A Chat with Ogden Capoeira
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? Capoeira is a unique Brazilian art form that combines martial arts, acrobatics, and dance-like movement performed to the beat of traditional Brazilian instruments. It was developed between the 16th and 19th centuries by African slaves in Brazil during the slave trade as a form of self-defense
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged? Capoeira is for everyone and all ages. Classes are built around each student so that they are challenged physically, mentally and to try something new.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business? Capoeira has always given me an outlet, a mentor, and the strength and I want to share what capoeira can bring into our lives and spread the word about this amazing practice.
What do you love most about your job? I love the unbelievable source of energy capoeira brings when someone learns how express themselves in the game of capoiera. When students are able to accomplish something in the game with everyone supporting them.
