I may have mentioned in an earlier post that I was at the StokeFest a couple weekends ago and there was a group of people doing Capoeira which is a "Brazilian fight-dance, game and martial art". The next day I did a search online to see where the various Capoeira clubs are around London and there happened to be a group that is literally across from my flat at the local primary school gym. I figured that must be an encouraging sign that I should try it out.
So I went to the beginner class yesterday evening. It's great! Fun, different, exhausting and energising all at the same time. I could barely walk back home after and today I am sore all over my legs, arms, stomach, bum. Am definitely going to go for the rest of the course.
