I cannot imagine what a person with no prior training could get from 3 hours of Capoeria, beside a little about how to Ginga and maybe a Martello or two, certainly not Meilua de Compass.

Best wishes,

James (AKA Cabirro), student of Mestre Acordeon (Bira Alemeda).

January 23rd and 30th for ages 12 - 100 years old @ 2:30 pm for one hour and a half each day. Join us for this amazing art form with a special guest, Joao Bordallo. Capoeira is a martial art/dance/fight that originated in Brazil over 400 years ago. Brought to Brazilian plantations by African slaves, it emerged out of traditional movements and musical rhythms. Symbolic of liberation and freedom,Capoeira has become an integral part of Brazilian culture.It is played by people of all ages and is gaining in popularityaround the world. Capoeira is played by smallgroups in rodas (circles). In the center of the roda two peopleplay together. One starts by asking a question in the formof a movement and their partner answers with a response movement. A constant flow is created between the players in harmony with the music being played and sung. The movements and pace of each game are guided by the rhythms of a one-stringed instrument called the berimbau. It is accompanied by a pandeiro(tambourine), agogo(cow bell), reco reco (bamboo scraper), and traditional Folk Songs of Afro-Brazilian culture.

Kind regards, James
Freedom is not a reaction; freedom is not a choice. ?It is man's pretense he has choice, he is free, ?Freedom is pure observation without direction, without fear of punishment and reward. ?Freedom is without motive; Freedom is not the end of man's evolution but lies in the first step of his existence. ?In observation one begins to discover the lack of freedom. ?Freedom is found in the choiceless awareness of out daily existence and activity.
