Movie Reviews

Very short workout!
Leanne | San Diego, CA | 06/14/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I used to do capoeira for a few years but haven't had time to go to classes for almost a year, so I was very excited to see that this DVD was coming out because I thought it would be a nice way to continue with my practice on my own. I did it for the first time yesterday, however, and was very disappointed by how short it is.

Although the DVD does start with a review of the basic moves/kicks you'll be doing and a brief history of this martial art, the workout itself is only about 20 minutes long, including the warmup. There is also no cool-down or stretch at the end.

On the positive side, all of the music is by Mestre Bimba and there are some good sample rodas to watch and learn from.

Overall, it's an alright workout that provides a nice overview of the basic moves (like Benção, Queixada, Martelo, etc.), but I felt like it could have been much longer."
Capoeira at its BEST!

"Me and my husband tried this video for the first time and we loved it!!! Paula Verdino is an amazing instructor who provided clear instructions on the different types of techinques. I definitely apprecipated the background and history of Capoeira and its music.
The warm up was very good and the workout was intense, even a cave man can do it! Although the video was short we are hopeful that there will be a series to follow. This is a great video for beginners, who which to learn more about what makes Capoeira such an amazing sport in Brasil and around the world."
Different from what I'm used to!

"It looks like it is a decent workout. I just didn't have enough floor space in my house to actually do the workout. Make sure you have enough floor space!"
Different and challenging

"This is a killer on butt and legs and pretty amazing all-around workout. I started going back to some yoga and and started Pilates to improve my flexibility and strengthen my lower back which also helped to compliment this program. I liked trying something different and will keep it in my workout mix."
