This was exciting and we are so thankful when Daniele Santos, a writer from The Source newspaper decided to do a featured article on capoeira.

You should be able to pick up a local copy of the article at your local public library.

Ms. and Mr. Vancouver Pageant

Awesome video of the time I judged beauty pageant contestants learning martial arts for Vancouver Television.

They had 10 minutes to practice a martial arts style and then perform it in front of the judges. Whoever displayed the martial art with the most confidence wins the challenge.

Watch the video below.
