  • Do i need any previous knowledge to learn capoeira?

    no previous knowledge is required. All courses are designed in such a way that anyone in good health may enroll.

  • Don't i need a partner in order to learn capoeira?

    Capoeira has an individual aspect and a martial, strategic aspect. these courses are directed mostly towards the individual aspects of the art. such as technique, body control, strength, flexibility and personal skill.

  • How long does it take to learn each course?

    Each course contains 7-10 video classes, which break down each movement and concept down to its core and build up from there. each class comes with a downloadable training program designed to maximize your learning and prepare your body for the next step. If practiced each day for about 30-40 minutes one may get a good grip on concepts, skills and execution in about 30 days.
