Strength and Mobility Class! Advanced training

Starting from today, every Tuesday and Thursday from 8:00pm to 8:30pm there will be a special strength and mobility class for advanced capoeiristas. From 8:30pm to 9:30pm advanced capoeira class will follow.

Instrutor Diego “Guerreiro” (who’s also a certified PT) has been Ido Portal student for over three years and these special strength and mobility classes will focus on his Method.

This specialized training will allow students to become more resilient and mobile, preventing many capoeira-related injuries and preparing their bodies to learn more advanced (and demanding) capoeira movements.
