Capoeira is excellent for children of all ages, as it is a Brazilian non-contact martial art that combines dance, kicks, acrobatics, music, singing and percussion woven into one fun and amazing activity for everyone.

Capoeira teaches children balance, flexibility, strength, agility, confidence, co-ordination, fitness and is a lot of fun! Classes are taught with games and activities to keep kids interested and engaged in learning. Brazilian music, singing and percussion are always added to the end of the class to add to the cultural experience. Safety always comes first and we have adult helpers in addition to our Instructor to help children join in and enjoy their class and we practice acrobatics on a mat with assistance until the children feel that they can try out the moves safely on their own.

We teach a stratfied class according to age and skill level, where younger children 3-5 years and beginners begin at 9:30am with more game based learning and base moves. Then all children join together for music at 10am. After this children 5-12 years and advanced level children can join a more structured class where moves are taught in sequences and are also taught in more complex games for their developmental age and skill level.
Capoeira can take time to get the right technique, so persistence and coming regularly can help children build on their skills and improve their game.

Parents can join in, but we generally find that children quickly get over their nerves by interacting with their peers and parents enjoying watching the class from the sidelines! Children need to wear loose fitting clothing suitable for sports and can play in bare feet or soft soled shoes.
Please bring a water bottle to keep hydrated.
