Welcome to to Capoeira Society Webpage!


What is Capoeira?

Capoeira is an afro-brazilian martial art. It combines fight, dance, music and acrobatics in a unique and exciting way. It was developed by slaves in Brazil in the 16th century.



Nucleo de Capoeiragem

Our society is affiliated with the Nucleo de Capoeiragem group, which started in Brazil. Here in Bristol we are taught by our Brazilian Mestre, Claudio Campos.


Our group is very friendly and open so feel free to come along to a session to try Capoeira for yourself! Don't worry if you have never tried it before, all our sessions are suitable for all abilities.


We look forward to seeing you there. Axé!
