ABOUT FENIX CAPOEIRA
Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art that combines self-defense, acrobatics, dance, music, community, and culture. Over the past
500 years it has evolved from a secret fighting practice into an art emphasizing self-expression and community celebration.
Fenix Capoeira strives to build community, share culture, and promote individual vitality through the teaching and continued development of Capoeira.
Fenix Capoeira was founded by Contra Mestre Fenix, who started capoeira in 1996 with Mestre Caraja at the Bairro Nova Esperanca in Goiania, Brazil. In 1998 he began to train with Mestre Xereu from the group Capoeira Candeias. He moved to the US in 2005 and opened
his own school in 2010.
Contra Mestre Fenix and our student instructors are community leaders and role models who promote the values of respect, integrity, strength and equality. We have classes for beginners or experienced athletes, and classes for all ages- including kids, teens and adults.
Fenix Capoeira is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Proceeds from classes and donations support the upkeep of our studio space and the continuation of our mission.
