Capoeira (Portuguese pronunciation: [kapuˈejɾɐ]) is an Afro-Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance, acrobatics, and music. It was developed in Brazil mainly by Angolans, at the beginning of the 16th century. It is known for its quick and complex maneuvers, predominantly using power, speed, and leverage across a wide variety of kicks, spins and other techniques.
“Capoeira and art, wisdom, knowledge and culture of an oppressed people. which enchants both the poor and the rich”
“capoeira e arte, sabedoria, conhecimento e cultura de um povo oprimido. que encanta tanto os pobres quantos os ricos.”

Awesome. Started with putting my son in the kids class… I could only watch for so many weeks before I needed to do it myself. Started at age 41 and it’s been amazing: fitness, strength, flexibility…and connection to a martial art history and community that’s one of a kind. This is the real thing.
An exceptional extension of the Capoeira Malês school. You will not be disappointed if you come and experience these classes and community!
Contra Mestre Jaba is an AMAZING teacher! I feel like I learn more and my appreciation for the art grows with every class. I would highly recommend this class to anyone looking to get healthier or learn a martial art that is truely fun and exciting.
