Capoeira is a lot of fun and can be just what you need to get all those kids active and entertained.
Capoeira has acrobatic elements and in conjunction with its musical component, make it very attractive to children. The practice of Capoeira is done in a group and it involves acrobats, gymnastics and co-ordinated concentration. It is a sport that develops stamina, endurance, physical co-ordination, equilibrium, flexibility and team spirit.
In Brazil and recently around the globe, students often start to practice the sport from the age of three or four years old and is not too long until they can reap the rewards of such stimulating activity.
