As the subtitle says, "builds strength, agility and cardiovascular fitness using capoeira movements". This book was not written to teach you capoeira. It was designed to teach people how to get fit by using capoeira exercises. To me it can be used like yoga if you want to or like an aerobics. Good book.

If you've attended a well orchestrated Capoeira class for a couple of months, then there should be nothing useful to you in this book. It shows you how to use a few capoeira moves, with several variations, to achieve your fitness goals. You can probably already figure out how to do that yourself. You're better off buy "The Little Capoeira Book" by Nestor Capoeira.

If you haven't attended a Capoeira class, but admire the art and are looking for a way condition your body, then this book is helpful. The author spends a good portion of the book defining "fitness" and defending his possition that Capoeira is possibly the best tool for well-rounded fitness. The rest of the book outlines some possible routines and gives detailed descriptions of moves, with pictures.

Never once does the author of this book imply his writtings as a replacement to attending a class.

This book helps you set up a work out that you can easily build on as you improve. It gives plenty of tips for working out and healthy living. This book will not substitute taking classes, but the book even says that if you are serious about capoeira you need to take classes.

Capoeira conditioning in a basic stretching and capoeira exercise book.

If you don't have experience in martial arts or any time of organized exercise classes, this book may be appropriate for you. As more of a beginners' book I would recommend this book. However, if you are more advanced you want to look further into your search.

If you are a fan of bodyweight training, you should check out this book. For those of you familiar with Combat Conditioning, you will find a lot of similarities. It's basically like Combat Conditioning with a very gymnastic twist to it, which makes it all that much more challenging and interesting. A lot of handstand type movements and supporting your bodyweight on your hands.

Format: Paperback
I'm amazed at how many reviews for this book knock it down because it fails to teach Capoeira. The title of this book is not misleading at all it states quite clearly that this is a book geared towards Conditioning utilizing Capoeira.

Please look at this as a fitness manual and not an instruction manual for Capoeira. If you want to get in shape, gain some agility, and have fun in an innovative way then by all means add some of these routines to your current workout. If you're looking for instruction of Capoeira than you'll be somewhat introduced to it but not as much if you would have purchased a book intended for that purpose such as Nestors: Little Capoeira Book, one of the few publications in English.

Format: Paperback
A very good book to learn the basics of capoira movements. It is great for general fitness for anyone of any age and fitness levels.

Something different to the usual jogging, weights, cycling, etc.
