Saturday 26th there will also be our usual roda, after class we can go together somewhere for dinner.
Monday 28th and Tuesday29th regular classes.

No class on Thursday 31st.

Saturday 2nd of January first roda of the year 5:00-6:30.

Starting from the 4th of January we will follow our regular schedule.


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).

Oi Camaras,

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!

Muito Obrigado!
