Close friends are truly life's treasures. Sometimes they know us better than we know ourselves. With gentle honesty, they are there to guide and support us, to share our laughter and our tears. Their presence reminds us that we are never alone. 🦋 | @natasha_nikolaeva_ and I stretching out at @premier57spa ✨ Premier57 is one of our favorite places in all of NYC to relax and unwind. #premier57spa #premier57 #newyorkcity #iloveny #spaday #spa #bestfriends #friendship

Balance is a complex attribute that is comprised of many other smaller attributes.
I've often seen people declare 'he has great balance' but judging from one situation in which balance is demonstrated I'd we wary of making such big claims.
I've often seen how an elite surfer fails to keep balance in a situation that contains a fixed surface (and hence a different reflex profile) and an uncooperative partner. You'll get a similar issue with placing a fighter on a surfboard or both in Ballet trying to do pirouettes. Good luck!

Balance is a HUGE attribute and for those interested to develop a general grasp of it, there is a need of wide and consistent exposure to diverse challenges over years.
In the picture I'm working with @thenotoriousmma on yet another balance situation - out of many we've tackled over the last few years, this time specific to the boxing stance and utilizing a partner that tries to challenge the structure in a very specific way. The result, if enough time is devoted to this drill is an understanding of when and where one should CONNECT or DISCONNECT various areas of the body in order not to lose your position. This is not the final progression as balance in fighting is 90% dynamic and allows the repositioning of the points of support. I've been utilizing hundreds of variations over the years to EDUCATE my students about balance.

Note the word 'educate' as I believe 'training balance' in its full scoop is an misnomer.

Two in one class! Congratulations to Adriane and Chad on getting their first muscle-ups.
Gymnastic strength is only a small portion of he work we focus on, yet we consistently see this type of progress from our students. This is a direct result of our methodology and our student's work ethic.

What comes to mind, comes out.

Flexibilty over strength. Why? Because flexibility and mobility will help you not just in your daily life, but also in your strength training.
How? Flexibility and mobility allows you to get into optimal positions and execute movements in ways where you are testing the strength of your muscles and not the integrity of your joints. It also prevents injury by giving you the awareness of any weaknesses you may have in your muscle groups so you will not compensate by overworking and straining other dominant muscle groups during exercises.

How often do you work on your flexibility? 😜

Don't let your movement box shrink! 😁

@londonrealtv @portal.ido After watching the fantastic documentary on Ido Portal by London Real I was totally blown away by the philosophy and attitude shown to movement and Martial Arts...Ido described people who don't move, or couch potatos as 'Homer Simpsons', that made me laugh..inside every Homer Simpson is a Bruce Lee waiting to get out!...either that or they just imagine being Bruce Lee after a few beers 😀🍻🍺 If you haven't watched the documentary it's called 'Just Move', it's awesome!

“I came across Republic of Movement classes, doing things like gymnastic strength training, locomotion, martial arts, tactical games, body/mind riddles, odd forms of meditation, and coordination drills. Yeah, quite interesting right? Fast forward 3 years... I'm now putting on many hats. Working on my one arm handstand, one arm chin-ups, handstand push-ups, gymnastics ring routines, juggling tennis balls (and other forms of object manipulation), organic strength, mobility drills, & Ido Portal's locomotion!” - Kevin Staples, student and dear friend.

Umm, om? ... I don't really do a lot of handstand work these days, but sometimes the sun is shining, the tank is clean, and, why not play around. #idoportalmethod

UNKNOWN//. It's a funny thing; the idea of jumping into the unknown. Whether that be into water, a new opportunity or in this case the thin air that always sits behind you.. 😲 •

I mean, if it's there 24/7, why should we not make use of it? Because it's scary! 😧 •

There in lies the beauty. The beauty in searching for freedom. FEAR. UNKNOWNS. LEARNING. ✨ •

Ido really hit home a few special points with his new piece #justmove even though most were not new areas for most already aware of the culture. I do really hope it touches people further and wider; encouraging others from all walks of life. 🙏 • 📸 - @malikk.davis

Sometimes going back to nature helps me to focus more on my movements and for some reason I always feel stronger. The planche felt way easier than it usually does.

So this week I have been travelling with work but still managed to find a way of getting in some handstand holds to keep up the momentum #travel #followmyjourney #fitness #instapost #idoportal #idoportalmethod #calisthenics #bodyweighttraining #progress #fighting #thesultanfitness #newyork

Nou best wel lekker hoor. De handstand gaat steeds beter. Het leuke aan filmpjes is, dat je kan zien waar puntjes zijn van verbetering. zoals iets meer mijn bekken kantelen en chest is. Maar hij gaat steeds beter. Dus training gaat vooruit. #lekkerhetweekendin
