Good Things: February 21, 2011

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow)-Students at Honolulu Waldorf school got an exciting lesson in the Brazilian art of Capoeira. They watched Capoeira Besouro Hawaii perform on the playground, then learned some moves themselves. Capoeira was invented during the slave trade era in Brazil - kicks, sweeps and acrobatics were actually used to hone battle skills. This lesson was part of the students' geography class.

Freezing temperatures didn't stop dozens of people taking part in Germany's third annual Naked Sledding Competition. Dozens of men and women,wearing only underpants and shoes, battled it out on the slopes in front of a cheering crowd of some 17,000 people. The winner of the race was awarded a check for around $700 dollars.  Check out the cold video!
