More information

The course

Brazilian martial art, combat sport, mix of dance and wrestling to the rhythm of instruments and songs.

Why not try capoeira as a family with Jambo Capoeira for everyone?

All families with a child age 4 to 11 are welcome to come and have a go – no special skills needed, no particular fitness level expected.

Attendance is free of charge.

Exceptionally – because this course is not fully booked, reservations will be possible on the day.

The important stuff

It is recommended to do the session in indoor sports shoes. You’ll need a bottle of water. Please put your name on it.

Our only rule

Be prepared to have a go! All our activities are designed for a child with an adult (or 1 child + 2 adults; or 1 adult + 3 children; or 3 adults + 1 child; but never just the little people…)

The qualities developed are spatial and temporal structure, cooperation, interaction, understanding of rules, self-confidence, etc.
