Language of Movement

Gerry and Paul from "Druk n Poep" snapped a few great images while I was out training in Muizenburg, Cape Town.

The local youngsters were quick to turn up, join in the fun and show their talents. Even tough I do speak Afrikaans fluently, I am yet to fully understand "Die Kaapse Afrikaans" (The Cape Afrikaans). Which is spoken with much slang and speed by the kids who turned up on the day. The minute they saw me training there was silence, followed by a few words of "Aweh, wys hom!" (Show him!) and smiles all around.
It never ceases to amaze me how movement and passion overcome boundaries of language and culture.

A great day indeed! Check out the "Druk n Poep" website for other amazing photographic images
