Kids Develop Self-confidence and Creativity
JOIN THE MOVEMENT
In learning Capoeira, a student develops skills in self-defense, acrobatics, fitness, instrument playing, rhythm and singing, language skills, teamwork, and strategy development.
Capoeira instills the values of responsibility and self-confidence while awakening creativity through the development of self-expression. In class a student develops body awareness through the use of self-defense skills, acrobatics, and general fitness. Capoeira increases memory, balance, mood and behavior, and like any regular physical activity, is the first defense against childhood obesity. Children are mentally engaged through instrument playing, rhythm and singing, language skills, teamwork, and strategy development, all while understanding limits and respect for one another.
Contra Mestre Fenix and his student teachers are role-models who strive to teach young people valuable life lessons—confidence, leadership, goal-setting, team-work, expression, cultural and social cooperation, respect and tradition, and habits that can lead to a lifetime of good health and civic involvement.
Fenix Capoeira holds youth classes at their Wallingford and West Seattle locations, and offers classes year round through Seattle area enrichment programs and camps in both the public and private sectors.
