Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art form that mixes music, dance and gymnastics with its fighting components. Its beauty, fluidity and explosive gravity-defying movements have taken the world by storm. Capoeiristas can be found in movies, television ads, music concerts (Cantonese pop star Denise Ho hired Axe Capoeira’s Professor Berimbau to choreograph a Hong Kong show), and video games (Capoeira Mandinga’s founder, Mestre Marcelo, was the model for Tekken’s Eddie Gordo – one of the greatest video game characters of all time).

2009 has been another good year for our group. A lot of people have left Shanghai but a lot of new students have started training.We also lost our gym but found a new one, warmer and cleaner.
We had two great workshops with CM Espeto, two great months with Istrutora Bolacha and Biscoito, and a massive Batizado with Mestre Marcelo, Mestre Cabello, CM Jô and CM Carcará.
Start thinking about your goals for next batizado (Sept.2010).

This saturday after our massive O’Malley show, Chupa Teta and I are going to collect pictures you may have taken during Batizado/workshop so please bring your camera/SD card/usb flash drive and give us your nicest (we will have a laptop).
We will sort the pictures and post it on the website, for sure the more picture we have the better the selection will be!
Just to remind everyone that this Saturday (17th of October) we are participating at the Sport Fair at O’Malley.
It’s from 11am to 4pm, we need a couple of people to be there at 11:00am. At 3:00pm there will be a capoeira roda so everyone should try to be there on time ok? After we will move to our gym for regular class.
