Last Saturday, a flock of capoeiristas braved the holiday traffic to gather in Philadelphia for a post-Thanksgiving roda with Mestre Valmir and Mestre Cobra Mansa. Many had come to participate in the workshops with M Valmir that FICA-Philadelphia had been hosting all week long.
It was a nice roda with lots of good energy and kids running around to make things exciting (perhaps more kids than adults...)
Besides the Philly folk, there were people from Atlanta, DC, Baltimore, New York, and even Maine-- but the best holiday surpise of all was the presence of the ladies from FICA-Oakland! It was so good to see you all.
Many thanks to FICA-Philadelphia for hosting. It was a blast.
