Capoeira for the homeless

I think it is wonderful to see what the Amazonas Capoeira group in London are doing. I was deeply touched by this message I received from Relene on Facebook. We should all think about how we can contribute to society with our incredible art form.

Hi guys

Every year i am involving in helping a group of friends with the homeless in south London. We serve food and give away gifts for the homeless, and if you have clothes, or anything you want to give feel free, but no money please…

This year i need your help to do a Capoeira performance and any act you wish to do for entertainment. The homeless are very vulnerable, victims of crime and lonely. If we could give them a moment of entertainment so they can forget their sadness, God Bless you all!

Date: 13th of December
Time: 12pm

Address: Ace Clubs/ St. Alphonsus Road
Clapham common Tube

Please let me know if you can help, and if you can also bring a carry bag with warm clothes, hats, socks, jumpers, jeans, etc… that would more then welcome!!



Budo & Kampsportsförbundets Gruppinstruktörsutbildning

I helgen var jag (Kalle) på andra & sista delen av Budo & Kampsportsförbundets Gruppinstruktörsutbildning. Fokus låg återigen på ledarskap men vi fick också lära oss om idrottsskador. Vi fortsatte även träningsläran med rörlighetsträning och styrketräning. Avslutningsvis handlade kursen om näringslära och kost.

Utbildningen var mycket bra och nästa gång B&KF kör kursen kommer fler av gruppens tränare delta.


Help us!

We would like to ask all our visitors to help in keeping our blog updated and interesting. Please mail us information about upcoming workshops, new cd’s, books or any other capoeira angola related stuff. Or maybe just some really cool photos…

Since we’re a capoeira angola group our blog will be mainly angola, but information about upcoming events and workshops (not batizados) in Sweden, angola or regional, will be posted. For international workshops we will only publish information about capoeira angola workshops.
(This said, we will still filter what is sent to us)

If you have an upcoming workshop or event please make sure to include an URL and flyer/image. Just an URL will also be fine if more information and images can be found there.

Please mail any tips to:

Thank you!
