It is a great physical activity for developing youth. It encourages them to explore the joys of being active and interactive. Children who practice Capoeira on a regular basis benefit from improved physical and mental abilities as well.
Besides being fun and eye-catching, Capoeira is a very efficient tool in child’s development. Capoeira helps develop balance, coordination, general level of fitness and flexibility, sense of rhythm and awareness of your own body. The musical aspect of Capoeira helps kids feel more comfortable and more willing to exercise. Training Capoeira also builds self-esteem and helps the child to develop a sense of identity as an individual, as a member of a nurturing community and as a member of global society.
In addition to the benefits listed, Capoeira helps build personalities through self-expression in a fun and playful way. It can also help develop the potential of each individual in their ability to learn in school and have a positive influence on life in general.
Our project for the Capoeira Kids Classes consists of two course levels. The first level is open to younger kids where their parents can also participate and interact alongside. In doing so, children get a better sense of maintaining closeness, developing family unity, strengthening the degree of trust and bonding between each other, and improving the quality of life of the family as one.
The second level is targeted for kids between the ages of 8 and 12. This class is designed for children to interact with each other, grow and learn Capoeira in a safe, nurturing and positive environment. Children are given the opportunity to develop their own style, to learn and be challenged by the movements passed on to them. Kids are also encouraged to interact with each other in singing and instrument playing. This course invites children to discover, explore and learn the beauties and mysteries of the Brazilian culture.
But most of all, our Capoeira classes are based on having fun, as a mediator for learning. When a child is laughing, smiling and being positive, we believe they have the greatest potential to absorb and integrate new concepts.
