Capoeira

Capoeira

Capoeira (pronounced cap-wearer) is a Brazilian martial art form, combining self-defence, acrobatics, dance, music and song.

It was developed by slaves who used it to disguise the fact that they were practising fight moves. Capoeira is ‘played’ (it’s known as the ‘game’, or jogo) in a circle called a roda, accompanied by music and singing. Only the hands and feet touch the floor. 

Don’t be put off joining a capoeira class because you’re not a gymnast or acrobat. Beginners are not expected to be able to do cartwheels and handstands from the outset. However, your fitness will build from day one and after a few months of training, you might be surprised what you can do.

I’ve been attending Bath Capoeira with my friend for around a year now, we both absolutely love Capoeira.

The sessions are engaging, energising and like a whole body workout. Becasue the instructor is a trained massage therapist too, he is very conscious and knowledgeable, making sure every person is working within their own body’s abilities. Very important when training.
Highly recommend for all ages.
