Capoeira Mondays


From Joseph Natter ’17:

Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian art form which combines fighting, dance, and music. Rich with acrobatics and trickery, it is a fighting style designed to confuse and counter conventional western fighting techniques. Having been used by slaves in Brazil, Capoeira’s history is intimately tied to the bloody proletariat struggle for freedom. I will be teaching Capoeira Regional, in the style of the school Volta Ao Mundo. All experience levels are welcome.

Date/Time: Every Monday @ 7:30 pm
Place: Freeman Wrestling Room
