It's Sucão vs the world on basic flexibility in Part 1. The Juice doesn't believe in it, and the other prove their point by using jargon like' hip flexors', 'functional movements', and 'abductors.' In Part 2 we do our best to talk about all the aspects of Women's Events. Good, bad, ugly, and beautiful.…
 
We're here with another bombtrack and a spinning back kick to the throat! Except it's not a spinning back kick, and it's easy to do, unless it's not and the timing's the hard part, except the timing's actually pretty simple...Consensus on chapa giratoria eludes us in Part 1. And Part 2 is an explanation of, and an argument over, the buffet mode ...…
 
We continue on with some more advanced tips on queda de rins. Adding it to other movements, and whether knee pops or leg twists are better for generating power. Part 2 has some examples of terrible teaching drawn from personal experience. Broken bones, dislocated joints, road trips, kicking pregnant women, and Bonzinho's finger game. Then a qui ...…
 
For our dirty thirty we go over queda de rins and how it should be used differently depending on whether you're taking a profile picture or playing in the roda. Then we double dip with a primer on feet (take care of your calluses, think about your moral character) and a discussion on why capoeira isn't on ESPN. I just want to have a beer with m ...…
 
We discuss why ML de frente is so great and so undervalued, with tips for doing it as disrespectfully as possible. And what to do if you have ugly feet - flex that foot! Then we run through a few questions from a listener. Everything you wanted to know about training capoeira while pregnant but were too male to ask. Cross contamination with oth ...…
 
Welcome to the only capoeira podcast that has been split into warring factions over a single move. Join us for an argument over tesoura de angola and the norms surrounding it. And Part 2 sees a comparatively thoughtful discussion on the reasons people quit training and what we can do about it. Treat them with respect, build in breaks, and steal ...…
 
Time to wrap up the rest of the orchestra. Pandeiro, agogo, and the reco-reco all star in Part 1. Why doesn't the pandeiro get nearly as much love as its siblings, the atabaque and berimbau? For Part 2 Varal does a mini-recap of a local batizado and whines to the other three about his experience. Is it just a bad attitude, or something deeper i ...…
 
In the Capoeira Connection Podcast EP 9, we sit down to talk with Contra Mestre Monkey, Auther of the album Minha Varanda. "In order for people to have a deeper understanding of the lyrics to this song, I have come here to offer a translation of the lyrics myself..." - Contra Mestre Monkey Minha Varanda - Refers to my home, the place I want to ...…
 
Varal declines to be any help whatsoever with the berimbau, but luckily the other three have plenty of tips, advice, and experience. In Part 2 we talk about traveling to batizados. Roll up your whites in your fanny pack, grab your sunga, forget about sleep, and get ready to go ham for the weekend.
 
How do you give a good nickname? Plus we share our own origin stories, from the mundane to the steroid-filled. In Part 2 Azul introduces us to the gray area - who wins? How do you play within the rules of engagement? Is is okay to be frustrated? And what to do when a woman grabs your ponytail and knees you in the face repeatedly.…
 
How can you make your ponte better? Sucão goes all deterministic and says you either got it or you don't, Azul loses it in one day, Varal uses magnets to help him through, and Bonzinho just loves to love it, man. And Part 2 has us disagreeing about whether capoeira would be any better if there were a global certification program for teachers. C ...…
 
In the spirit of looking forward in the new year, we take stock of capoeira's best and worst attributes. Sucão says it may be going extinct, Varal stands up for capoeira's dignity, Bonzinho gets a bill passed in the Brazilian Congress granting him land rights in the Amazon, and Azul picks the best best thing ever.…
 
In the Capoeira Connection Podcast EP 8, we make our way to San Antonio TX, home of Capoeira Luanda's Instrutor Montanha and Graduada Cegonha. Both of these amazing Capoeiristas have shown much dedication to the art of Capoeira as well as helping make a large social impact on their surrounding community. Join us as we talk everything from Capoe ...…
 
Are there ways to get better at capoeira other than by training capoeira? Probably not, but we take our best shot. Our respective thoughts on supplemental training and ways to get less cushion and more pushin for your macaco (TM Bonzinho, 2018). In Part 2 we "answer" a listener's question about how to follow your own path without being labeled ...…
 
We're going crab-style in Part 1, dissecting queda de quatro. Using it as just a transitional move, why we get there in the first place, and butterfly stroking into a ponte. In Part 2 we talk about playing someone who's much more experienced and much higher ranked than you. Varal tries to make friends, Sucao has the face-blindness and mistakes ...…
 
Continuing where we left off last time with vingativa, we talk about a bunch of crazy counters that are mostly made up by Azul. The tornado, the au de costa, the truck...we can imagine them all. And Part 2 is an honest talk on the good and the bad with capoeira internet videos. Are they inspiring? Are they discouraging? Are they part of the ora ...…
 
In the Capoeira Connection Podcast EP 7, we sit down to talk with Contra Mestre Versátil of Capoeira Batuque in Las Angeles and Professor Mascado of Capoeira Maculele. We dive into Contra Mestre Versátil's Warrior Class Project, "Through 40 plus years of experience in the martial arts: Chinese, Japanese, and Afro-Brazilian, we have found deep r ...…
 
In Part 1 we try to discuss vingativa despite never even coming close to a good explanation on what vingativa actually is. Apparently you have to consummate it, whatever it is. Sucão hops in to bring us a theory on why too much fine art has damaged his iliofemoral ligament, and hence his armadas make his hip grumpy. Part 2 sees us discussing fo ...…
 
We're way out of our wheelhouse on this one, but fortunately Dr. Debora Ferreira, a professor of Portugese and Latin American Studies took the time to be our guide. She sat down with Varal, Bonzinho, and Azul to chat about what's going on in Brazil these days, the dubious WhatsApp political ads, gang violence, police violence in the favelas, Bo ...…
 
Is armada the worst kick in the world? Azul certainly thinks so. We get us a good ol' fashioned debate between her and Sucão, who breaks down two different types of armadas in an effort to prove the kick's roda-worthiness. Part 2 is all about running a roda. Broken knees, angry ex-girlfriends, and self-sufficiency in your students. Plus, do gir ...…
 
Part 1 is hands-off with au sem mão, but we barely even get started before getting bogged down arguing what this move actually is. Sucão and Azul debate the this move's ontological status - where's the upper body? Are the legs over the head? Bonzinho and Varal sit ringside with nothing helpful to say. Part 2 is our Top 4 tips for having a clean ...…
 
OTS discusses the best spotlight move out there - amazonas. We discover the snap, pop, and possibly crackle of this one-armed, upside down, posed martelo. For Part 2 we're parting the curtain on how we hash out all of our theories. OTS comin' atcha live. Sucão introduces an idea he had about the relationship between higher-ranked people having ...…
 
In Part 1 we explore au de cabeça. Can you break your neck? How do you make a tripod? Would Jodie Foster do an au de cabeça if you asked her? Part 2 has us responding to a listener's email about our body types episode. What does it mean to be successful in capoeira? Is OTS too dismissive of people with physical limitations? Can you only be succ ...…
 
Our Halloween Special episode. After much confusion regarding the existential status of our hosts, we hit the ground lurching with the terrifying origin story of capoeira. Then Bonzinho administers a capoeira trivia game (cue much shame from your other hosts). And Sucão finishes the day with a story of a peculiar, haunted takedown he witnessed ...…
 
After 12 episodes, we've finally made it over to the ginga. We all think of it as a move, but is it really just a transition? Or is every move just a transition to the next move? This podcast gets zen on yo ass we try to identify this mysterious animal called "ginga." And that's the end of the harmony. Part 2 brings much disagreement about legi ...…
 
In Part 1 we start off with some tips all about the atabaque. As usual, Sucão takes it too far - his relationship with the atabaque is not PG13. Part 2 has us discussing different ceilings in capoeira and how to slide around them. We explore some self-imposed barriers like fear of the roda and whether you can be a true capoeirista if you're not ...…
 
The episode that almost never was. We begin already furious with each other and go straight into whether rasteira de mao is any good. A great way to take someone down safely? Or too spammy and inelegant? Part 2 has Azul take the lead with some observations on other sport communities and how they compare to capoeira. What makes the capoeira comm ...…
 
If you do a handstand on a spinning body (like the Earth) isn't that a hand spin? We're characteristically divided on our advice: either it's the hips, or it's the atom you select to spin on, or it's the breakdancers you talk to. Then it's on to how strange and difficult becoming a teacher can be. It's in the personality, or it's in the curricu ...…
 
We go overboard on meia lua de compasso. Varal endorses foot switching but not one-handed meia luas, Sucao trains it so he can stop time and go in reverse, Bonzinho weeps at the sight of a 1000-year kick, and Azul predicts someone's time of death based on their technique. Then 3 of us debate the merits of running family classes compared to stan ...…
 
CM Versatil and his Masters degree in Counseling join us to talk about flirting, sex, batizados, bystander intervention, and emboscadas (ambushes). Note: Versatil was being driven through Nevada while we recorded and sometimes the aliens interfered with his audio. I hope everything is intelligible, and any mistakes or technical glitches are min ...…
 
Join us for an extended discussion on an Angola class Sucão took and an open roda Azul and Bonzinho attended. We learn how to buy the game, some explanation for hand balanço, that a chair won't judge your meia lua de compasso, and that you should always call ahead. We leave off with a short discussion of flirting and overt sexual behavior at ro ...…
 
We finally get around to talking about bananeira after referencing it in so many other episodes, going over details like a tucked pelvis, tight core, and not pooping your pants. Then our guide to aging gracefully, which is not so much a guide as an argument. We're the youngest old people you'll meet in capoeira, so we're the perfect podcast to ...…
 
*Quality Control* - Hey, looking back on it, this episode is rough for audio quality. If that bothers you, I suggest you start with Episode 5. --Varal Azul vs everyone else on esquiva lateral. What details are important? How can we use it best? Should we even be wasting your time talking about this move? Why is Bonzinho stuck in bananeira when ...…
 
*Quality Control* - Hey, looking back on it, this episode is rough for audio quality. If that bothers you, I suggest you start with Episode 5. --Varal We offer some advice on how to use martelo sparingly, or, in Azul's case, how to go for the jaw. Then it's on to the pros and cons of ranking systems. How motivating are they? How divisive? Last, ...…
 
*Quality Control* - Hey, looking back on it, this episode is rough for audio quality. If that bothers you, I suggest you start with Episode 5. --Varal Failing to teach macaco, failing to help students, failing to get more people to like Varal. Our failure episode. Then we turn our attention to how not to feel embarrassed during demos and how to ...…
 
*Quality Control* - Hey, looking back on it, this episode is rough for audio quality. If that bothers you, I suggest you start with Episode 5. --Varal The inaugural episode. Movement spotlight on au for our intro before a dive into creativity. What does it mean to be creative in capoeira? Can you train it systematically? Is it useful? Closing o ...…
