Re: São Paulo?
Thanks Ken - got some mates in Boulder so that's easy - nice one.
I'm debating whether I want to do cross training there, BJJ or capoeira - BJJ seems practical, aiki, and closer to aikido technically. Capoeira seems interesting, very different and perhaps more in tune with my values. I'm also wondering if learning either art will mess up my aikido - the posture and movement pattern of capoeira for instance seems contrary to those of aikido.
If anyone has any thoughts then please throw them my way - I know from expereince though the choice will most likely be made my practical and social factors though :-)
