Presently we offer two classes, Capoeira and Integrated African Fighting Arts, which are described below.
Our style of Capoeira is Capoeira Angola de Sao Bento Grande, a style of the art hailing from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. While there are numerous reasons to learn Capoeira, I offer four basic reasons below:
- Learn how to defend yourself from attack
- Gain greater control over your body and your health
- Learn how to play musical instruments and sooth your mind
- Join an international cohort of Black people dedicated to the liberation of Africans worldwide
Capoeira class times
Wednesday, 6:00 PM-7:00 PM CST
Friday, 6:30 PM-7:30 PM CST
