Description of Capoeira

Upstate CapoeiraWe’re proud to partner with Professora Risadinha of ASCAB Capoeira and Contra Mestre Neguinho of Cordão de Ouro to bring this beautiful art to Upstate, South Carolina!

Developed by slaves during the turbulent colonial period of Brazil’s history, Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian martial art and an immersive Brazilian cultural experience that incorporates elements of fight, dance, play, acrobatics, strength, flexibility, history, endurance, music, community, friendship, and freedom of expression. It is a life-style art, with the power to completely change the health and wellness of participants. In fact, its ability to develop unparalleled athleticism has led to a rise in it’s use by many of the most sought after personal trainers, fitness professionals, and movement coaches. This old Brazilian tradition has become the foundation of many cutting-edge training camps for elite athletes and athletic teams around the world.

You don’t need to be an athlete or have experience in martial arts, gymnastics or dance to participate. Once you start, you’ll be amazed at how quickly your athleticism, precision, and coordination exceed your expectations.

Don’t wait to join us, a year from now you’ll wish you’d started now!
