Benefits of Capoeira for Children
Capoeira is more than a sport; it encourages cooperation, self expression and fun. The sport of Capoeira is discipline, training, exercise, stretching and relaxation.
The communication between players in Capoeira mirrors communication in life, building a child’s experience and confidence within Capoeira and elsewhere. It gives physical and psychological support, developing all the potential contained in its participants, making them more prepared for life.
Movements that are quick, slow, controlled, loose, confined, acrobatic, light and elegant seem more like a dance than a fight, but it is also a sport and a game. It is a sport and a game where the most important thing isn’t to win, but to cooperate and have a dialogue with the other player!

· Increased agility
