***PUT IT IN THE DIARY NOW***

“Open rodas must have many capoeiristas from different levels, plus guests from friendly and rival schools. This combination will create the natural tension needed for the development of strong and lively jogos. The formalities of a regular class should be avoided and despite the adherence to tradition and ritual, open rodas must allow spontaneity, creativity and the free spirit of capoeiristas.” Mestre Acordeon

“Capoeira is a riddle and there is no answer.”

Capoeira student

“Capoeira reminds me who I am, and reminds me of my uniqueness and what I can do with it.”

ELC student

“It’s a group thing – we all learn off each other”

Musician, male, 38yrs

“Apart from a skill, it also lays down rules which benefits those taking part. It offers positive benefits through developing respect for others. It’s also great fun.”

Andrew Boff. Greater London Authority

Life is a struggle? Life is a battle?
 The player sees that capoeira is teaching him to dance within and during this fight.

Nestor Capoeira

Capoeira is treachery

 

Mestre Bimba

“Entering into training or a roda, nothing else matters, everyone is equal and everyone shares the same experiences.”

East London Capoeira Student

“I like capoeira because it is a full body workout, I feel strong. When I play I feel excited and motivated. I would tell anyone considering capoeira to join…its good.”
