What is Capoeira?

Capoeira Is a unique Martial art originating in Brazil. 

It combines combat, dance, acrobatic movements, and rhythm. 

An African seed planted on Brazilian soil, Capoeira originated as a cry for liberation and a longing for freedom.

 Today it is practiced as a game that promotes self-expression and teaches improvisation.


Capoeira is movement and connection. 


Come and be a part of one of the fastest-growing movement practices in the world.

  • I have never done martial arts or dance, can I still participate?
    Absolutely! Capoeira is a great way to get into Movement. Our Classes are designed to challenge all levels of practitioners and zero experience or abilities are needed to start. Our teachers use a patented methodology, developed and proven over 25 years. You will progress at your own pace in a safe and enjoyable manner.
  • What should I wear?
    Comfortable, loose sports clothes. No Shorts or sleeveless shirts please, since some of the movements are inverted. Most participants train barefoot but flexible thin-soled shoes are also acceptable.
  • How can I prepare for my first class?
    Please arrive 15 minutes before class to orient yourself to the location and meet the teacher. Bring a positive attitude and a smile, we will do the rest.
  • Is there a belt system & how do I progress through it?
    Yes, we have a curriculum and a proprietary methodology. Every year students graduate through a belt system based on their attendance and progress. When you join the community you will receive all the information.
  • Do I need a partner?
    No a partner is not necessary but we highly encourage you to bring a friend since it has been proven to help with consistency and motivation towards achieving your goals.
  • Is it ok if I'm a bit late on my first day?
    Classes start on time with a specific warm-up and physical preparation. We can not accept students that did not warm up for safety reasons. Plan to arrive 15 min before class starts. If you are late you are more than welcome to sit in and watch the class.
  • How long is each class?
    Class duration is 60-90 min depending on the location and level of the class. Please check our class schedule for more details.
  • How long before I can expect to see results?
    Every student is unique, starting with different abilities and progressing at their own pace. Many students feel that after 8 sessions they begin to feel comfortable and Usually after 3 months they surprise themselves and others. Once you get the hang of things your teacher will invite you for a goal-setting conversation where you can focus on personal achievements.
