Update 13/12/2018: Added Only The Strongest to the list. I listened to the first two episodes and I really liked the content. The topics are interesting and are discussed from a teacher perspective which makes it very relatable to me. I’ll definitely listen to the other episodes in the coming days.
Today I am sharing a list of podcasts and vlogs which are maintained by capoeiristas. If you don’t like to read or don’t have time to, then a podcast can be a great alternative to pick up new knowledge. I mainly use podcasts or downloaded vlogs to pass the time when commuting between home and work.
Not so long ago I discovered that there are actually some capoeira podcasts. Why didn’t I find this out sooner? Anyways, for me it was a new source of information and I liked the idea of listening to the stories and thoughts of other capoeiristas.
After listening to several episodes of each podcast/vlog, I think I prefer the channels of the Mestres. They mostly talk about one specific topic or idea and are often aimed at teachers, which is more interesting for me. Then there are a few channels created by “regular” capoeiristas. They discuss all sorts of things but I had the impression most episodes were about their local capoeira scene. For me, those episodes were less interesting because I am not part of that scene (literally living on the other side of the world).
Aside from my personal opinion, I think these people do great work and such projects are an important contribution to connect capoeiristas worldwide.
Do you know of any other podcasts or vlogs? Let me know in the comments! Are you more interested in books? Check out this list I created.
