Capoeira


Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art form with roots in Africa.  It is unique, in that it incorporates elements of martial arts, dance, music, rhythm and acrobatics into a dynamic game between two people.  As an exercise, it engages muscle groups in a functional way that promotes agility, flexibility, strength and balance in different planes of motion.

We are the San Francisco Peninsula Branch of Capoeira Brasil, under the guidance of Mestre Boneco.  This group is known throughout the world for it’s commitment to preserving the art of capoeira in it’s traditional form, while also adapting to it’s natural evolution.  Branches of Capoeira Brasil can be found throughout Brazil, the United States and 36 other countries throughout the world.
