students keep
on researching and refining more elements and their incorporation into the language.

Locomotion offers a great tool for strength development, true useable and active mobility, joint protection, metabolic
conditioning and expression.

The student will get exposure to these elements and concepts:
The now famous Ido Lizard Crawl, Low Lizard, Moon Lizard.
The crab, Delayed Crab, hovering crab and step inside crab.
The Rotational-L, High Rotational-L.
The Cross Step.

The Shinobi Step.
The Ape Gallop, Rotating Ape, Ape Sit, Ape Step.
