We're your kind of capoeira training center. If you're willing to put the time and effort into maximizing your learning experience & fitness results, you need the right people to partner with you. We're here to get you going and will remain here to help you progress at your pace along the way.
We have provided programming to thousands of youth and adult students over the years. With each student the community grows and there's a sense of family that eventually takes on it's own meaning within each student.
We believe that mentoring youth is critical to their mental and physical development. Youth learn to conquer the physical demands of training and the mental demands of overcoming their perceived limitations; and more!
