First, I want to let you know that I haven’t fallen off the face of the planet.  I’ve just been pretty busy lately with non-capoeira and non-blog related stuff, and it’s really cut into my posting time.  So that’s why you haven’t seen me around much.  I’m not dead.

Second, I just wanted to point you guys over to Virtual Capoeira and their Valentine’s Day sale.  They’re cutting the prices on select clothes, jewelry, media, and other capoeira gear so now you have no excuse to get something nice for a special capoeirista in your life.  And if you don’t like their selection, you could always, you know, check out this other store that has some cool stuff too.
Well, happy Friday everyone!



The Capoeira Blog Store! Just In Time For Christmas

Here is some big Capoeira Blog news…

We have a STORE!

I’ve been toying with the idea of starting up a CafePress store for a while now, but today I had some free time and decided to give it a shot.

I only have two designs in the store right now, but there are a wide variety of products to choose from.

T-Shirts and other apparel! 

Other merchandise! 

One design is the blog’s logo (which I think is a pretty cool and iconic capoeira design, which is why I chose it) with the words “Got Game?” underneath. If you’re ever walking down the street whilst wearing one of these shirts and someone says “hell yeah!” or “let’s play!” you’ll know they’re not some kind of psycho.

The other design is something unique and awesome. Show everyone that you’re down with the real gangsta of capoeira with this “Bimba Is My Homeboy” t-shirt (and sweatshirt).

Christmas is coming, and if you want to play Santa and get a gift for everyone in your group, why not buy a 10 pack of Magnets or Buttons?

This is my first time ever setting up a CafePress store, and I’ve realized that there are a few limitations. Basically you can only have one product of each style in a free store, which means there can only be one “White T-Shirt” or “Hooded Sweatshirt” at a time. Ergo, there can’t be a white t-shirt with Got Game and a white t-shirt with Bimba Is My Homeboy at the same time. You dig?

This kinda sucks, because it’d be great to have a wide selection of different designs available on different products, but it’s what I have to deal with for now. If things start to take off I will think about going for the Premium store, which allows you to have as many products as you want.

Now here’s where you come in!

Please let me know what you think of these designs, and the selection of products that I’ve unveiled. I purposefully started off slow (with only a few designs) to just get a feel for how the store works and for what people are interested in.

If you love or hate what I have to offer, tell me! If you have suggestions of other designs you’d like to see (I wanted to do a Pastinha Is My Homeboy shirt too, but I can’t with the product limits) let me know.

Most important of all, buy some gear! I’m sure we all need to buy something for the special capoeira someone in our lives, so why not buy from someone you know and love (that’d be me, btw)? 🙂 There is a pretty good selection of products you can buy (it’s not just t-shirts; check out the Messenger Bag, Mug, and Mousepad which are pretty awesome) so look around.

And if anyone ever asks you where you got that awesome shirt, just point them to The Capoeira Blog!

Thank you so much, enjoy, and Merry Christmas!



The Perfect Capoeira Gift

Do you need to buy a present for someone in your life who is obsessed with capoeira as much as you are?

Does a cute girl in your group have a birthday coming up, and you’d rather buy her a gift than knock her on the floor? (You could always do both!)

Do you have a fetish for all things teddy bear and you just can’t live without a capoeirista bear?

Well fear not, because here is the Jogo Bear!

Isn’t that just the most precious thing you’ve ever seen?

It comes in brown and white, and in both “boy” and “girl” varieties (the shirt changes depending on gender). You can also customize the color of the berimbau and cordao.

It’s a bit expensive ($60), but it would be the perfect gift for any capoeirista.
