ABOUT CAPOEIRA

Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art that integrates elements of dance, acrobatics, play, music and culture.

Capoeira was born from the fight for freedom. It has now evolved to involve non-violent and pacific dialogues to achieve freedom within the modern lifestyle. It is manifested in the human affinity for intelligent resolutions over brute force.

Unlike other martial arts, it integrates what the Western rationality has disintegrated. The modern person goes to different places to appease their physicality, their creativity or human connection. Capoeira combines all of this and more. It offers an inclusive and supportive space to express oneself through movement, music, play, art and culture. 

It is a holistic practice that works all threads of the body, awarding physical fitness and health

It is mindful well-being in all its aspects, giving opportunities for the body, the mind and soul to find its balanced place

It is intrinsically engaging to all and drives individuals to seek their best selves, independent of skills or interests

It is an inclusive community that develops new and meaningful friendships and promotes strong social connections

It is the movement of freedom; freedom of movement, freedom of expression, and freedom of mind, beyond the barriers of modern life

It is musicality that captivates the spirit and moves the soul. It is a cultural manifestation that infuses Brazilian vibrancy to the world

Both Lee and Mariana are really passionate about the art-form and culture and it translates through to the whole group creating a friendly and fun atmosphere with plenty of positive energy. As for the Capoeira itself, it's a great workout and will improve flexibility, strength and general body conditioning. Get involved, everyone is welcome.

Alexa Wilkins

My experience being part of Capoeira CDO has been amazing! Lee is a wonderful instructor who, through his skilful and quality teaching practice, shares his passion for capoeira and Brazilian culture with students and encourages us to learn and grow as capoeira players. Lee & Mariana are super friendly and welcoming and have created a fantastic capoeira group at CDO Perth with heaps of positive energy. You are assured to walk out of their classes with a big smile on your face and a stronger, more flexible body!

Richard Keenan

Lee and Mariana's Capoeira CDO Perth is unique in its wide offering and benefits to each student: improved fitness, movement, coordination, flexibility, musical ability and knowledge of Brazilian Portuguese. Equally important though is the quality of teaching: Lee's passion and enthusiasm is inspiring and infectious. And Mariana presents all of this in a welcoming, fun, positive and social environment.
