Capoeira Brasil was founded on January 14, 1989 in Rio de Janeiro, it is an international cultural organization, recognized as one of the largest Capoeira groups in the world with schools in over 40 countries. Capoeira Brasil is dedicated to sharing and preserving the rich culture and tradition of Capoeira. The organization strives to maintain the integrity of the art, as well as support its continued evolution and growth. In Capoeira as in most martial arts, you are judged by your lineage, your learning and connection to the roots of your art. Honoring tradition and history while celebrating Capoeira’s development is fundamental and at the heart of the Capoeira Brasil’s mission. Capoeira Brasil has its roots in the world-renowned cultural organization, Senzala, where the three founders trained and learned for many years under the guidance of innovator, Mestre Camisa. As graduated students and later teachers at Senzala, Boneco, Paulinho Sabia and Paulão developed their own distinctive Capoeira style, drawing from the teachings of legendary mestres like Bimba, Pastinha, Eziquiel, Leopoldina, João Pequeno, João Grande, and Itapoan. Capoeira Brasil practices a style of Capoeira known as Capoeira Contemporânea (Contemporary Capoeira). This diverse and dynamic style is derived from the movements and methodology developed by the legendary Mestre Bimba as well as the traditional teachings of Capoeira Angola. It is a reflection of the art’s continuing evolution and a style widely practiced throughout the world.
