What is the right age for kids to start  Capoeira?

Every child is different. However we believe that around 5 years is a good age to start a martial art such as Capoeira. Our kids program caters for 5 - 14 years old and focuses on making self-defence and physical education fun. We use conditioning and skill-oriented games to engage and challenge kids. The benefits go way beyond the physical. It will also teach your kids valuable life skills such as courtesy, confidence, focus, discipline, team work, mental strength, and self-control.

What if I am currently injured?

Depending on the nature of your injury there is a chance you can train around it. Have a chat with your professor to discuss options. Even if you have to sit out a few classes we still strongly encourage coming along to watch and learn.

 
What will I learn?

Capoeira you will also learn self defence, acrobatics, kicks and rhythms.

 

What do I need to bring?

All you need for your first class is comfortable clothing. A fitted t-shirt  and  shorts are preferable for No Gi classes. For women tights and a top is fine. A water bottle and a small towel for drying off after the class is also a good idea.
