Welcome to the virtual roda. As in a real roda the games are controlled by the soul of capoeira - listen to the music, and play that kind of game. If you have any complaints about material on this forum please contact Brabo at [email protected].

  Topic: beginners block course

Hi all I am thinking very seriously about doing the beginners block course starting on the 26th of July and was wondering what I could expect at the block course..

also what is the required level of fitness and flexibly´┐Ż

because currently I am lacking in both. These are two of the main reasons I am looking at starting capoeira + a bit of fun along the way I hope.

The course caters to most levels of fitness, and flexibility is not essential in the beginning. Both will develop very quickly as you keep training. The hardest bit to start with is getting used to all the movements and technique, as well as using your arms & shoulders more than the average joe. You will feel like a flat tyre the next day, but it's so much fun you'll have forgotten the pain by next week's class :)
