Sharing is Caring - NUS Capoeira Fundraiser

Hi guys,

Precisely on this day and tomorrow, you will find NUS Capoeira at the Arts linkway (block ADM) selling LaoPan Soy Beancurd! =)

Well, this is because the committee realizes that our semester fee is relatively 'pricey' compared to other martial arts club. Therefore, not only to appeal to the potential members and the freshmen, we would also like to help to reduce the financial burden on the current members. Since we won't be able to get any financial aid from NUS Sports Club nor NUS, we've got to help ourselves right? =D

We're still open for 'business' tomorrow (28 Aug '12) and its selling fast despite the cool, windy and gloomy weather today.

Do drop by to say hi if you're around =)

NUS Capoeira Welcome Tea 2012/13

Ola meu camaras,

Its the time of the year again, where we welcome the new blood into the family ;)

Jumping right in; here are the details of the event:

Date: 21st August, Tuesday
Venue: SRC Dance Room, 2nd Floor of Sports Recreation Center
Time: 7.30pm-9.30pm

Date 23rd August, Thursday
Venue: MPSH 2
Time: 7.30pm- 9.30pm

Just like old times, snacks and drinks will be provided. Please don't just come for the food. What's food without family and Capoeira anyway? =D

For all interested participants, please come in your sports attire as we will be working out a little. As you might have already know, Capoeira is a martial art, infused with music and dance. Given the 2 hours that we have, we will try to share what we know about Capoeira as much as we can in its entirety.

Also, do note that we welcome people of all backgrounds and prior experience in Capoeira or any other form of martial art is not required (All of us started with zero Capoeira experience anyway XD).
Throughout the event, we will introduce some basic Capoeira moves such as the ginga, esquivas and some offensive moves. Not forgetting the music aspect of Capoeira, you will be able to experience the musical instruments we use in the game of Capoeira like the berimbau, atabaque and pandeiro. 

Do contact us if you need assistance or clarification. We will be more than glad to hear from you.

See all of you there!
