Capoeira Brazilian Martial Arts

Classes presented by Brazilian Beats

Instructor: Holly

Tuesday  & Thursday

This Brazilian art form combines dance, combat, rhythm, music and acrobatics. Capoeira Is so much more than just a martial arts class. A great workout, but that’s just the beginning. You’re constantly learning new things and challenging yourself in new and exciting ways.

Capoeira, More than just a martial arts program!

What are the benefits from Capoeira Training? 

You’ll be amazed how training capoeira will positively affect almost every area of your life. Whether your goal is to lose weight, develop flexibility, endurance, or strength, you’ll find the help you need in capoeira class. Capoeira students find they build confidence, learn to step outside of their comfort zone, develop leadership skills, and form lasting relationships. And let’s face it: this stuff is cool.

Can anybody train Capoeira?

There’s a lot to learn in capoeira! It’s like taking a martial arts class, a dance class, a gymnastics class, and a music class all at once. Every new student can expect to be good as some parts of class and be challenged by others. At Brazilian Capoeira we have classes for children as young as 4 through Adults of any age. We believe everyone can benefit from capoeira as they refine their strengths and have the opportunity to improve their weaknesses. Previous experience in dance or martial arts is not required.
 

What are classes like?

Classes will consist of an energetic warm-up, strength and flexibility training and technical instruction. Students will train movements individually and in set sequences with partners. Capoeira classes are fast-paced and students can expect to get a great aerobic and strength building workout – but the movements are so much fun that you probably won’t notice how hard you’re working! Some class time each week will be devoted to learning to play the traditional instruments used in capoeira and to singing songs in Portuguese. One of the most exciting things about training capoeira is that students get to apply the things they are learning on a regular basis by playing the “game” of capoeira in the “roda.”
