Hello people, the reason i signed up to GB was to improve my gymnastic skills specifically for capoeira. I purchased Foundation 1 over a year ago but just started with it this week because of an injury. I'm digging it a lot and i was thinking about purchasing another course. I'm thinking Handstand 1 would make the most sense for my specific goals, since capoeira involves many handstands, cartwheels, etc. Would Foundation 1 (already purchased) + Handstand 1 be a good starting point to complement/improve my capoeira skills? If not, what would you recommend? Bear in mind, i can only purchase 1 course at the moment (limited budget). Thanks, C.
It was suggested that members of GB who train Capoeira start a new thread to discuss Gymnastic Strength Training™, BtGB, the Foundation and Headstand series and how we can incorporate those principles into our Capoeira training. So here it is! I'll start things off with one of the best models of balance, speed and agility, as well as creative expression: Cada de Peixe.
Not sure if this will have exposure on the particular sub-forum, but I will appreciate relevant feedback I was wondering if anyone can help me please. I am doing a thesis on a specific sport injury prevention and trying to incorporate biomechanics into my topic. I am currently reading some books, but it is not getting across lol I was wondering if anyone can also point me to video/reading material used ... three important videos are as follows: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=IiLqVCyyoPs#t=63 http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=iRb8inBYpf0#t=85 http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=iRb8inBYpf0#t=85 I am not going to bore anyone with background of the art, it is readily searchable these days, however there is simply very few technical discussions about movement quality just in terms of injury prevention. I have complied good and interesting data to get going, however I will like to incorporate biomechanics for leverage. I am also going to be evaluating dance and gymnastic prevention programs to see if I can use this as a plan for a risk management/assessment protocol Background of topic: http://www.slideshare.net/DumasBelasco/epidemiologia-das-leses-nos-praticantes-de-capoeira-na-cidade-de-so-paulo (not mine of course) and some not so readily available : Most practitioners agree the arms (joints) and back are usually the problematic areas independent of stylistic approach (but we all know it is the whole body lol) I have chosen these video from my own conclusion...I am only looking for the kinematic description no kinetics or quantitative aspects...
