Bantus Capoeira - Chilling Out

I was invited out by Bernard and normally on Sundays, I tend to stay in after fasting. It was however a slow day and very uneventful Sunday, and believing in the principles of Carpe diem (Latin - Sieze the day), i obliged and went out to Laundry at Curve to watch and get to know Brazilian Culture through Bantus Capoeira.

Bantus Capoeira is a mix of Martial Art, Music, dance and Acrobats. Originally I was quite apprehensive, but after spending about an hour watching, I totally have new respect for these people. Though I am a martial art proponent of Tae Kwan Do and sparring is not new to me, these guys movement is so fluid with mixture of strength and flexibility.

As they say, a picture says a thousand words, watch this clip courtesy of Bernard.

One of my former collegemates is into Capoeira. From his blog, I know he was there too. But y'know ... Capoeira reminds me of this one Brazillian character called Eddie in Tekken 2 (the videogame).
