Can I observe a class?

Quiet observers are always welcome.


It is best to contact us to let us know you are coming so we can let you know of the best class to watch.

I'm not in the best shape. Will I still be able to play Capoeira?

Yes, we can scale the class for any level. You will need to be prepared for a workout and to be sore for at least the first few weeks.

What can I expect in my first beginner class?

Be prepared to work out and sweat! Martial Arts is a very physical activity. The normal class structure starts with warm-up, leads into training according to level, and ends with application of movements. Please make extra time to stretch before and after your classes.

New Students FAQs

What should I wear and bring?

 Please wear comfortable clothing (no shorts). We train in bare feet but you can also wear light shoes if you prefer. You may want to bring sports tape to prevent blisters on your feet. We also suggest bringing a water bottle.

When should I start?

You can start anytime. First you will need to get in touch by either filling out the form on this page or call (206) 422-6852, and we will schedule your semi-private intro session. We offer the intro session on Fridays at 6:30pm before the adult class.


For kids just starting out, it is best to just join in on a class. We can offer an intro for older kids, but find that the younger ones do better in a group setting.
