This is a short video of the latest beginning Capoeira workshop taught by Eric Marinho at Action Fitness on January 23, 2010.
Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art, dated over 500 years, practiced by slaves who disguised the fighting movements as a dance. Eric’s approach to teaching Capoeira is about personal flow and energy, allowing oneself to follow one’s instinct rather than to stay in a rigid structure. This freedom of movement promotes not only a healthy corporal expression through movement, but it delivers an amazing workout which incorporates flexibility, cardio, speed, agility and body weight strength, all through natural movement patterns. Yet another way to become “Wild Fit”!
