There was a homework exercise issued on Brutal Training's main site. It was to take yourself out of your comfort zone, to find unique ways to train and to find that ' beginners mind' again.
As i delve deeper into the world of Capoeira i have come to realise one of the most important aspects of it, and life, is rhythm. I began thinking diverse ways to train my rhythm outside of Capoeira practice itself, the answer was obvious- Dance. Now don't get me wrong i love to dance, i dance all the time, well i don't know if you can consider bouncing around screaming at the top of your lungs to Rage Against The Machine and Pearl Jam all night long dancing, but its fun and moshing has its benefit's lol. I still love dancing like this, whenever i hear i song i like, wherever it may be, in a shop, who cares? But i f i go out now i throw myself at the dance floor instead of the bar, Ive always liked to dance and it adds to my rhythm training.
Outside the comfort zone-
As well as my usual moshing Ive been immersing myself in all manner of dance, samba, salsa, anything and everything. I even found myself dancing in a Jazz club in Edinburgh the other week, now not that i have anything against Jazz music, but i can vividly recall many conversations with my best friend ending in hilarity because neither of us ' understood Jazz music'
As a result of visiting the said Jazz club and dancing the night away, i still don't understand Jazz music, however i did have to improvise my moshing.
All this is putting me in a beginners frame of mind when looking at rhythm and movement, and placing me i the perfect learning environment for Capoeira.
Samurai wrote poems and done flower arranging, Spartans sang, all warriors have diverse training, don't limit your body ,mind or spirit, challenge yourself, throw yourself into action, and herein true growth lies

Personal note- Last night i was given my Capoeira name- GIBI- which translates as 'comic' or 'comic book'. Marcelo my instructor said it was because i was colourful, vibrant, like a character from the pages of a comic book, both in spirit and body. I like it, we were talking too and agreed it also fits really well because off the Parkour, Spider man and Daredevil are the greatest Traceurs ever! Also personally to me, i have always drawn, a passion i was always drawn to and natural at, my main style being comic book art and Tattoo art, this is another passion i have recently rekindled. And on a spiritual note, as strange as it may sound, alot of my inspirations have came from the pages of comic books, to me they always reflected the highest aspects and attributes of man- courage, honor, selflessness, daring, humility, strength, heart.
So i like GIBI, It has stuck lol.

The adventure awaits........

live it
