What is


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.

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.
