  • Basic Berimbau Variations

    On many occasions new capoeira angola students ask for a reference to the 8 berimbau variations that we practice.

  • A Video from GCAIG Vienna

    Youtube is full of great Capoeira Angola games.  Although watching videos is no substitute for good instruction, it’s still an excellent learning resource.  This game features  Prof. “Kenneth” from GCAIG Vienna and Mestre Pernalonga.

  • Tuesday Class

    Class starts at the normal time today.  The Black New World will be open at 7:30pm.  It’s also a new month, which means it’s time to show some gratitude.

  • Heat

    For those of you used to freezing in our winter classes and rodas, worry no more.  The propane tanks have been refueled.

  • New Year’s Day Roda – 2010
