6 Keys to Building Upper-Body Strength (And Other News)

16 01 2008

Hello, class!

Today, we’re going to take a little field trip over to The Capoeira Blog, where Faisca has kindly published a guest post of mine.  Faisca was really nice in helping me when I first started trying to get Mandingueira off the ground, and so I’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you! 

Before going on to the guest post, I apologize in advance for any irregularities in posting this week!  I’m actually on vacation in North Africa right now, so it’s going to be a little bit tricky.  The topic for today’s post went through an interesting process.  Originally, I was going to publish the article on maculelê, first in the Capoeira é Dança series.  Then, thanks to Day 1 of my trip, in fact, I completely forgot about that and was going to write a one-off post titled “The Scariest Night of My Life and Why Things Like this Blog Need to Exist”.  (Don’t worry, nothing happened, but that fact itself was also a part of it, as you’ll see.)  Now that Faisca has published my guest post, I also plan to publish a sister post to it, looking at women’s strength and the perception of it (or its lack) from a more theoretical point of view.  I hope to keep posting throughout my trip, and will hit all of the things mentioned above, so please keep checking back for more!

Hope you’re having fun in Africa! That sounds awesome. While you’re there, try to figure out where capoeira came from =)

Thanks! It’s definitely been an interesting experience thus far, and I’ve not been here even 8 hours yet. Haha, I think I’m in the wrong part of Africa for that, but I will keep an eye out. 😛

I love your blog! And I hope you enjoy your trip and make it back safely! Was wondering if you heard about the all-women’s capoeira event taking place in Franca, Brasil? Would be worth telling your following, no?

Thanks, Jasmim! I hadn’t actually, thank you for telling me about it! You know what, I think I’m going to create a section on my blog just for events like that when I get back. 😀
