Capoeira Besouro Hawaii

Capoeira Besouro Hawaii


Today some of our Capoeira Besouro ohana put on a show at Summer Fun camp in Makakilo. Watching the expressions on the faces of the keiki in the audience was priceless. The keiki were enthralled by Carmen's stories, Mestre's music, moves & muscles, and the playing of our group. The ooohs & ahhhs were plentiful. The smiles & attentiveness on their faces beautiful. So good to be part of this Spreading of Aloha through Capoeira. We dedicated the show today to our Capoeira Sister Kristin Wallace Ahlgren!

Hundreds of years ago, Capoeira was created by the African slaves in Brazil as a form of self defense, to aid in the fight for freedom from slavery, oppression, and cruelty beyond imagination.
Today the struggle continues, violence continues, inequality continues. People of color are suffering from discrimination, inequality, economic slavery, and violence.
Racism and oppression are “pandemic”, and have endured much longer than any virus, not only afflicting people of color in Brazil, and the U.S. but all over the world. The ‘cure” lies within Each one of us.
We are all equal, we all deserve to be safe, we deserve to be respected, we deserve to be heard, we deserve to be treated with dignity, we deserve to be understood.
Each one of us can and will make this world a better place for all of us if we recognize that no human being is better than another. We are all equal.
Capoeira Besouro Hawaii under the direction of Mestre Kinha stands in solidarity with our brothers and sisters.

A silver lining in the cloud of the Covid 19 pandemic is that on line Capoeira Zoom classes have connected us to our friends and students here on Oahu and all over the world- Maui, Northern California, Cape Cod, and Vancouver, and Japan!

International capoeira class today! Friends joining us from Oahu, Cape Cod, Novato-Northern California, and Vancouver, Canada! So great to see you all!

We were honored to participate in Sunday’s event led by Mestre Arcanjo in memoriam of Mestre Anjo. Mestres Kinha, Anjo, Sidinho and Sardinha are the four mestres made by Besouro’s founder Mestre Beiçola.

Congratulations to the newly formed Professor Wellitinho and other students who advanced at Saturday’s Batizado, Troca de Cordéis e Formatura. So amazing to meet and support our Besouro brothers and sisters in Brazil.

Big mahalo to Mestre Navalha and his students for their hospitality in this wonderful exchange in Rio de Janeiro.

Jornal Liberdade de Expressao

The local paper in Guapimirim covered the event yesterday, which hosted maybe 60-70 capoeiristas, including around 15 mestres. It was an amazing experience for all of us to play with and learn from them. We’re sad to be leaving today but excited for next week’s events and sightseeing in Rio de Janeiro.
