Capoeira in Singapore

I've recently resumed training capoeira, a Brazilian martial art (and a very artistic one, at that), with Mestre Ousado. He leads the Association of Capoeira Argola de Ouro, which is the first capoeira association in Singapore.

They recently performed at WOMAD. The group often also does demonstrations / street rodas on the first or second Saturday of the month, 6 pm or so, on Orchard Road in front of Takashimaya.

Batizado is coming up, September 11 to 14 at NUS. Interested members of the public are welcome to join the workshops from September 11 to 13 - even those with no prior capoeira experience.

Regular classes are held at The Substation on Saturdays (4-6 pm) and Sundays (3-5 pm); and NUS on Wednesdays and Fridays (7-9 pm both days). You can check out class details and contact information here.

New students interested in joining the class should show up at either venue about 15 minutes before class start time, and speak with Mestre Ousado.
