In this challenging time we are determined to continue our mission of building community and promoting health in mind, body and spirit.  We believe it’s important to remember our health and positive attitude play a major role in affecting the health and wellness of others.  As COVID has illuminated, we are simply one large community here on earth.  Let’s honor each other by taking simple steps to protect one-another, find creative ways to continue our connection, reach out to our neighbors here and beyond our borders, take time to cherish the gifts of life...and...LET'S TRAIN CAPOEIRA!

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.

Learn the unique movements, technique, history and music of Capoeira Regional as you gain physical and aerobic conditioning through exercises targeting strength, stamina, reflexes, speed, flexibility and balance. Your skill will build from the basic ginga step and advance with emphasis on technique and style. Students work individually, as well as with partners and in groups. You’ll also learn the history of Capoeira Regional and its founder, Mestre Bimba. In addition to the rhythms and songs of Capoeira, you will learn to recognize and play the instruments integral to Capoeira: Pandeiro, A-go-go, Atabaque (ah-tah-bah-ki) and Berimbau. Classes gradually combine all elements of song, music, and movement as students learn to play in a roda (circle) with others.

The class is taught in Portuguese as well as in English.

This will be a hybrid of In-studio, Zoom and Outdoor classes. Our intention is for all classes to be outdoors  at Gas Works Park and the weather and air quality will be our guide for whether any classes will be held online. Currently we require all students to be masked and students will be spaced with 6ft distance between them.  COVID precautions will be in place and updated on an ongoing basis based of guidelines from WA Department of Health.
