Capoeira is not fully understood

Capoeira is not fully understood

Capoeira is not fully understood This was a comment on one of my Facebook posts.  It got me thinking, if capoeira is not fully understood, its likely that its also misunderstood.  I run a full time academy in Southend that promotes Brazilian culture and activities; capoeira, Brazilian jiu jitsu, Brazilian dance and Brazilian percussion.  If I look at our members list over 50% of our students are not English.  So is this a cultural thing?  I’m certainly not attacking my […]

Goals, expectations and motivation

Goals, expectations and motivation

Goals, expectations and motivation Without action there cannot be any results, without tracking your actions your results cannot be truly represented and without accurate results how will your celebrate your victories big and small? If we don’t set goals with a plan of action then we may as well call them dreams. To achieve your dreams or wishes, you need to set a plan of action. You may have one main goal that will be made up of mini goals […]

Capoeira RITE | BrazilArte Academy | Southend

Capoeira RITE | BrazilArte Academy | Southend

We are often asked what it takes to learn Capoeira? You can learn the basic techniques and start to learn how to combine movements to make a sequence, its not something you study to take an exam at the end. I was once asked “how long does it take to finish Capoeira?”. There is no end to Capoeira, it’s something that you embody and live. Capoeira is a lifestyle. It is more than just a sport, a martial art. It’s […]
