A Chat with Capoeira Academy of Gainesville
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
The Capoeira Academy of Gainesville is the only school in Gainesville dedicated solely to instruction in the Afro-Brazilian art form of Capoeira. Our head instructor has more than 20 years of martial arts experience and is committed to providing you with the very best instruction available.
What’s one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
Don’t be afraid to try something new! Capoeira is a culture unlike any other and as such will introduce you to movements and ideas that you may never have encountered before. Embrace the chance to participate in something truly special and unique.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Being long-time students of Capoeira, we firmly believe in the power of Capoeira to positively influence lives, yet we saw that many Americans had never encountered it before. We opened our doors to share our culture and passion in a fun, family-oriented environment open to all ability levels.
What do you love most about your job?
I love being able to help people achieve their goals. For me there is no feeling in the world that can compare to the one I get when I see one of our students progressing in both physical capability and simultaneously broadening his or her horizons through the study of this amazing art form.
