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

Capoeira is play-based. Play is vital for children as it builds healthy bodies, supports brain development and learning, and develops social, emotional and communication skills. Learning a new skill also improves mental health, well-being and creativity.

During class, children explore Capoeira through a variety of fun and engaging activities including moving, kicking, dodging, acrobatics and singing.

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

“The Capoeira classes are full of joy and kids love it. My son has really enjoyed his experience. His strength, coordination and balance have improved significantly since he has started Capoeira. Thank you Lee and Mariana for providing a lovely environment for kids to exercise and learn martial arts.

(Shirin, mum of Ryan - age 5)

HOW YOUR CHILD WILL BENEFIT FROM CAPOEIRA

  • Children benefit from increased confidence and self-esteem.
  • Children develop a sense of identity as an individual, as a member of a nurturing community and as a member of a global society.
  • Capoeira helps to build children's personalities through self-expression in a fun and playful way.
  • Exposure to the various aspects of Brazilian culture builds children’s awareness of our multicultural society and their respect for diverse people and cultures from all over the world.  

CLASS TYPES

CAPOEIRA SEEDS
KIDS 3 TO 5 YEARS

Our Capoeira Seeds classes are designed with play completely in mind. Capoeira is intrinsically playful, however, play based learning is key part of developing our young ones’ bodies and minds. The focus of the class is to build a love for movement, music, language and social interaction through games and stories. The stories told integrate movement skills, language skills, music skills and cultural appreciation in a fun, interactive and inclusive manner.

CAPOEIRA SPROUTS
KIDS 6 TO 8 YEARS

Our Capoeira Sprouts classes are designed with the multiple intelligences in mind.  Capoeira is a holistic practice and due to this, it allows student to develop their multiple intelligences. The students will go beyond developing their physicality but will develop their cultural, linguistic and socio-emotional selves. Students will develop individual and sequence based skills based on a spiral curriculum. They will also develop their music and language through our instrumentation and singing practices. This is an age where their bodies may rapidly change with the demands of their ages, so we are mindful of this and foster strength, flexibility, balance and agility through our drills sequences and games.

CAPOEIRA SEEDLINGS
KIDS 9 TO 12 YEARS

Our Capoeira Seedlings classes are designed with mastery and leadership in mind. As Capoeira is intrinsically play based, the drills and games played in this class address more complex physio cognitive abilities than the Seeds or Sprouts class. One of the major focuses is on developing the major pillars of physical, social and emotional fitness. Students will experience drills and games that develop their strength, flexibility, balance, rhythm and music ability. Though musicality the students will learn/develop Brazilian Portuguese and give them a greater understanding and use of their senses through Capoeira.
