Hsinchu Capoeira class Thur 9/6 20h-21.30

Hi Hsinchu expats!

Do you like to work out, while having some fun and meeting new friends?
Then you'll love Capoeira!

Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance, acrobatics, and music.

It is a ritualistic game played in a circle of people, the Roda, where the music sets the pace of the game. The game is an unrehearsed combination of attack and defence movements where the aim is get the other either through kicks, sweeps or take downs. The paradox of the game is that although it needs a certain cooperation of both players, it is also a dispute where both players transform their dialog of movements into something unique and new that neither is certain of its outcome every time they play. The game has no winners or losers. The songs tell stories, the chorus and rhythmic claps amplifies the hit from the music that engages all members together - creating an amazing energy, the Axé, of the Roda. Capoeira brings us back to our primitive origins long forgotten by our society where every single individual in the circle can equally influence the outcome and each other not with words but actions.

Capoeira is very inclusive. Regardless of gender, age or physical ability, everybody can learn and enjoy Capoeira!
