WHAT WILL CAPOEIRA CLASSES OR CLUB TEACH ME?

Capoeira Martial Art teacherCapoeira Classes are fun and are marked by fluid acrobatic play. These include feints, take downs, extensive use of leg sweeps, kicks and head butts.

Less frequently used techniques include elbow strikes, slaps, punches and body throws.

Capoeira lessons teach a combination of attack and defence, which give a game of capoeira its perceived 'fluidity' and choreography. Music plays an important part in a Capoeira game, as it tells the capoeiristas how to play.

This Martial Art teaches students the subtleties of anticipating another person's intentions by practicing evasive techniques, combining elements of attack and defence.
