Martial Art Movements

Capoeira is a unique martial art composed of powerful kicks, fluid acrobatic movements, and feats of strength.


Capoeira is one of the few martial arts with music. Instruments like the berimbau, atabaque and pandeiro are played by the bateria. Songs follow a call and response. The lead singer dictates the pace and rules of the capoeira game through song.


Capoeira is for suitable for all ages, fitness levels, and personalities. It can be playful and friendly. It can be fast paced and exciting. It can be slow and methodical. Capoeira gives you the tools to express yourself through movement.
