Where Capoeira Becomes Your Lifestyle


About Capoeira

Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art disguised as a dance and performed to musical instruments and traditional Brazilian songs. It is comprised of specific offensive and defensive movements and, unlike in other martial arts, the participant is constantly in motion because of the basic movement, the ginga.

Our Classes

Join Capoeira and Transform Your Body and Mind


Capoeira is not a solitary sport. It is instead a communal experience that can teach you to respect and relate to others. It is a cultural activity as well as a sport! There is a strong social side to Capoeira.  We can’t speak for every capoeira academy but I know when you join ours you become part of a family.  You will definitely make friends along the way and meet new people from all over the world through capoeira events and practice. Lasting relationships are built and genuine friends are made. The majority of our students (kids, parents, and adult students) spend time with each other after and outside of class time.



capoeira will help you to develop more strength, endurance, flexibility, and agility than your average kickboxing or aerobics class. The basis for capoeira is the constant motion of your body, side-to-side and front to back. You’ll develop a strong upper body, core, and buns of steel quickly, shifting your weight back and forth with knees bent and arms swinging. Now continue that back and forth movement for an hour and see if it doesn’t do more for your butt than a bicycle seat.
