Show Notes

Creativity through the lens of an aircraft mechanic and Capoeira instructor,

"Creativity is about the imagination you have whether it's a problem you're solving or creating something extraordinary."

Oscar Cuadra has trained Capoeira, a Brazilian martial art, for over 20 years throughout Brazil and currently at United Capoeira Association Colorado in Denver. As a teacher, Oscar challenges students to explore their creativity as they exchange movements in jogos (games exchanging attacks and defenses) of Capoeira. Students have the opportunity to read someone else’s energy, create energy shifts within themselves, as well as, play with transferring energy to another person. He challenges his student to hold curiosity about how this exploration parallels how they participate in the world outside of the Capoeira studio.
