  • Capoeira is a Cultural Art

    Capoeira will be one of the most challenging yet enjoyable art forms you’ll ever experience. A unique combination of kicks, acrobatics, dance and live music, capoeira is more than just a martial art.

    At Maculele Capoeira, we've seen how capoeira helps improve confidence, develops discipline, enhances focus, gives students the incentive to make and reach goals, to overcome challenges, encourages community service, and a lot more. We have seen how expressing yourself with movement in different forms has the power to positively affect all areas of our students’ personal and professional lives.

    Maculele Capoeira is committed to show you a life-changing experience through your training at the Academy. We focus on character and leadership development and soon after you start your intro training class our students realize they will get a lot more out of their time spent here.
