For schools and organizations that serve young people, we facilitate Capoeira FUNdamentals, a fun and engaging class that introduces the primary elements of the movements, music, and history of capoeira. We also encourage Parent Leaders to organize Capoeira FUNdamentals programs for their children.
Throughout the year we hosts Family Rodas for our community. In the roda everyone gets a chance to play the game, make music, eat dinner together, and share in the positive vibes. Check the calendar for the next roda!

He strives to help every child tap into their individual strengths, while also inspiring them to practice more challenging movements and try out more complicated sequences.
