Mojubá lesson – 19 November 2014
Been off work for a couple of days with a cold and decided the only way I was going to get better was to try and sweat it out, so I went to class. I was really struggling at first but I think Mestre was taking it easy on us as it didn’t seem so hard after a while.
I even went to music class afterwards, I usually only go on Sundays, to try my new berimbau. Also I had not played this Sunday as it was the workshop and I really miss it. I love the music class.
I recorded this one so I can practice along at home, I might do this more often, other students do it too.
After training with Mestre Poncianinho for a few months now I’m starting to think he could actually be one of the great mestres of his generation – time will tell, but he certainly seems to have all the magic ingredients: talent, dedication, love for capoeira and his students, work ethic, kindness, patience, charisma. I really feel privileged, as do all the other people I have spoken to, to be taught by him.
Anyway, enough of the gushing, and here’s tonight’s class
Also, a friend filmed one of my games, the one in which I hit someone in the face (ooooops, I apologised profusely a million times, especially when I got drunk at the party!). I really need to work on my game – I know so many moves which I never use…
