Yes, your child will gain physical skills such as self-defense and coordination. Even more, through our kids' capoeira program, your child will develop life skills of respect, calmness, and attention that will help them succeed in school and in their interpersonal relationships, in a safe and fun learning environment.
Our kids program focuses on developing your child into a well-rounded individual through the development of not just physical skills, but also language and music skills. Your child will learn basic Portuguese from our instructors, and will also learn various Brazilian instruments. Many of the children in our program begin singing songs in Portuguese within three months, due to our excellent music class. Gymnastics, physical conditioning, and self-defense make up the content of each capoeira class.
Mastering capoeira takes dedication and commitment--two essential traits your child will use in all other aspects of their life. All children will have the opportunity over time to progress through a colored belt rank system. This provides the building blocks for learning how to set and achieve goals, and brings a positive social standing and improves their overall self-evaluation.
