Capoeira Girls

Two girls show off their Capoeira moves in Fitzgerald’s Park accompanied by music played on the berimbau and atabaque. The fighting is very exciting to watch as participants leap from the ground, and seem to defy gravity on occasion!

From the Wikipedia page on Capoeira:

Capoeira is a Brazilian fight-dance, game, and martial art created by enslaved Africans during the 19th Century Participants form a roda (circle) and take turns playing instruments, singing, and sparring in pairs in the centre of the circle.

    One of my previous girlfriends was into Capoeira and it really is amazing to watch. Everything is so fluid and perfectly timed.

    I always wanted to take a proper set of lights to one of the lessons and capture some shots :)

    @Donncha

    Thanks for the tip and the great photo, it is just a prototype site that I am putting together for my instructor in the Candeias Group, and your photo does such a good job of capturing the action of Capoeira that I had to use it.

    I’m always intrigued by composite photos such as this (is that even the right term?), never quite sure how to pick the rights shots for it. But this is an excellent example of complementary photos. They really work together well.

    Glad I found your photo site again, I must have lost the link in the great feed purge of ’06!

    Capoeira is a fun sport, we used to have a capoeria group at our BJJ club. Always fun to see them doing their thing before we started.
