The atmosphere is always friendly and lively, the instructors are always watching out for everyone's wellbeing during class and make sure you go at an appropriate pace. As an asthmatic student I still feel like I can participate wholeheartedly.

After a gym injury with my shoulder I was debating about starting capoeira for a long time ...and my athleticism had only come down in the meantime. Felt the push to come by class this evening for a free trial and had a blast! Instructor Brucutu is a great and friendly teacher.

Update: I have been training under Brucutu for over a year now, coming to class more regularly. I have learned so much more and the group has become a second family to me.

I highly recommend joining Brucutu's class as you learn so much more than a martial art, you learn the culture, the history, and develop irreplaceable bonds with your fellow Capoeirista. Update 2: It has been ...
