What is Capoeira?

Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art that combines elements of self-defence, kicks, open hand punches, acrobatics and music. It is a great exercise for all ages and increases fitness and strength throughout the body and mind, is great for brain stimulation and de-stressing, and will keep you healthy 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.
