Classes are cancelled on Easter Sunday April 24, 2011 at Bloombars.

Class on Saturday at 11 am at BloomBars is still on.


Here are some pictures from the Demo and talk that we gave recently at Catholic University.  In addition to a mini class for the audience members, Contra Mestre Bomba also demonstrated how a berimbau is made, starting with raw wood, a gourd and some hand tools, and gave a talk about the history and traditions of capoeira.  You can find video of the event here.

Yesterday’s Biggest Loser again featured a segment with Capoeira, which is a great full body workout that incorporates cardio, strength, flexibility, stamina agility and balance. Watch a little bit of the episode here.

If that weren’t enough, here’s a clip of Brett using Capoeira to help train supermodel Veronica Webb!

Many of you may not be aware that there is also an Australian version of Biggest Loser. Here’s a clip of the Aussie’s working out to Capoeira!
