Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our students say:

“Through Capoeira, I have made friends in 7 different countries, learned to speak a language, play an instrument, and to stand on my head. Even if you just come for the exercise, you won’t regret it!”

Jake(Bracelete)

Teacher

‘i have been training Capoeira with Mestre Papa-Leguas since August. Already my flexibility and fitness are improving. There are so many elements to capoeira – movement, music, language, history, community – there is something in it for everyone, no matter what age or ability you start. It is totally different to any other class I’ve tried. Give it a go! ‘

Laura (Lolly)

NHS

“Capoeira has helped me to keep fit, gives me opportunities to socialise and meet great people. Capoeira also exposed me to different amazing aspects of Brazilian culture and the link Capoeira has to African culture continues to fascinate me. I am grateful for everything that Capoiera has given me.”
