Capoeira is the Brazilian Martial Art combining rhythm, movement, music, history and culture. Our group, Moringa de Barro holds classes for youth age 4+ and adults in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle. We practice Capoeira Regional (fast-paced) although the Angola style of Capoeira (slower-paced) is also incorporated into classes. Our Mestre, Mestre Pitta (Daniel Nery dos Santos) hails directly from Salvador, Brazil where Capoeira was born. Classes are dynamic and engaging for all levels and age groups. Students enhance their technique, strength and endurance by training individually, in pairs and in groups. Mestre Pitta believes Capoeira teaches us how to live more peacefully by learning to respect ourselves, each other and cultures throughout the world. Classes offered virtually and in person at Balance Studio.
