Capoeira tester workshop - for beginners

This is a capoeira workshop specifically designed for beginners. At the end of it you will be able to do the basic capoeira step called ‘ginga’ and you will know some of the most common kicks. We will also introduce you to some of the capoeira music. At the end of it you will be able to put your skills in practice in a traditional ‘roda’ where you will be playing with other workshops participants.

You will probably not be able to do all the acrobatics and jumps that you can see in the video, at least not straight away (;p), but if you like it – you will be able keep on training and eventually you will get there.

 

The workshop will be designed and delivered by professor Polegar from a group called ‘Capoeira Nagô’ specifically for our adventure club. He is an amazing capoeirista with 18 years’ experience and he is well known in the Capoeira world.

So if you have always wanted to try it but were not confident enough to join a regular class with all the advanced students, this will be a safe space in which you can test it and decide whether you like it.

If you are unsure what capoeira is, please follow the links to the videos.

This is one of my favourite ones on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vwG7JwXtUSI

And in this one you can see professor Polegar in action: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRNifdkm62Q

Please let me know if you have any questions.

What to wear: comfortable sportswear. Shoes are not required, however if you choose to wear them please make sure they are lightweight and comfortable.

How long is the workshop: the first hour will be for beginners only, in the second one we will be joined by regular students. This way you will be able to do a little bit of everything and will get the best possible exposure to Capoeira.
