Valmir, as always, did some great classes – lots of basics with a focus on self-expression and making sure that we stay relaxed, flexible and happy! Valmir also made us think hard about what the objective of our capoeira was – and making sure we kept that in mind at all times.
Valmir also brought with him lots of positive energy and experiences to share. Together we made food for everybody on the Saturday (arrumadinho de Bacalhao – http://tudogostoso.uol.com.br/receita/5842-arrumadinho-de-bacalhau.html)
He gave a caxixi making lesson. We all learnt how hard it is to make a good caxixi! The lesson covered both preparing a raw materials to putting everything together - Valmir made sure he brought everything we needed from Brazil even the seeds..
Thanks to all who took part and help make the visit a success. Stand by for the next visit!
