Kids Classes

Feeling confident in their ability to control their bodies whilst beaming with joy from learning new and vibrant skills. That’s how Capoeira CDO Perth students walk out the door after their capoeira classes week after week.

If you are looking for a holistic and exciting activity for your children that will encourage them to   explore the joys of being active, and, interactive, then these classes are for you!

Through a variety of interactive, fun, and engaging activities, children explore many facets of the Capoeira experience, including moving, kicking, dodging, acrobatics, singing & playing percussive instruments.

Our Capoeira classes are age specific to cater for the students’ cognitive and physical development and are designed to enhance social skills, boost confidence, nurture resilience and inspire a passion for movement and music all while learning the foundations and rich culture of Capoeira.  

They are constructed 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. The musical aspect makes children more comfortable, more willing to exercise and it also brings the benefits of social, emotional and cognitive development.

As your children continue their journey with Capoeira, watch them as they become happier and more positive and achieve improved physical, mental & emotional abilities.

Capoeira is an excellent activity for boys and girls. It is a great combination of physical and creative arts. My daughter can’t wait to get to her weekly capoeira lessons at CDO Perth. The sport appeals to her acrobatic sense of adventure and love of music and dance.” Diane Blaine; mum of Zinnia Blaine

These unique Capoeira classes involve Capoeira CDO Perth’s own exclusive Capoeira teaching method: the Boabá Method. Each month children will learn the fundamental movement sequences compiled by our own Mestre Kuata. The students are also taught the multitudes of individual movements that are catered to the specific skill level and physical ability of the child.

As with other martial arts, Capoeira has its own grading system through cordões (cords). New students will receive the cordão cinza claro (light gray cord) as a symbol that they have made a start on their Capoeira journey. This cord is coloured so to show that the student is yet absent of colour and is about to come into greatness.

The first cord that is officially given is dependent upon the students’ age. The younger kids (Capoeira Sprouts) are given the light green with the grey tip and the older kids (Capoeira Seedlings) are given the light green cords to show the emergence of colour in their cord as they progress further in Capoeira. The students can receive these at two events in the year. The first being a grading event held in the first semester and an event that runs together with our Brazilian Festival held in the second semester.

Adubo - Flexibility, Mobility & Strength

IMPROVE YOUR QUALITY OF MOVEMENT IN YOUR EVERYDAY LIFE FROM THE GROUND UP

Think of your body and the way it moves as a Tree. You have the roots that are the foundations. They stabilize your tree even in harsh weather. You have the trunk and branches that give the tree rigidity and strength but at the same time can bend and not break with the wind. You also then have the leaves and flowers that make your tree beautiful and allows you to make seeds to further spread and make other trees.

Sometimes, we focus on having as many branches and flowers and leaves on our tree that we can forget about how it grows. Other times, we would like it to grow faster, or grow stronger, or grow bigger. Sometimes we would like our tree to bend even to the heaviest winds.

This is where I would like to introduce the Adubo – Flexibilty, Mobility & Strength class.

The term Adubo literally translates to fertilizer, so this fits into our concept organically. The purpose of the Adubo class is to improve your quality of movement in your everyday life from the ground up.

Adubo classes are designed to complement your chosen way to move and exercise through improving flexibility, mobility and strength, along with coordination, agility and body awareness.

If you feel stuck in your current exercise routine, if you are bored doing the same thing day in day out at the gym or during classes, if you want to learn something different, something you can practice on your own, anywhere and anytime and have fun while learning, then the Adubo class is for you.

During classes, we will play around with the different aspects of movement which can include handstands, floor work, specific body weight mobility drills & partner games. Exercising like this requires no equipment, just the enthusiasm to learn, a sense of creativity and the desire try something different!

Classes are always fun, challenging for both the mind and body and will always teach you something about yourself and the way that you move. Most people say it is a “different way to train”.

The Adubo class can complement your other exercise pursuits – from CrossFit to bouldering and rock climbing to Capoeira, other martial arts practice and everything in between.

The Adubo class is for you to re-connect with your body; its roots, its branches, its flowers and leaves. To further ground yourself and re-acquaint yourself with the floor. To further strengthen your core to better stabilize your natural day to day movement patterns. To make your body more supple, to bend and not break when life needs you to move with greater freedom. You can seek maintenance, you can seek repair, you can seek development and much more. Ask yourself, how do you want to grow?
