Capoeira is played as a partner game, where there are two winners in the spirit of competition. Training for and playing Abada-Capoeira requires you to work out your body as well as your mind. Participants will learn various exercises, drills, games, music, acrobatics, and martial arts with our teaching model. Capoeira commands great dignity and respect from its students. The physical aspects promote good balance, strength and flexibility, while the mental aspects encourage improvisation, strategic thinking and progressive achievement. It is a great way to stay physically fit, enjoy and honor the music, and celebrate Afro-Brazilian culture. All levels are welcome according to grade groups listed above - grades are broken up in order to facilitate physical capability and understanding. Classes will be conducted via Zoom. Instructors will primarily be teaching the class from a local studio and/or outdoors. Participants should expect to use up to a 3-4 foot square of space (but we'll make accommodations for everyone who participates!). Students should wear clothes that are comfortable to move in. Bare feet or non slip shoes are recommended. Come to learn something fun and have fun learning!
