IDO is part of the first generation of Capoeiristas that started the whole scene in Israel. He has been training Capoeira for over 10 years, and he represents group Cordao de Ouro under the supervision of Mestre Suassuna. His direct teacher is Contra Mestre Idan Harrari who studied under Mestre Daniel Sela - the founder of Capoeira in Israel. A couple of years ago Ido created his own training center in Haifa, Israel called 'Hacasa' - 'The Home'. It is really a home for Capoeira, Acrobatics, physical training and other activities for children, women and men ( Ido’s research helps him to have a better understanding of things around him and a better control and understanding of art, mental abilities, spirit and the physique. This research has led to a wealth of knowledge on nutrition, psychology, strength training, flexibility and stretching, rhythm and music, drama, and much more.

Workshop Descriptions

Basic Equilibrium Workshop
This workshop is designed to teach the foundation for the basic static balancing on two hands and developing a better understanding of the manipulation of body mass in various positions - Handstand (gymnastics), Elbow-Lever (Gymnastics), Queda de Rins (Capoeira), Air Baby (Breakdance). Preparatory work for the One Arm Handstand will also be covered.

Prerequisite: None. No prior knowledge is required. Basic handstand is a plus.
VIRES - Bodyweight and Gymnastics Oriented Strength and Conditioning Workshop
A combination of Joint Mobility, Strength, Flexibility, Power and Endurance through Gymnastics oriented exercises and other body-weight systems implemented into a challenging workout. Use your own body-weight, the floor, gravity and elastic bands in order to improve a wide array of physical markers. Geared towards people who work with their body - dancers, martial artists, movers from all kinds and normal people interested in improving fitness through challenging natural and safe mediums.

Prerequisite:There is no need for prior knowledge/ability for this workshop.
FlOREIO Art Workshop
Floreio Art is a movement modality using the principle of flow in order to create a form of acrobatic artistic expression, moving close to the ground while using every part of your body. Floreio is an art form that allows advanced practitioners to create their own movements, sequences and find their individual flows, but while using a non conventional set of skills. The practitioner will find himself on his hands, elbows, crawling close to the ground or spinning on his head. Great improvement of strength, endurance, balance and mobility in an organic, unlimited and natural fashion is a guaranteed side effect of Floreio Art practice. The creation of Floreio Art was influenced by many things - Capoeira, Acrobatics, Dance and Breakdancing, but in its purest sense, it is non of the above. Floreio Art was created and presented to the world by Ido Portal in 2009.

Prerequisite:There is no need for prior knowledge for this workshop, the material will be tailored specifically for beginners, intermediates and advanced movers.
