Capoeira (“kap-oo-ay-rah”) is an Afro-Brazilian martial art developed in the 1500s by African and Indigenous slaves in Brazil as a form of self-defence from their oppressors. It is marked by its agile and tricky movements that may be executed anywhere from an upside-down position, to a gravity defying kick. It has a strong acrobatic component in some styles and is always played with music. Modern Capoeira is one of the most diverse martial arts in the world today, with creativity, music, self-expression, and strategic thinking as much a part of the core curriculum as physical training and fitness. Students will build strength, increase stamina and flexibility as they learn capoeira’s exciting kicks and acrobatic movements and have a great time doing it. All experience levels welcome.
