  1. We would like to invite you to our monthly open roda this Sunday (June 3rd). All the capoeiristas are welcome to join for free. Come play capoeira and music and sing with us! If you are interested, but haven't tried capoeira before, feel free to stop by and have a look! This will be a special roda with guets from other cities and groups Time: June 3rd (Sunday) 2:00 PM Meeting point: Yu Qian Temple scenic pier (near Bapanling road, West Lake) 于谦祠码头景区(近八盘岭路及杨公堤) What is the Roda? The Roda (pronounced "ho-dar") is a circle formed by capoeiristas and capoeira musical instruments, where every participant sings the typical songs and claps their hands following the music. Two capoeiristas enter the roda and play the game according to the style required by the musical instruments rhythm. The game finishes when one of the musicians holding a berimbau determine it, when one of the capoeiristas decide to leave or call the end of the game or when another capoeirista interrupts the game to start playing, either with one of the current players or with another capoeirista. In a roda every cultural aspect of capoeira is present, not only the martial side, but music, tradition, aerial acrobatics, takedowns and much much more!

    JUNE 11 - Bring-a-Friend Sunday: Free Capoeira class

    Guys, we will have another open class this month, this Sunday! I've updated the post above, see the details there! Hope to see you this Sunday. Feel free to ask any questions here or via PM.
  4. Capoeira is more fun with friends! Bring a friend this Sunday (June 11th) to try capoeira for FREE. This will be a tailor-made first-timer experience class, that will include Afro-Brazilian music, basic capoeira movements and interaction with a partner. TIME: June, 11th (Sun) from 3:00pm to 5:00pm. VENUE: Fengqi rd. 361, Guodu Commercial Building, 21F, use East Elevator (left side), room 2101. Subway: Fengqi rd, exit A1, five minutes walking, close to Fengqi rd. and Zhongshan rd. intersection, entrance from Guodu Community (国都小区). = Capoeira FAQ = Q: WHAT IS CAPOEIRA? A: Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance and music. It was created in Brazil mainly by descendants of African slaves with Brazilian native influences, probably beginning in the 16th century. It is known by quick and complex moves, using mainly power, speed, and leverage for leg sweeps. Try also searching YouTube for capoeira roda or just capoeira :)          Q: WHAT IF I AM NOT FLEXIBLE OR NOT IN BEST PHYSICAL CONDITION? Don’t let this discourage you! Capoeira is for everyone!!! Young or old, short or tall, girl or boy! Of course, the more you train, the faster you will see results! We start by teaching you the basic movements and you take it from there. Q: I HAVE NEVER TAKEN ANY TYPE OF MARTIAL ART OR DANCE CLASS. CAN I STILL TRY CAPOEIRA? A: Capoeira does not require that you have prior experience on any type of physical activity! Q: WHAT SHOULD I WEAR? For your first class, comfortable workout wear is fine. Should you decide to sign-up, we have uniforms available for purchase. Any questions? Contact me via PM.
