Capoeira Guy

This could be Graduado Popeye, an instructor in Capoeira in Cork (I never asked, but a leaflet handed to me has his name on it). He was able to jump up and forward, twist himself around mid-air and come down facing the way he had come! He was accompanied by other students of this Brazilian martial art and performed other manoeuvres. Impressive!

**updated contact info below** It’s a great shot alright! Popeye agrees too. To confirm your description this is Graduado Popeye, a teacher as part of the Oficina Da Capoeira group. If anyone viewing would like info on Capoeira or class times let me know at nealhewson@gmail.com
