I had been out of capoeira for several years due to injuries and such. I chose to return this year for the first time into an all skill levels class and was a bit apprehensive about not having the conditioning or flexibility to keep up. I had an excellent experience. I did not at all feel judged and got plenty of individual attention as well as encouragement from fellow students and the contramestre as well. I'm greatly looking forward to re-joining this community and sharpening my skills with this group. Can't wait for the next class!
