CAPOEIRA VALENTE – BRAZILIAN MARTIAL ART

Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art that combines elements of self defence, kicks, open hand punches, acrobatics, movements, music and meditation. Capoeira is great exercise for all ages and increases fitness and strength throughout the body and mind it is great for brain stimulation and de-stressing. Capoeira will challenge your body and mind and it will improve your temperament, reflexes, and your coordination but will do so in a fun and enjoyable way.

Capoeira Valente has brought this Brazilian Martial art to Johannesburg in its true form. This wonderful Martial Art is for all ages, all sizes and for all people teaching you about martial arts and self defence. People often mistake capoeira as dance however, it has elements of full contact strikes and take downs which can be seen in MMA(mixed martial arts) fighting today. Our mental philosophy is growth through confidence, humility and courage and to control ego and insecurities, while our physical philosophy is concentrated on technique, efficiency and objective of movements. Capoeira Valente on the cusp of Bryanston and Fourways in Sandton, Johannesburg has created a healthy learning environment where everyone is encouraged to release the stresses of our everyday lives and to find peace and happiness during and after classes. Capoeira has great fitness, flexibility, weight loss/fat burning and body strengthening advantages which you will experience in every class.

Our academy is very central, easy access from Sandton, Fourways, Randburg, Bryanston, and Sunninghill
