What is Capoeira?
Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian martial art that combines dance, self-defense, acrobatics, and music. We practice Capoeira like a game. The players try to outsmart or outmaneuver the other using flowing movements, acrobatics, kicks, dodges, and foot sweeps inside the circle known as the Capoeira “Roda.” Capoeira is art, music, culture, sport, education, and life philosophy enjoyed by men, women, and children of all ages in Brazil, the United States and worldwide.
Why practice capoeira?
Capoeira is fun and offers a variety of benefits. It is a healthy form of exercise that can help you develop more strength, endurance, flexibility, and agility and help you achieve better physical and mental balance. You can make new friends, learn self-defense and music, express yourself creatively, and learn about culture and history. With time Capoeira can become a path to knowledge, self-mastery, and liberation of one’s body and mind.
Classes are taught by Prof. Steve of the Body and Movement Capoeira Angola Association, founded by Mestre Angola in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil.
