What will my kid learn and how will it benefit them?
Capoeira is a Brazilian Martial Art that disguises as a dance. It is very beneficial for kids and teenagers as it teaches the importance of discipline, respect, honor, self defense and the value of friendship. Capoeira also helps to develop musicality by incorporating singing, clapping, drumming, and playing various musical instruments.
The kids will learn defense and attack techniques that will increase their confidences which often helps kids with anti-bullying and social interactions.
It also helps them to be the kid with the coolest tricks in class due to Capoeira’s acrobatics aspects. During class kids work on movements such as handstands, cartwheels, rolls, headstands, jumps, back bridges and kicks.
The thing that helps kids the most is that Capoeira is mostly non-contact, it allows the kid to feel safe while executing techniques and practicing coordination and athleticism.
What to wear to class?
Please dress the kids in sweat pants or Martial Art pants and a white T-Shirt.
Our traditional Capoeira uniforms must be purchased, speak to the teacher.
Pants (Abada): $40
