The benefits of practicing Capoeira.

Improve your core!
Capoeira is a hybrid of martial arts and dance.

Control and agility rely on core strength which you will constantly improve in Capoeira. This will improve your game and also help improve the health of your spine and joints which rely on a strong core for support. CapoeIra is true functional training in which all muscle groups are integrated with intense cardio, which has been shown to be the most effective path to fitness by world class athletes and weekend warriors alike. In a capoeira class workout, you start with basic moves such as a simple side-to-side step with alternating front kicks and punches as a gentle warm-up and then continue to increase intensity and complexity until every muscle in your body is engaged. It is health, physical, psychological, emotional, spiritual, is complete, playing, singing, using your intelligence, alertness, happiness, confidence, togetherness, friendship. It touches so many aspects of your life that it becomes infinite. It is a transformational lifestyle.
