Weekly video – Football + Capoeira

We are working hard at our football skills during G3-5’s current invasion games unit. But what happens when you combine soccer with Capoeira, the acrobatic martial art from Brazil? Take a look (warning…don’t try this at home).

These young athletes aren’t practicing on groomed grass fields. They’re performing in an inner-city setting on dirt lots, paved streets, rooftops and courtyards. This video shows you that it doesn’t take the best facilities in the world to become the best athletes in the world. It takes work, dedication, constant practice and the obvious passion for one’s sport demonstrated by these athletes.

Also check out some of the amazing skills these guys have. Again, sheer hard work and dedicated practice is the only way to achieve this level of ability.
