Strength and balance
Training capoeira will greatly improve your strength and balance. The combination of acrobatics and martial arts moves helps to build  both upper and lower body strength, as well as developing your flexibility. Capoeira is a complete workout – and you will probably discover muscles in places you never knew you had them!

Awareness
As a capoeirista, you will develop strong physical awareness and perception skills.  Playing in a capoeira ‘roda’ requires focus and concentration. The rhythm of the ‘berimbau’ and the words of the songs determine the style and speed of the ‘game’. You must remain acutely aware of your opponent, your own body and the roda.

Fitness
Capoeira is a great way to keep fit. Combining music, dance and martial arts makes capoeira a lot more interesting than working out in the gym. You will notice a real improvement in your core strength and balance after just a couple of training sessions.
