A Chat with The Capoeira Center
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Capoeira is a unique martial art. Born out of oppression of African peoples in Brazil, the focus of our art is on building community through empowerment. In modern times that means not only becoming physically fit but also bettering our selves as people and uplifting our community.
Is your location strictly for adults, or can kids participate as well?
We currently offer classes for people ages 5-105.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
When my Mestre retired, I received the honor of continuing his life’s work. My inspiration came from my teacher’s belief in my heart and my abilities and my own desire to keep his lineage alive! By teaching, I am keeping capoeira alive and well and that is my inspiration each and every class I give.
What do you love most about your job?
I love playing capoeira the most! Anyone who comes to our school, and sees me play, can’t help but feel the sheer joy capoeira brings. There is nothing better than sweating and smiling with good people!
