Kids’ Capoeira School at Capoeira Oregon
Kids are natural capoeiristas. Their world close to the ground is a world of cartwheels, handstands, and tumbling. It is a world with fewer inhibitions and a willingness try new things even with the fear of failing, or in some cases no thought of it.
Capoeira adds structure and focus to many of the things your kids will do naturally on their own. Capoeira combines music with gymnastics, dance and martial arts to provide children with strength building, coordination development, and focus. Our kids’ programs also emphasize good character development through the cultivation of respect, humility, and cooperation.
At Capoeira Oregon we have a two level curriculum for the kids, Level I and Level II. Level I kids typically are still developing spatial awareness and social skills and they learn the best in a fun and less structured class with kids in their age group. Level II kids are the eager learners with great focus skills, excellent in following instructions, and eager to show off their skills. We audition the kids to see where they fit but typically level I is ages 5, 6, 7 and 8 and Level II is 9, 10, and 11. At 12 they train with the adults with instructors permission.
