Why should my child train Capoeira?
Capoeira has many benefits for kids and adults:
Physical fitness, agility and coordination: Capoeira is a dynamic and physically engaging activity that promotes overall fitness. Kids develop strength, flexibility, coordination, balance, and cardiovascular endurance through the diverse movements.
Teamwork and social skills: Capoeira is often practiced in a group setting, encouraging teamwork and cooperation. Kids learn to interact with their peers, take turns during exercises, and collaborate in the performance of Capoeira sequences. This promotes the development of social skills and a sense of community.
Creativity and expression: Capoeira is often referred to as a "game" and encourages creative expression through movement. Kids have the opportunity to express themselves physically, explore their creativity, and develop a sense of individuality within the structured environment of Capoeira.
Musical education: Capoeira is accompanied by traditional music, played on instruments such as the berimbau, atabaque and pandeiro. Kids have the opportunity to learn about rhythm, timing, and musical expression, expanding their understanding and appreciation of different art forms.
Confidence building: Learning and mastering new movements in Capoeira can boost a child's self-confidence. As they progress in their training, receive positive feedback, and overcome challenges, kids gain a sense of achievement that contributes to greater self-esteem. Through Capoeira, kids will also learn to navigate conflicts in a controlled and respectful manner. They develop an understanding of boundaries, communication, and conflict resolution within the context of the practice.
