YES, finally Professor Parabolica is now Contra-Mestre Parabolica!

Congratulation to Contra-Mestre Parabolica for getting his new Brown(Marrom) Corda, the second highest next to a Mestre ranking.

Now in the Southeast Asia region we have a Senzala Contra-Mestre Parabolica here, our Capoeira Penang and Capoeira Bacolod teacher!

The following are some of the photos of Contra-Mestre Parabolica from the Senzala 50 years event in Brazil:

Senzala St Germaine Batizado 2012 Videos

Hi everyone,

Here are some online videos I found of CM Banana's 2012 Batizado in St Germaine en Laye.

This was the one Professor Parabolica attended - and you can find him in the videos! Our mestre, Mestre Elias, along with other teachers in Senzala were also present at the event.

In this video, Prof Parabolica is playing the berimbau while CM Banana guides everyone in singing. Do you remember the song he is teaching, which Prof Parabolica taught us in one of our workshops? :)



Also check out this other video of the senior students from the same event!:



Comment on what you see!

Thursday Morning Beach Training Session!

It is Thursday(25 January 2013) morning, and it's a public holiday so we have decided to head to the beach to do some training.

The guys at training! lol
Overall the training was fun, Sam got his Xango and Palito is getting there too. Grilo and Destraido also got their Macaco, seems like training on the beach benefits all of us.

I found this picture of Sam kinda doing some wrestle moves on Grilo, maybe this is the reason why Grilo sprained his shoulder(Just kidding). Haha.
LoL at Sam

We will see you guys on beach again! Axe Capoeira Penang!

Obrigado Instrutor Abelha! - Training in January 2013


Hi everyone!

It was great to start the new year with a visit from another member of the Senzala family - Instrutor Abelha. We would like to thank him and his family for taking time off to Penang just to meet us!

It was great to see each other again since we last met in 2009's Batizado, and this definitely won't be the last time!

It was also a wonderful opportunity to meet another teacher of Mestre Elias who is just as inspiring and encouraging! We will always remember your advice to foster our passion in capoeira and to train in the ways that we can. Capoeira after all is not only about movements or acrobatics. Even meeting to discuss about capoeira or reading about it is part of training, right?

Also, the introduction to aspects of capoeira such as music, several sequences and movements during the special Saturday training was extremely helpful and supplemented our learning under Professor Parabolica.

We are very happy to have you here and we anticipate the next class and collaboration!

We would also like to thank all friends who came for the training with Instrutor Abelha and also for the dinners with him and his family! Thank you also to Liso and Rosinha's friends for joining in and taking Instrutor Abelha and family around our beautiful Georgetown. Kamsiah!

Good dinner and conversations at a homey place!:

And of course capoeira is always on the mind - Elisa starting out early

Capoeira in Fifa Ballon D'or 2013

Hey guys,

This is the Fifa Ballon D'or 2013 held yesterday where Lionel Messi won his fourth consecutive Fifa World Player of the year.

The Award Ceremony featured a Capoeira performance in it, which is pretty awesome. What's even exciting is our very own Senzala Contra-Mestre, Contra-Mestre Xuxa is one of the Capoeira performer in it.

Be proud of the Senzala logo you are wearing!

Happy New Year 2013 to Capoeira Penang!

Happy New Year 2013 to Capoeira Senzala Penang and to all the members in Penang!

Happy New Year 2013 by Capoeira Senzala Penang
The year 2012 was such an amazing year, earlier this year our Grupo Senzala teacher Professor Parabolica came to Penang and give us a fabulous workshop together with Instructor Soldado from Grupo Camara.

Then a surprise visit from Professor Pitbull and Kasia from Singapore, given us an awesome workshop and training somewhere around May and June 2012.

Through these workshops we made a lot of friends with fellow Capoeiristas from Grupo Camara(KL), Grupo Xango(Singapore) and also get to know the lovely Murayama couple from Japan together with their cute kids.

Not to forget, we get to train in a proper studio(Elite Dynamix Studio) near the Greenlane. We no longer have to train in the rough floor in Youth Park.

Would like to thank our instructor Professor Parabolica for all his effort for teaching Grupo Senzala in Penang, and all his selfless works to keep this Grupo alive in Penang.

Thanks to Professor Pitbull and Kasia for coming to Penang and give us such a wonderful workshop and training to us. The experience to train with you guys is priceless.

Thanks to fellow Capoeiristas Soldado(Grupo Camara KL), Pato, Fadinha for being such a wonderful friends to us, inviting us to some of the demo and show in Ipoh and KL. Also thanks to Capoeiristas from Singapore for visiting us and supporting our workshop.

Finally, thanks to our dedicated and committed members for staying with us for all these time. Special thanks to Destraido, Grilo, Confuzo, Sean and Sam for their dedication in training with us.

We've seen such a tremendous improvement in you guys, we will grow stronger and better together in this coming year.

Unity is everything to us, we will make Penang Capoeira proud together!

Axe!

Capoeira na Muralha da China

"Capoeira na Muralha da China", means "Capoeira in The Great Wall of China" presented by Mestre Feijiao from Grupo Senzala.

Found these two interesting video clips from Senzala peers, perhaps Mestre Feijiao is attending some Capoeira event in China and decided to record some random Capoeira footage in The Great Wall.
