A Chat with Capoeira Volta ao Mundo
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Capoeira is a unique and fun martial art form from Brazil. It combines movement in the form of kicks, defenses, and sometimes acrobatics. Music is an integral component of Capoeira and songs and instrument playing are taught also. Through Capoeira, students build confidence, self-defense, and more!
What’s one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
With Capoeira, students create their own style and unique individuality with self-expression through movement. Students learn technique and coordination, gain flexibility and an understanding of Brazilian culture, and become part of a supportive martial arts environment from the first day on.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Mestre Beck has been teaching Capoeira in Maine for over 15 years and has trained in Capoeira for nearly 38 years. His goal is to share the beautiful art form of Capoeira with students of all levels, introduce Capoeira to new students, and share Brazilian martial arts in the community and beyond.
