Default Capoeria / Martial Arts

I've been wanting to get into capoeira, or maybe a different martial art, for the sake of achieveing something, as well as a way to meet new people. However, I feel scared about going into a group of people who I've never met to try something that they would all be better than me at. I don't cope well with situations like that, but in my head I can picture myself being good, and having friends there like months into the future.

Any advice to help me overcome the fear? Also, does anybody do capoeria? What's it like starting out?

my boyfriends into capoeria as well but im sure he has the exact problem as you. he is very and gets anxiety. i think he wants to ge tinto it or martial arts but he has that same fear. i think alot of people have that fear though. if you start a class thats for beginners everyone would be on the same level. if anything..id just laugh at myself during the beginning. itll distinguish some of the self consciousness.

Well, it looks like I'm gonna be starting next Thursday, with my friend who is already very experienced. I just hope I don't look too bad, and manage to have a little fun!
