ADULT CAPOEIRA

  • A ritualistic form of self-defense demanding physical discipline that fuses martial arts, dance, music and acrobatics. Students learn to play percussion instruments, sing in Portuguese, kicks and attacks, defenses and acrobatics. History of Capoeira and geography are incorporated as well.  Capoeira originated among enslaved Africans in Brazil and is the only martial art done with music. For teens 14 years to adults.  The cord system follows that of the United Capoeira Association. 

 

KIDS CAPOEIRA

  • Get your child involved! We offer two classes a week geared for kids ages 7-13. The essentials are taught in a fun manner that builds strength, coordination and self-defense as well as musical abilities.  This class uses a modified version of the adult cord system and Axé cards to mark a child's progress, so they are fully prepared to enter the adult classes when they reach the appropriate age and skill level.
