The Capoeira Experience


35 per session - Virtual OK

I will teach about capoeira, not only capoeira itself, but the other essential elements of it's existence. I had trained capoeira regional (the fast, flippy version) and some Angola (the slow, sneaky version) for a few years and will show you fundamentals and acrobatics. We will also learn about Afro-Brazilian culture, history, and music as well as fun facts about Brazil, some Brazilian Portuguese greetings and phrases, and my own serious and silly experiences with modern-day capoeira. Depending on the mood and what you are most interested in, lessons will vary.

Training & Qualifications

I am a 6th year capoeira student under the supervision of Mestre Demetrius of Centro Cultural Aruandê Capoeira in Houston, TX and former competitive gymnast of nine years. I have been to many capoeira events in here Texas and other places and have met many people from all over the world. And yes, I have been to Brazil. :)

Availability & Preferences

I have various hours available depending on the day.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!
