CAPOEIRA FOR KIDS

Reni Rerreira, our Capoeira instructor

Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art combining elements of fight, acrobatics, music, and dance. It is perceived as more of a game or dance than a fight and will work on your strength, power, rhythm and flexibility!

Capoeira is known for its quick and complex moves, using mainly power, speed, and leverage for a wide variety of kicks, spins, and highly mobile techniques; at the heart of it is the the back-and-forth, foot-to-foot movement that serves as the starting point for leverage. Capoeira used in genuine self-defense situations incorporates many sweeps and low moves, whereas when played as a game there is more emphasis on high moves, demonstrations of acrobatics, full cartwheels (called au) for evasion, and flips or other exotic techniques by mestres (masters), and performing an entertaining match for the audience.

As an activity for children, Capoeira is not only fun, but also incorporates many beneficial skills including music, dance and martial arts.

Reni Lima Ferreira is our instructor and runs the Edmonton Capoeira Academy.  His athleticism, patience and skills are incredibly and we are so excited to have Reni as a part of our team of amazing instructors at the Little Sweatshop!
