Do I have to be in top shape to do capoeira?
No! Learning capoeira will help you get in the best shape of your life. Students can burn up to 500 calories an hour in a class. You can expect to increase your flexibility, strength, cardio, balance, and motor coordination through the practice of capoeira. If you come to class regularly, you will get results. Just ask our students.
Do you have classes for beginners?
Yes! Starting in May, we offering an adult Beginner class on Tuesdays 6:30-7:30PM. The rest of our classes are "multi-level" which means we accommodate all levels of students, including beginners. We do warm-ups and drills that everyone can do together and at a certain point, the students will split up according to their level so they get the right amount of challenge. New students are worked with individually as needed to introduce the basics and are integrated in the rest of the class.
What if I can't do all the moves?
No worries! All the moves we practice can be modified to your fitness ability level. Capoeira is physically demanding and we know it takes time to build the proper physical conditioning and mindset to do certain moves. Also, we encourage all students to "respect the limits of your body" to practice safely and avoid injury. If you have a condition that limits you, please let the instructor know so we can best help you on your capoeira path.
Do I need a uniform?
Yes, the uniform is mandatory for all students who train with us regularly. The basic uniform for adults consists of white or blue training pants and a white or blue shirt with the Bodysport Capoeira logo. Our capoeira kids wear white pants and the white Bodysport t-shirt. New students have several weeks to purchase a uniform.
Note: Shorts are NOT allowed in class. For your first class, please wear a t-shirt and athletic or yoga pants. Training barefoot is preferred.
