When I was younger, you could say I was quite the athlete. I danced 5 days a week for several hours and did karate. I was nimble and flexible! But then college came by; up went the amount of junk food I ate, down went the amount of exercise I did.
As I explained in the ABOUT ME page, I am a journalism student and that means I am learning all the techniques of videography and reporting. So for my video project I decided to record a capoeira class. Capoeira is a brazilian type of martial arts is a Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance and music. As part of the deal to let me record their class, they had me be part of the beginner’s class; I. ALMOST. DIED.
I was either always almost getting kicked in the face, or kicking someone else in the face. Even the warm-up exercises were challenging, so either I am really out of shape or it is quite the challenging sport. It is surprisingly diffiicult. Take a look!
