New to capoeira?

The best way to learn what it is, is to try it out. You can watch this video and reach out if you have any questions. During each class, you will learn music and movements unique to capoeira (as well as physical conditioning) and you will get immediate feedback as I am watching each student. You can ask questions at any time. Hope to see you in class!
