Capoeira Classes for Kids

ONLINE CLASSES: To see our schedule of online classes visit our home page.

Due to Covid-19, we are offering only one KIDS CLASS - intermediate level - THURSDAYS from 6 to 7 PM.  Please check back here or email us if you have any questions:  info.achebrasil@gmail.com

We offer classes to children and youth from 3 years old to 12 years old.   13 years old may take the adult classes.   

Capoeira Aché Brasil highlights strength, coordination, flexibility and agility.  We emphasize positive energy and improving one's health, confidence and well being.  The word, “Aché” comes from the Yoruba language meaning, “everything positive in the universe,” and it is in this spirit that we educate our students the philosophy, the movements and techniques of Capoeira.

At our academy, it is crucial that the instructors have the ability to teach and have excellent social skills.  Technical expertise alone does not make a good teacher.  A good instructor has to be mature and has to create a positive environment for the child to learn, establishing a positive student-teacher relationship.  Children need an environment where they can be successful in order to learn and be happy.
