This short video was a wonderful way to wake up and learn a little movement; not too intricate, but beautiful.

Thank you.

I am now aware of the existence of a Brazilian martial art called Capoeira. I like the stepping and dancing style. Will re-visit.

Same comment as the other video. Because there is no mirror image instruction, it is extremely hard to follow. Please redo audio with mirror image left/right thing
