Capoeira Video: California

Today we have a few videos from “the Golden State.”

The first comes from The Capoeira Arts Cafe in Berkeley, CA, featuring Mestre Acordeon and his students.  I really liked the camera work and editing in this video, so that’s why I chose it.

This next video from Capoeira Los Angeles performing in Hollywood has decidedly un-capoeira-like music (and it’s not the greatest Metallica song either) but I like the capoeira, the atmosphere, and the location.

And one more from Mestre Curisco’s group in Chico, CA.  I like how at around 2:00 two guys start to really duke it out, but then they get broken up and they smile and slap hands.  That’s the best part about capoeira, everything stays in the roda (well, it should).
