Capoeira’s “completeness” is what makes it so challenging but, it is also what lured me into studying the art in the beginning and what keeps me coming back for more each class. Along with it’s sense of community, self-expression, energy, discipline, fun, and culture.
Axé Capoeira is a place where you will not only learn martial arts, acrobatics and dance, but also where you’ll become a more confident individual and excel in many other areas of your life you may not have considered. I came to Axé Capoeira to learn how to jump and flip. What I didn’t anticipate was how much I would mature mentally during the three years I’ve been training. I don’t think I could get this much value out of any other physical activity, which is why I keep coming back!
I’ve been a dancer all my life and find that great music motivates and gives me energy even when I think I’m done. I was curious about martial arts and when I saw a Capoeria demo at English Bay I knew I’d love it.
Personally I’ve found that Axé Capoeira pushes me to improve and increase my abilities both physically and mentally. Capoeira is a fun and great way to improve the health of your body and your mind. Whether it’s capoeira, music, or dance everyday is something challenging and satisfying.
My son Hans began taking classes with Axé Capeoria at the age of 6 & 1/2. HE IS NOW 10 & 1/2 YEARS OLD. He has continued to have the most positive experience we could have ever imagined. The structure, the instruction, the programming is above all that we could have asked for?
I have been training Capoeira for a long time and the martial art still continues to challenge me in a physical way. I personally find working out a gym to be unmotivating. But with Capoeira, I can get a total body workout and learn a sense of rhythm, self-defense, and self confidence. Since I’m tied to a desk at the office everyday, Capoeira has become my outlet that allows me to express myself through the art, the music, the cool looking kicks and the acrobatics.
At first, Capoeira interested me as it promised to be a fun way to exercise and challenge my body. Now, training at Axé Capoeira has captivated me with its variety – explosive kicks, graceful acrobatics, inspirational music, and forum for physical self-expression. The strength that comes from hard work and achieving the seemingly impossible is just one of the many rewards of Capoeira.
My kids LOVE training at Axé Capoeira. They are taught discipline, creativity and respect! I got back into pre-pregnancy shape in just 6 months! Love it! No martial art has kept my interest for more than 6 months like Capoeira has. Training is alway fun, varied and dynamic!
Capoeira has given me a sense of identity which is crucial in life.
One word… AMAZING!
The Axé Capoeira Performance Group came to our Halloween party in the fall of 2010 and put on an OUTSTANDING show for BCIT faculty and staff. Their energy shined through the entire performance, and our attendees were very impressed with the athleticism and acrobatic abilities of the group. A very entertaining and interactive showcase of Brazilian dance and martial arts techniques, I highly recommend having Axé Capoeira at your next event.
We had the Axé Capoeira group perform at our All Staff event and they were amazing! The room was filled with energy and anticipation as they dazzled us all with their astonishing moves. Their interactive production had members of our group go up and join in on the fun, it was a great time. It was high energy and well received by those in attendance. We will no doubt have them perform again at a future event! Thanks Axé Capoeira!
