Playing around on my hands

Here is a recent clip of me training at my place one fine morning.
I have decided to capture a couple of basic exercises used to develop better handstand control, after that I perform a small progression into one arm handstand work and show the three basic positions on one arm: closed legs, half a straddle and full straddle, in the end of the clip I just play around and show some implementation work I have been doing into my capoeira practice. Enjoy...

Corta Capim

I've started training acrobatics in a quite a late stage in my life - 16 years old.
And even then it was a very disorginized and random kind of training. I was basicly thrown into the waters - jump and do it.
Years later, and through the experience of training myself and others, I came to the realization that some kind of a systematic and thought-of aproach is needed, even in the field of self expressive, freestyle work.
I've started to devise a way to better prepare the body and teach some of the basic progressions to this kind of aerial work. I am not only talking about traditional gymnastics work, but other, more flexible and directed aproach, more suitable to this type of style.

Let me know what you think...
