Capoeira is a unique Brazilian art form combining martial arts with elements of dance, music, and gymnastics.  For many, it is not only a fun way to keep fit and healthy but also a way to learn more about Brazilian culture.  Capoeira also encourages a positive body image and develops confidence, self- esteem and team skills.

Meet our group and make new friends at our  UTS Capoeira Club Facebook page.
