Class Experience

Students will learn the fundamentals of flowing in Capoeira, including the mindset and skills. 

Capoeira mindset involves:
1. Always Ginga
2. Only touch your Hands, Feet, and Head to the Floor
3. Orbit a Target
4. Try moves on both sides

By approaching training this way, all of the following skills will come much easier.

Capoeira Skills & Concepts:
1. Ginga
2. Martial Arts
3. Acrobatics
4. Music, and 
5. Afro-Brazilian Culture. 

—GINGA—
Essential movements to develop rhythm, cardio, and coordination.
—DEFENSE—
Agility and strength development for self-protection based in 3 different types of Capoeira evasions.
—KICKS—
Essential linear and spinning kicks to develop spacial- and body-awareness.
—FLOREIOS—
Know how to safely go upside down on the hands and learn beginner acrobatic “floreio” techniques.

History of Capoeira
Pop Culture & Capoeira Trends
Know what Portuguese movements and terms mean in English.

Capoeira combines these elements to build self-confidence, cultural awareness, and body awareness, and spatial awareness, and athleticism.
I am offering this class because self-expression through Capoeira is what I have dedicated my life to. Capoeira is a family practice and discipline, and I have been teaching various movement arts such as Martial Arts Tricking, Parkour, and Gymnastics for over 10 years. I also practice regularly myself and travel for community events around the world.
Homework is either a skill, combo, or challenge that we performed in class.
8x8 minimum open space White pants, Chair (or similarly sized object), barefeet, towel, water bottle, and a clear camera angle.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Learners are assessed by being able to perform in all fundamental areas of Capoeira in Level 1-3. If a level is completed, learners will receive a certificate of completion.

1 hour 5 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian martial art that prioritizes its cultural values as well as Afro-liberation. Representation and history is huge in Capoeira, so references of Capoeira’s past is included. Capoeira was conceived during times of slavery in Brazil and those stories are a part of Capoeira’s origin and history.

Also, we will go upside down sometimes to do handstands, or be spinning to do kicks. It’s important that learners have enough space (8x8 minimum) to practice and train.
