Capoeira Academy of Gainesville

THE CAPOEIRA ACADEMY OF GAINESVILLE is dedicated to providing the very best capoeira instruction in a fun, family oriented environment. Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian Martial Art which includes elements of physical and mental strength, beauty and power. It encompasses a vast spectrum of movement and culture; it incorporates kicks, ground movements, self-defense, acrobatics, music and tradition. It is played in a circle with two members engaging in various attacks and defenses while maintaining a melodic fluidity. These movements are driven by the rhythms emanating from the roda’s instruments and vocal song. Capoeira was created by African slaves in Brazil over 500 years ago through Mestre Bimba and others, has since become a recognized art form. Capoeira can be learned and practiced by anyone regardless of gender, age or physical limitations and its benefits are evident in all who take up its practice. It is a beautiful expression, which is best understood through active experience.

We offer regularly scheduled classes, flexible payment options, private classes, Portuguese classes and even afterschool child care. We are committed to helping people attain their fitness goals while at the same time exposing them to Capoeira's attendant Afro-Brazilian culture.
