thx Shirllin..are u learning Capoeira as well btw? do u know what the course fees are? and the duration per session? hope i didnt trouble u.


Dear Joshua,

I have learnt capoeira for a period of time from this mestre.....the group is very welcoming to new comers.....the normal course fees somewhere abt 130 I think a month for training twice a week(not sure cause I am paying the student fees).....the duration of the session is abt 2hrs.....that's the fastest.....glad u are interested in capoeira.....

PS: U could PM me if u would like the mestre's no. for enquiries....alternatively search on the internet for angola de ouro singapore for more info

Thank you all for your replies.
I do not think that the yellow pages would advertise the kind of school I am looking for. I found the school I am in right now totally by chance, it was not advertised or anything. I guess I was ready and the mentor showed up...
And I am not looking for just women's self defense. I am already a martial arts practicioner and it is an integral part of my life. That is why I am looking into this now, because I do not want to be without martial arts for long. I am looking into something like Kung fu or Pakua Chang, although I know that the latter will be extremely hard to find.
It does sound like there are a lot of martial arts styles and schools in Singapore. I did not realise that. I am sure that with a bit of research I will find something that suits my needs.
Again, thank you all for your messages

Because capoeira is common discipline in many brazilian schools, I did for quite a long time during my high school times.

You can find a good group here in Singapore, in some mrt station that I do not recall right now, but they were teaching at california fitness 2 weeks ago. maybe go to cal fitness at Bugis and they can tell you where the group get togheter for classes.

Hope it helps

I am thinking of taking up ju-jitsu again. I have found a class at Tanglin community centre. Does anyone know what it is like? I think the teacher is Dr. Henry?

(Or was it Dr. Ford?)

Singapore Korean School has Kendo classes on Sunday (I think).
Very traditional, not commercialised.
