It was the boy’s turn to fight after the girls sparred and these guys were brilliant! As you can see, great fun was had by all!

I have to correct you there Donncha, we don’t fight or spar, we play capoeira. Capoeria’s a very nice and friendly martial art! 😉 That’s not to say that we can’t fight, we just play without contact!
Thanks Mel, I was struggling to come up with the right verb because it didn’t seem right, but they used “sparring” in the Wikipedia page so I decided to describe it that way. A few more shots to come, maybe not for a few days though because I haven’t got time to work on more for the time being. Tomorrow it’ll be back to raiding the archives for older shots!
I am admiring the style of Capoeira, it is very amazing, I am not Capoeira practicer, I am a Wushu practicer, but I am really amaze with this kind of martial art.
These kids are so fortunate.
They get to learn Capoeira. Is it tradition to have drums and music?
I am new to this art, but I find it a total body workout.
