“We are very pleased with the opportunity that our family has to practice capoeira together. Capoeira for us is more than a martial art or dance class: Capoeira for us is the possibility to spend a quality time together...
adult student and mother of 14 year old student
“My daughter has been doing capoeira now close to a year. She started right after she turned 5 years old. At that age her attention span was pretty short but she continues
to be very interested in continuing capoeira...

Building strong bodies and confident kids
Parents today face a number of challenges. We all want our children to be
healthy, safe, and grow up to become successful members of society. It's a
full-time job just to make sure our kids are surrounded by the types of
influences that will lead them that way. If you feel the same way we do we hope
you'll come in for an intro program
and see what we have to offer.
Good parents find ways to surround their children with role-models that have
high expectations and live the principles that they teach. That's what you'll find at Brazilian Capoeira. You'll see your child blossom with confidence
that will have a lasting effect on all parts of their life.
What if your child was able to better focus at school and around the house? Is it important to you that your child pays attention when you talk to
them and follows through on what they've started? Capoeira training is hard. Classes are fast-paced and exciting. Our instructors are all trained to teach more than just
martial arts in our classes. Students will learn to develop focus and confidence, and you'll see that translate pretty quickly into their school
work and home life. In this program
kids get positive feedback for developing things like focus, confidence, and leadership skills along with the capoeira training they receive.
More than a martial art
Kids have a great time learning kicks, dodges, and acrobatic movements. The physical part of capoeira is a great full-body workout (for kids and adults) and
this is definitely something that a parent of a high-energy kid can appreciate.
You'll see your child develop some real skill and ability in this cultural
art-form. But capoeira is so much more than just a martial arts class.
Capoeira is performed to live music and all students learn to play the
traditional instruments. Your child will learn the fundamentals of capoeira
music and how to sing the traditional songs in Portuguese. (Did you know that
more people in South America speak Portuguese than Spanish?) We have seen over
and over again that development of musical ability is a strong indicator of
performance in school, especially in math. Once again, learning to play an
instrument helps students to develop focus and confidence, and leads to success
in other parts of their life.
Cultural awareness like that developed through this capoeira program is a major
part of what helps children succeed in a modern world. Foreign language skills
and an understanding of cultures that are different than their own will help
your child to work better with others, and know how to build relationships that
will help them to reach their own goals.
So, what are you waiting for?
