Training Review 2/10/14

OMG so efficient is what you are thinking right? You are not wrong.

Today's class:

1. Meia Lua de compasso (meh lwa gee kompasso, or compasso for short)

2. Queda de rins (kay-dah gee hinge)

Tip: jab your kidney with your elbow. it's the way to go. Will take a while before you find the spot that doesn't hurt though >:)

3. Rabo de arraia (ha-bo de higher)

It has a name! Not compasso de kosongmau
Try to progress your compasso into this! From 2 hands to one to none!

4. Meia lua Reversao (meh lwa re-ver-sao, or just reversao)

This is another thing you can progress to from the compasso, so it's important to get your basics right! It probably was awkward and weird to do this for the first/second time just now, but no one's rushing. Go at your own pace.

5. Ponte (ponch)

Since it's halloween this month, let's do something to scare your friends right... This is also another one of the basic movements that we neglect, so let's train this together and walk the entire length of MPSH soon yeah?


This is just one of the things you can do with the moves we've learnt so far, ignore the advertisement haha

So that's it for this time. Have fun learning the names/moves, should we have a mid term for this as well? >:)

Training Review 30/9/2014

Hey everyone, I guess we shall move back to this space in the interim while our website is down; will try to get it back up asap. In the meantime, watch this space!

So in the interest of convenience, and the benefit of our newcomers, I shall try to post a review of our training sessions if there are new moves introduced. This is purely from my memory, so there may be some things missing, pardon me haha.

So these are what we did yesterday:

1. Songs. We learnt a few new songs ytd! It's ok if you feel lost and awkward vocalising the lyrics, everyone's been there. Just try to sing louder the next time, and soon you will be screaming ur lungs out in the roda. Below are the songs we learnt yesterday:

a. A hora e essa

b. Ai ai ai ai. (the video sounds depressing, don't be too bothered by it)

c. ai ai aide (another depressing sounding one)

d. Eu pisei na folha seca (you pee-say na fo-lya say-kah) ok can't find the song that Toshi taught ytd, but this is the other song that he ALWAYS sings. learn it.

OK I think that concludes the songs. Moving on to the... moves.

1. Martelo rodado (ma-teh-low ho-dah-do) we start small ok, don't fly yet.

2. Armada (ah-ma-dah)

3. Bancao (ben-sao)

4. Martelo (same as 1.)

5. Queixada (kay-sha-dah)

Ok I think that should  be enough for 1 session. Will post more the next time. Hopefully.


This is what some of the more experienced (older, like very old) guys and girls were doing ytd. Don't be intimidated, it's never too early to start.

Macaco (mah-ka-koh)

Ok so that's all for this time, hope you like this. Depending on the response, there may or may not be more of this haha.
