  • Capoeira Resistencia
    Clad in white, yellow, and green uniforms, the capoeiristas stand in a circle, drumming, clapping, or playing instruments to help keep time for the duo at the center of their formation. These two performers circle each other, tumbling and kicking, seeing how fast they can go without ever striking their counterpart. Though the pace is fast and the potential blows powerful, the match is more festive than ferocious, its participants playful instead of pugilistic. This combination of physicality and fun forms the core Capoeira Resistencia's teaching philosophy, and curricula of its every class. More than self-defense or athleticism, the gym's instructors teach students to embrace experimentation and confidence through the art of capoeira. They help students master the art's basic movements—which generally resemble a more measured form of breakdancing—before layering in new techniques, pushing each pupil towards a state of lithe flexibility and physical strength along the way.
