CAPOEIRA FAQ

CAPOEIRA FAQ

  • WHAT IF I HAVE NEVER DONE CAPOEIRA BEFORE?

You have to start somewhere? We start by teaching you the basic movements and you take it from there.

 

  • I HAVE NEVER TAKEN ANY TYPE OF MARTIAL ART OR DANCE CLASS.  CAN I STILL TRY CAPOEIRA?

Capoeira does not require that you have prior experience on any type of physical activity!

 

  • WHAT IF I AM NOT FLEXIBLE OR NOT IN BEST PHYSICAL CONDITION?

Don’t let this discourage you! Capoeira is for everyone!!! Young or old, short or tall, girl or boy! Of course, the more you train, the faster you will see results!

 

  • HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO LEARN CAPOEIRA?

Think of it as learning a new language.  The more of the language you learn, the more clearly you can express yourself to others. If your goal is to have a conversation with someone that consists of, “Hi, how are you?” and “I am fine, thank you”, you should be able to do that within a month or two. If you plan to discuss world politics or philosophy, be prepared to spend more time learning the language.

 

  • WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

For your first class, comfortable workout wear is fine. Should you decide to sign-up, we have uniforms available for purchase.

 

  • SHOULD I BRING ANYTHING?

Open mind and positive attitude!  Bring a water bottle.
