Learning Capoeira and Its History

My first day was on a Saturday - it was exciting. I wore loose comfy exercising clothes. I honestly did not know what to expect at all. This was all very new to me, because I have never done something like Capoeira. I came in to watch the little kids, just so I could get a sense of what it was like for my age group. It was fascinating to see little kids doing these moves. I couldn't wait to try it myself.

After attending this program, I learned the basic moves of Capoeira. Everything I was taught was interesting. It was all so new and I loved it. Most of all, I got to learn the roots and history of where this martial arts came from. For example, Capoeira was practiced by slaves. I never imagined that it had such a rich history. This program has made me brighter in many ways.
