Learn the fundamental steps of Capoeira in this easy-to-follow and beginner-friendly course.
Explosive kicks. Gravity-defying backflips. Raucous beats. Capoeira matches act as a colourful form of cultural expression in addition to a powerful form of self-defence.
In our Beginner Intro Course, instructors teach the basic martial arts and dance moves, as well as musical elements and basic acrobatics. Everything you need to get moving into a more advanced level… or just enough to follow along in the class, you will get in the Intro. How far you go is completely up to you. You can progress to the intermediate/advanced classes or just follow along for the workout and great energy you’ll feel.
After some months of training, students begin in the more tricky motions and the holistic knowledge necessary to advance in Capoeira’s belt system, such as how to predict gravity’s current strength before executing a backflip, timing and distance for attacks and how to escape from one’s attack. Whether you choose to continue and progress through the belt system, or train for fitness, one thing is for sure: Capoeira is a whole-body workout that strengthens your core muscles, improves flexibility and LIVENS up your day. The classes also engage student’s creative instincts as they sing, dance, and learn to play instruments.
