Capoeira Brasil

Capoeira, a form of martial arts, has its roots in Brazil's slave trade: over almost 500 years of oppression, the slaves mingled with the natives, exchanged traditions, and developed capoeira, which treats fighting less like a pattern of techniques and more like a free-form game or conversation.

Participants create a circle known as a roda around two fighters. Observers outside the circle clap their hands and play instruments to one of four distinct rhythms while singing songs in Portuguese. Meanwhile, the duo in the center of the circle enacts a kind of physical dialogue by exchanging sweeping kicks, takedowns, and acrobatic moves. In addition to teaching self-defense, capoeira encourages courtesy and safety through a system of etiquette. Big on community and small on ego, it offers something for everyone and infuses participants with a sense of well-being and an appreciation of tradition.

It's this tradition that the three founders of Capoeira Brasil sought to preserve. Now founding member Mestre Boneco continues the quest to share capoeira's unique blend of music, culture, and martial arts. As the principal instructor at Capoeira Brasil in Los Angeles, Mestre shares the skills he has cultivated with his diverse and supportive training staff. In addition to teaching students, Capoeira Brasil also hosts workshops at universities, seminars, and festivals.
