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/.

Assassins Society - The Guild

Outdoor Activities, Sport and Health

The Assassins' guild is based upon the idea of players tracking down, locating and performing 'mock assassinations' upon other members within the society, whilst trying to avoid detection by their targets, being located themselves or being assassinated themselves. It is a game of cunning and creativity, with each player being totally free to choose how they approach their challenges. The game is not meant to be taken seriously, with players actually harming or engaging in any form of physical or verbal confrontation, as the name might suggest, but instead taken with a touch of humor and light-heartedness
