Muito Obrigada (thank you very much) to Mundo Capoeira for this tremendous opportunity and axé (energy).  High expectations are in place for the openness and generosity of capoeirstas, but Mundo exceeded them.  My heart is already sore at the prospect of returning home and leaving such a great group, but as one member put it when describing it to her, “That’s love”.

I chose this image because it shows the energy this group creates and invites others to join.  So come if you are ready, everyone is able.  Bring your friends, there it strong social support and high potential for good affect.  There is no difference in styles of Capoeira; I am no better than you and you are no better than me, there is just one Capoeira!  All you need to do is play the game (jogo), join the roda!
