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.

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.
