Capoeira videos of proffesional level players only, filmed in Brazil and the UK. When I get the opportunity to go, I scour Brazil for the finest capoeiristas I can lay my camera on. Once back home I get down to the editing samplers and showreels below. Often the people I film live in poor dangerous shanty towns (favelas) with little or no income, other times they live in comfort teaching capoeira for a living. This is your chance to see the cream of capoeira from the comfort of your PC, enjoy! Click on the pictures to watch the clips.
