Here I am back to the second Capoeira exhibition and to watch my grandson Nico earn his second belt in this martial art. With much more enthusiasm than his first year (Nico’s first belt exhibition)Nico did quite well in this grandmother’s opinion.
The ceremonies started with a Tahitian dance.
Nico was all smiles and laughter while getting ready to do a quick performance before their test began.
Then the serious face showed on all the students as the adults came out and demonstrated. This is the ultimate goal for Nico
He is not falling backwards he is totally balanced.
Nico is now doing his polite greeting with the teacher who will run him through his drills
He is so much more serious this year and more interactive than he was last year.
There is so much style, grace and balance in this art. The teacher is rolling over him not falling on him
And here is his signature hand stand. each child gets the chance to demonstrate the skill he feels is his best. Nico has mastered his hand stand. Now next will be hopefully the one that his teacher is performing next to him.
A bow to the audience and it’s over. For this year.
He is so happy with his new belt. Now to learn how to tie it.
