Capoeira is a strong educational instrument; it is based on strong values such as mutual respect, equality and integrity. In addition, kids naturally love to move.
Capoeira is based on continuous, rhythmic movements that increase strength, endurance, balance, flexibility and coordination. Running, jumping and cartwheels come naturally to children and are essential parts of Capoeira’s movement. More than anything, capoeira is about promoting a healthy lifestyle.

Did you know?
The first thing one notices when watching Capoeira is the music and it’s instruments. Capoeira is played to the sound of a long bow like instrument called the Berimbau. This along with a tambourine and conga like drum comprise of the rhythm section of the Capoeira ensemble. The lyrics, music and tempo all effect the way each Capoeira game is played. A capoeirista (or player) must learn many different songs and rhythms in order to effectively play a good game of Capoeira. When watching the game played, spectators are normally in awe from the movements. The game is played in a circle, with the players in the middle and the musicians at the foot of the circle.
