Capoeira @ the Beverly Pagoda !

We are pleased to welcome Professor Morrao, a capoeira instructor with over 25 years experience in capoeira and 20 years teaching.

Did you know? Capoeira is Brazil’s national sport and is practiced all over the world! On November 26, 2014, capoeira was granted special protected status as an "intangible cultural heritage" by UNESCO.

Capoeira is an African-Brazilian martial art that combines self-defense, dance, music, acrobatics, Brazilian culture, and lots of great energy. Participants, or capoeiristas, trade a multitude of kicks and acrobatic moves to the beat of music. Students who train regularly benefit from increased coordination, strength, flexibility, discipline, compassion, and tolerance. Capoeira teaches lessons that allow students to grow as people, both during and outside of training.

Classes at the Beverly Pagoda Martial Arts Academy are:

Saturdays, 11:00a – 12:00p
