Berimbau Bag in Shanghai: location corrections and changes

Maybe you already know about cheap berimbau bags in Shanghai, and here is updated information about it from our camara Birdie.

The address is 56 Lanxi Lu, not 55 Lanxi Lu, and the vendor number is 50.

There’s actually a better and faster way to get to the vendor: get out at FengQiaoLu (枫桥路) station […]

Press about us: “Rumbling with rhythm and rhyme”, Global Times

“Rumbling with rhythm and rhyme”, By Christian Lindberg.
Source: Global Times, November 19th 2010.

While kung fu can turn someone into a lethal weapon, it probably won’t do much for their dance moves. Fortunately for those hoping to add some swing to their self-defence there is the latest cultural export to explode out of Brazil: the indigenous martial art known as Capoeira. At a gym near Zhongshan Park you can find Capoeiristas practicing this acrobatic martial art. Every Saturday the doors of the gym are open to those who want to give this unique sport which combines music, dancing and self-defense a try. Currently there are around 40 men and women from all over the world taking part in Capoeira Mandinga Shanghai.

From Gata with Love

My lovely capoeiristas!!

Thank you so much to be with me and appear in such a right moment of my life in China. Capoeira is like life philosophy which actually doesnt teach you what to do but leads you somehow into a right way.

And even though we dont know what is right or wrong way capoeira […]

Olele! Batizado升级考试来了,你准备好了吗?

最近我们都为了一年一度的BATIZATO奋战呢,也是我和刁哥头回参加,OPA OPA 🙂

每次BATIZATO之前,大当家都会请一些contra mestre来上海给我们集训一下,这次是墨西哥的CIPO老师,老师会和我们讲很多capoeira的故事和为什么要做这个动作,这些动作名字的由来,感觉就像是capoeira的文化课,所以对我们这些不是特别了解capoeira历史的学生来说能够更多的了解capoeira还是很开心的,特别现在上海本地的学生越来越多了,也是很好的趋势啊,大家OPA OPA 😉

Capoeira – You will like it!


其实肯定会有90%以上的人不知道CAPOEIRA为何物,简单的说CAPOEIRA在巴西的受热爱程度和大小皆知程度相当于中国功夫的地位,也是很厉害的哦,而且我都不知道该如何介绍这个运动亦或是舞蹈亦或是功夫技巧亦或是体操或者杂技之类的, 呵呵~~~~只有自己去看相关的视频才能了解更多,这里小的建议各位有兴趣的可以百度或者土豆一下,会真的喜欢上哦,如果你真的很感兴趣的话,哈哈~~~~~

是我现在就学的CAPOEIRA SHANGHAI的网站,有关的简单介绍都可以从里面得知,当然了里面也有相关的音乐,图片和视频也包括我哦,最近小的在勤学苦练8个月后拿到CAPOEIRA的最初级腰带,尽管是最最初级的,但是我仍然很高兴,因为我的辛苦和努力没有白费,当然还包括我家麻球,我们都拿到腰带了哦,这个是身份的象征啊,哈哈~~~~~

Miss train but not roda…

Kunshan capoeira trip. Should be at 9am, but train had not been waiting for me.

Even though it started later for me, I did not miss the main thing – RODA.

Special roda. Our strong team of capoeira beginners got the light green belts.

Open air, smell of green grass and genius capoeristas made this trip very cool.
