Axé Capoeira Toronto
Explosive kicks. Gravity-defying backflips. Raucous beats. Capoeira matches act as a colourful form of cultural expression in addition to a powerful form of self-defence. Though Marcos Martins—also known by his capoeira name, Paraiba—was born in Brazil, it wasn't until he moved to Canada as a child that he discovered capoeira. At 14 years old, he began training with Mestre Barrão, an internationally renowned capoeirista and the founder of Axé capoeira, which has schools around the world. Marcos went on to open Axé Capoeira Toronto, where he carries out his mentor's mission to preserve capoeira as a fighting style, art form, and vital part of Brazilian culture.
During beginner capoeira classes, the instructors teach the form's basic martial arts and dance moves, as well as musical elements and basic aerobics. Advanced classes train students in the more tricky motions and the holistic knowledge necessary to advance in capoeira's belt system, such as how to predict gravity's current strength before executing a backflip. CapoeiraFit women's-only classes impart self-defence skills during high-energy, whole-body workouts that focus on core muscles. In kids’ classes, wee ones cultivate self-esteem as they train their bodies and learn capoeira's noble history. The classes also engage youngsters' creative instincts as they sing, dance, and learn to play instruments.

“Axe Capoeira is a wonderful place to achieve a wide variety of things. You can get fit, learn about Brazilian culture, be introduced to Brazilian music and instruments, learn acrobatics and learn a martial art. The instructors are very easy to talk, very willing to help and above all are patient and detailed. They make the most intimidating moves look flawless yet when they break the moves down it is something even the most out of shape individual (me) is willing to attempt! :D I will definitely become a member after the beginners course ends! Salve”
“Amazing fun and great experience.”
