Capoeira for Kids

Capoeira is great for kids. It combines martial arts, gymnastics, music and dance and provides a fun challenging workout. Capoeira is also a great tool to develop coordination, since its movements involve the entire body. Thanks to its music component, children also learn to sing in Portuguese and play the traditional Capoeira instruments. Introducing fun kids games where the elements of capoeira are incorporated, children learn many important skills including discipline, self confidence and respect.

Kids classes every Saturday from 3:15pm-4:30pm on Yan’An Xi lu n.358, 3rd floor (near Nanjing Xi Lu)
