Capoeira, an Afro-Brazilian Martial Art, is a mixture of the rhythms of dance, the playfulness of a game, and the strength and intensity of a fighting system. Come train with us at our Lakeview location right off the Belmont Red Line. Be ready to get in shape, learn some music, and experience Brazilian culture. All levels are welcome. Experience is not necessary.
