I was just checking out Capoeira Connection (they have a new and improved look to the site, I really like it, and there is some great information there if you haven’t checked it out before) and I came across an article called Best Capoeira on YouTube.
I honestly thought it would be the best capoeira, but after you watch a few of the clips you’ll notice that it’s truly the worst capoeira they could find.
How surprised was I, then, to find that I was among these “best of the worst” clips!?
That’s right folks, here in all of my awkward capoeira beginner hilarious glory, is yours truly.
And yes, that is a berimbau that I managed to knock off the wall so it could hit me in the face. Notice the surprised look and expletive before I started to laugh my butt off at the end.
Am I embarrassed by the video? Not really, because I decided to post it on YouTube. I did it in part because I wanted it to take off and be one of those funny internet memes, but I knew it would never really get that big.
And I also posted it because I’m not afraid to show people how goofy I was when I first started capoeira (this is from like.. 2000 or so).
But let it be a lesson to you all, don’t try to do aus on your elbows in a small room in your house.
