Foundational Movement - Soft Arms

When people start Capoeira the arms are often a forgotten piece, as everyone wants to get the legs and kicks going. However, its crucial that the arms and legs work together in the ginga, attacks and defence. Also when people begin to ginga they often 'go small' with the hands and arms, limiting their movement, or moving them stiffly, when actually the ginga needs the arms to be moving a lot at times. Sometimes they need to be stiff, but mostly they need to soften. These exercises br

ing awareness to the arm movement, and help you be soft and expressive. Try them and bring any questions to class. Raul
