My grandson, Nico, performed with his Capoeira class this weekend. He was getting his first belt. As his class performed he yawned. Yes it was a long morning and I must admit I was yawning too as I did not have enough coffee in me.
Here in Hawaii, there are many, many people from all different walks of life. By and large all of the different nationalities get along much better than I ever experienced living on the mainland. So here I was at a Capoeira class, a martial art that was from Africa by was of Brazil all the way to Hawaii.
My grandson who has the league of nations in him along with Hawaiian was among those learning this art.
I was there to support him although I wished he was taking Lua which is a Hawaiian martial art. But Capoeira is quite thrilling too.
After sitting and watching little children perform while waiting for my grandson to get his belt the adults came on and did some demonstrations. I perked up, came alive and could see what a challenge, workout and skilful art this was.
He even did a hand stand. Well sort of
Just another day in the Melting Pot called Hawaii.
