Favourite Friday: inspirational capoeira videos

Recently I discovered some really cool and inspirational capoeira videos on YouTube, and I’d like to share my favourites with you.

“Girl on Fire”, the capoeira edition

She’s awesome, isn’t she?


Soul Capoeira: ground movement combination

This isn’t extraordinarily spectacular, but a great inspiration because I want to get better at playing close to the ground, so this nice little sequence is my goal for next year. Still working on a decent queda de rins, though … but seeing what can be done with it makes me keep trying.


More Soul Capoeira:

This guy reminds me of a dancing rain drop (especially with the music in this video) – his movements are so fluent, but slow and defined enough for the eyes to follow. Watching this video makes me fall in love with capoeira over and over again.


Last but not least: dancing with a chair


What’s your inspiration?


for you.

(For those who are wondering, my shirt says “the early bird might get the worm but the second mouse gets the cheese” – my mum gave it to me a while back and it’s quickly become one of my favourites, even though at first I thought it was a little cheesy, pun fully intended. Thanks, mum.)
