There’s nothing quite like capoeira, the Brazilian martial art that more resembles a dance than any other discipline you’ve seen. Every time it’s on display, it’s got a lovely mix of graceful moves, music, amazing acrobatics, and skill. But that’s just the surface – here are some reasons why you should try capoeira and see for yourself what makes it so great!

Capoeira burns 500-700 calories per hour, and it’s just a blast to participate in it. Having a workout that you actually enjoy and is actually strenuous can be a rarity – why not make it a mix of dance and martial arts?

Cartwheels, high kicks, constant motion – capoeira requires a lot of speed and flexibility to go with it, and a lot of strength to ensure that it matters when you actually connect, so it trains you in all three at once.

Capoeira is a community affair! All that dancing and music and the seeming resemblance to a party aren’t window dressing – it’s a celebration of a rich cultural background that tells a story of a harder time in Brazilian history.

Capoeira truly emphasizes the art in martial art – it lets you express yourself in the form of your fluid movements, and the more you practice, the more effectively you’re able to convey your own feelings in your motion.

Skill, culture, training – these are all great reasons to get into capoeira, but when it boils down to it, the martial art is just plain fun to watch and do! For some, there’s no better reason to just dive into this.

    It’s social.

    ,

    Capoeira is not a solitary sport. It is instead a communal experience that can teach you to respect and relate to others. It is a cultural activity as well as a sport! There is a strong social side to Capoeira.  We can’t speak for every capoeira academy but I know when you join ours you become part of a family.  You will definitely make friends along the way and meet new people from all over the world through capoeira events and practice. Lasting relationships are built and genuine friends are made. The majority of our students (kidsparents, and adult students) spend time with each other after and outside of class time.

    It’s culturally rich.

    ,

    In a time when many martial arts are reduced to aerobic workouts and cookie cutter dojos; Capoeira maintains all of its roots and traditions. The history of capoeira gives it meaning and soul. The way capoeira originated anddeveloped is quite interesting and engaging; it’s important for students to learn a bit about this history of capoeira as it gives what we learn in class much more meaning and depth.

    Develop unshakable confidence

    ,

    Capoeira, quite simply, teaches you to believe in yourself. Capoeira is a total body and body expression and is perfect for instilling a sense of pride and confidence in anyone who practices. As one grows more confident in the martial art, he or she also grows more confident in the ability to express one’s unique voice.

    Not just exercise, Capoeira is an empowering art form, used to express freedomindividuality, and self-expression. You don’t have to become a master to get a lot out of the capoeira experience as the basic moves allow for individual variations and timing.

    It will reduce your stress

    ,

    When you go through an intense capoeira class, your body releases endorphins. This is basically a feel-good hormone that leaves you feeling great, improves your mood, and gives you a feeling of achievement and euphoria. So basically our capoeira classes are a win-win: your body produces more endorphins and you burn more calories. Once you have become a regular in capoeira class you, will begin to notice that at the end of the classes you feel energized and on top of the world!

    Balance and flexibility faster than you think

    ,

    Capoeira will increase your speedagility,flexibility, and balance.  You learn to control your body and realize your body has a whole new range of motion just after a bit of consistent capoeira training. Some capoeira practitioners are right on par with serious yoga practitioners in terms of flexibility. Even those who moderately improve their flexibility lower their risk for injury and increase everyday mobility.

    Opportunity for Family Involvement

    ,

    This benefit could be the most valuable to some families.  Capoeira is an art that is multigenerational! Anyone who wishes to learn the art is able toexperience it. This means that families can participate together in capoeira.  Not every family will take advantage of this possibility, but the ones that do will be greatly enriched.  Families are strengthened when they play and learn together.  When children hit adolescence, family unity and communication might be tried and it is through hobbies and activities that individuals within that family will connect. Capoeira can be a great family strengthener. In closing, capoeira is about YOU. It’s not about what the person next to you is doing or about how high the person in front of you is kicking; but it is about your goals and your development. We are confident that if you give our capoeira program a try, you will accomplish your goals; whether it be weight lossmuscle toningself-defense, or become a capoeira master. You can do it here!
