Capoeira is a martial art disguised as an improvisational dance, and was developed by African slaves on Brazilian soil roughly 500 years ago. As Arizona's premier capoeira institution for over 20 years, Capoeira Brasil Arizona prides itself in teaching the style and discipline found in capoeira's historic roots. Along with physical training and conditioning, we teach traditional capoeira music, instruments, and the rich history of capoeira and Brazilian culture. Widely regarded as one of the best martial arts to get you in shape, capoeira will test the limits of your body and mind no matter your experience or age. If you desire more in life and want to experience the world in a new and exciting way, we challenge you to challenge yourself!
