Matric Fair 2011

4 days of matrix fair is finally over. A big thank you to everyone (Shiela, Gabriel, KY, Arnold, Mumia, Kelvin, Brian) who came down to help man the booth. Here’s a snapshot of what happened at e matric fair.

For freshies who missed the matric fair and would like to join us, our welcome tea will be held on the 2nd week of school, probably on 16 (Tues) and 18 (Thurs) August. More details will be posted on the blog soon!

In the meantime, most of our members are currently busy with the Combined Martial Arts Display (CMAD). If you are interested in other martial arts as well, do come down and watch the performance on 11 Aug (Thurs). Our very own Faizal and Cindy will be the lead actor and actress in the performance!

The Au is so easy, if I had a third side I'd do it there too!

This series of posts is gonna be about Au variations.

Most of us who have been doing capoeira for at least 1 semester are familiar with the basic Au ("cartwheel").

This week's Au is the Au Helicopteiro.

I've included 3 tutorials because some of you may find a particular tutorial easier to follow (hands up those who prefer the one in Portuguese! :P)

Once you guys get good let's go to Sentosa and do this:

Train hard and enjoy the last few weeks of your holidays!
