Why play capoeira?

Capoeira is the only martial art that combines dance, gymnastics and music. It is ideal for parents looking for a non-contact martial art that instills confidence and discipline and focuses on creativity. Beside kids classes at his academy, Mestre Lampreia has taught hundreds of children of all ages in NYC public and private schools for over 10 years--in both afterschool programs and as part of schools' fitness curriculum.
