Capoeira for Kids

The benefits of Capoeira for children are endless. It is a great physical activity for developing their coordination, group work and leadership skills. It encourages them to explore the joys of being active and interactive with other children. We adopt philosophy of "learning through play" with younger children in order to teach them through games and fun activities. The more they practice and grow, we introduce "learning from play and train" incorporating martial art aspect of Capoeira. Gymnastics without pressure, martial arts without the conflict and music without the rigidity, A safe, fun place for your child to experience all that the art of Capoeira has to offer.
We run multiple classes for kids at different age groups. Classes are £7 per session payable in term blocks.
