What is Capoeira?
Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance and music. It was created in Brazil mainly by descendants of African slaves with Brazilian native influences, probably beginning in the 16th century. It is known by quick and complex moves, using mainly power, speed, and leverage for leg sweeps. Try also searching YouTube for capoeira roda or just capoeira

= WHAT IF I HAVE NEVER DONE CAPOEIRA BEFORE?
You have to start somewhere? We start by teaching you the basic movements and you take it from there.
= I HAVE NEVER TAKEN ANY TYPE OF MARTIAL ART OR DANCE CLASS. CAN I STILL TRY CAPOEIRA?
Capoeira does not require that you have prior experience on any type of physical activity!
= WHAT IF I AM NOT FLEXIBLE OR NOT IN BEST PHYSICAL CONDITION?
Don’t let this discourage you! Capoeira is for everyone!!! Young or old, short or tall, girl or boy! Of course, the more you train, the faster you will see results!
= HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO LEARN CAPOEIRA?
Think of it as learning a new language. The more of the language you learn, the more clearly you can express yourself to others. If your goal is to have a conversation with someone that consists of, “Hi, how are you?” and “I am fine, thank you”, you should be able to do that within a month or two. If you plan to discuss world politics or philosophy, be prepared to spend more time learning the language.
= WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
For your first class, comfortable workout wear is fine. Should you decide to sign-up, we have uniforms available for purchase.
= SHOULD I BRING ANYTHING?
Open mind and positive attitude! Bring a water bottle.
