In case you were wondering why we haven’t had many updates, it’s because we have a fancy new website for our DC Capoeira group.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 5,600 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 9 years to get that many views.

Tuesday December 18th and Thursday December 20th will be the final capoeira classes of 2012!

Can it be due to the Mayan Apocalypse? 

No! We’re going to spend the holidays with family and friends.

Have a safe & happy holiday break! We will see you for more capoeira classes in the new year, starting on Thursday, January 3rd.

(And also — save the date for a pre-Carnaval party, slated for late January!)

I know this photo has nothing to do with capoeira… but just look how festive it is!

Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art disguised as a dance and performed to musical instruments and traditional Brazilian songs. It is comprised of specific offensive and defensive movements and, unlike in other martial arts, the participant is constantly in motion because of the basic movement, the ginga. The movements also consist of positions on the ground, kicks, sweeps and acrobatics.

Our style, capoeira regional, is practiced to a quick beat and kicks are performed in an upright and aggressive style. The result? A high-energy, always exciting workout!

No prior experience is necessary. Beginners should wear loose fitting clothing and light footwear. Advanced capoeiristas should wear traditional white capoeira pants and a t-shirt. Shirts and capoeira pants are available for purchase.

For new students, mention you learned about our new student promotion on DCCapoeira.com and you’ll get 2 weeks for $15!

Great video — even if you don’t understand what they are saying, check out the moves!
