Well we are all back from our amazing time spent in Brazil! I have described a bit of our experience elsewhere on the site (click here), but it is suffice to say that the time was unforgettable! Brandishing our new cordas, classes back in Sydney are as energetic as ever as we pass on the skills learnt during our time in Brazil. I have spent a big part of the last week editing photos and videos that are now available for everyone on this, our Capoeiracre Website. Enjoy! Maxwell.

Well this is it! I just received a phone call from Teacher Borracha and he has arrived in Brazil (sipping on a guarana drink already - hehehe). As for the rest of us... we are flying out in about 6 hours, and with a mere 32 hour flight (Brazil via Chicago!), we will be there in no time!

Needless to say I am excited! With 15 of us going over to Brazil for Grupo Capoeiracre's 1st International Batizado in Rio Branco, to visit our friends at Bantus Capoeira is Belo Horizonte, enjoy the splendour of Carnaval in Salvador, and countless other travelling adventures - it will be a memorable time!

So everyone please keep well, enjoy Sydney's beaches for me, keep training hard (see training schedule below), and see you upon our return.





Gana will be taking the classes listed below for our group while Teacher Borracha is away. These are the classes and times which will be on:

Beginners & Advanced:

Mondays Forestville Time 7:00pm - 8:30pm
Wednesdays Pyrmont Time 7:30pm - 9:00pm
Saturdays Pyrmont Time 1:00pm - 3:00pm

CLASSES FROM MARCH ONWARDS.... All our classes will recommence as per normal from the beginning of March.

Happy New Year!

Well no media updates for the moment, but instead some news about our impending trip to Brazil!

Teacher Borracha and 14 of his students will be attending the 1st International Batizado for Grupo Capoeiracre, to be held in Rio Branco, Brazil. The students include Sonhador, Roseiro, Fominha, Aranha, Piao, Pimentinha, Maxwell, Dino, Mano, Lobo, Pescador, Cristal, Natasha, and of course Soldado who will be flying out from Germany!

Teacher Borracha's will teach his last class on Saturday, 8th January before leaving, but Gana will be taking classes for the month Borracha will be away. Only Forestville (Monday) and Pyrmont (Wednesday and Saturday) classes will be on during this month.

It will be great to see all students continue to train hard at these three classes, ensuring that the energy and spirit of Grupo Capoeiracre will continue to grow both here in Australia and overseas.

2005 will be a great year!
