Capoeira

Creative Industries

Capoeira was born out of the slave trade around 500 years ago in Brazil. It was developed by the slaves as a martial art, however it was designed to look like tribal dances and rituals so that the slave masters would not suspect the violent aspect of the art.

A crucial component of learning Capoeira has been the ability to mask your movements and intentions in an apparently non-threatening dance, combining combat and music. At Southampton we have an enthusiastic Capoeira teacher, Mestre Joaozinho, who teaches the Angola style of Capoeira and we also have open training sessions to practice together.

You're welcome to come to any of our sessions! Your first session is free. Please see our Facebook group for more info or if you have any more questions feel free to email us. https://www.facebook.com/groups/sucapclub/.

Good Food Society

General

We aim to provide a light and friendly environment for students to get together and enjoy good food. Our tasting events allow students to mingle with likeminded foodies, and to try new exotic, healthy, nutritious and delicious food that may not usually come under a student budget. We aim to provide an understanding of other cultures through food tasting, and organize restaurant trips to unusual places that will heighten students awareness of the varied food culture in Southampton.
