Adult Classes – Fundamentals, Level 2, Level 3
Adults will discover one of the most enjoyable workouts available in capoeira classes. Students build strength, increase stamina and flexibility as they learn capoeira’s exciting kicks and acrobatic movements. Studying capoeira is a rich cultural experience as students also learn Portuguese language, about Brazilian history and culture, and how to play the traditional instruments used in making the music of capoeira. Forget the gym. Get in the best shape of your life and have a great time doing it.
Rank Advancement – All Current Students
There is a ranking system in capoeira, similar to that in other traditional martial arts. Brazilian Capoeira hosts rank advancement events twice a year (usually in January and July.) These two-day events are called “Batizados” and in addition to an exciting ceremony where they receive their new “cords” students have the opportunity to train with notable guest instructors from throughout the capoeira world.
