Capoiera in Oxford

Here's a video I made last year of the Oxford capoeira players demonstrating their sport in Summertown. The hero of "The Joshua Files" is a capoeirista. I love watching this sport, something I became interested in when on a business trip to the USA. I had this really tense meeting to go to and I couldn't sleep, so watched this bad-but-fascinating movie called "Only the Strong", all about a school teacher who motivates a gang of rough kids through capoeira that he's learned in the street gangs of Brazil.

I really love writing the capoeira sections of Joshua.

(Yes, the compression sucks on this version, I don't quite know how to fix it. Looks fine when I run it locally... Any suggestions welcome.)
