Capoeira is an Afro/Brazilian martial art which combines elements of self-defense, music, dance, acrobatics, history, and spirituality. The purpose of this meetup is to create a capoeira gathering which is: - free - stress-free - open to all ages and experience levels, beginners welcome - welcoming to practitioners of other martial arts - informal - outdoors My name is Pardal, I've been training capoeira for five years, and studying afro-brazilian religion and history for longer. I also have been a member of a performance acrobatics group, and an assistant gymnastics coach. Though I am organizing this meetup and I'm happy to teach what I know, this will be an unstructured get-together, not a formal class. Wear whatever is comfortable to work out in. Expect to train hard! If you have instruments (drums, pandieros, berimbaus etc...), please bring them. I'll bring mine!
