We use capoeira to change lives.  We inspire, develop and guide individuals in the capoeira game.  What we achieve in the game play of Capoeira is transferred into real life by you.  Feeling healthier, stronger, flexible and agile from capoeira training stimulates and motivates you to pursue a better life.  Learning to dance also brings a more satisfying social life.
You will need to focus and dedicate time and effort to get the results you are looking for nonetheless the rewards are many.  Master Fantasma and U R Capoeira group have been producing these results with individuals from many varied backgrounds for over 25 years.

“I found capoeira as something where I could express myself totally as it combines my love of music, dance, acrobatics, combat and sense of play – and much more.” Designer, female, age 29

U R Capoeira is centered around traditional Brazilian capoeira teachings which include music, song, dance, acrobatics and rituals used by capoeira groups around the world.  Whatever level or place you are at our teachings are for you.  If you are already a capoeira practitioner we will help you develop insight and vision in the various ways to play.  If you are a complete beginner we will hold your hand and guide you until you are ready to stand and learn alone.

Go to About capoeira to find out more or please contact us if you have any questions.

“It is rare to get such insight into yourself, and sometimes it is difficult to accept certain aspects of what you find, but capoeira celebrates everybody’s strengths and weaknesses, which is a very liberating concept!” Doctor, female, 32

“Capoeira reminds me who I am, and reminds me of my uniqueness and what I can do with it.”

ELC student

“Entering into training or a roda, nothing else matters, everyone is equal and everyone shares the same experiences.”

East London Capoeira Student

Capoeira is treachery

 

Mestre Bimba

“Apart from a skill, it also lays down rules which benefits those taking part. It offers positive benefits through developing respect for others. It’s also great fun.”

Andrew Boff. Greater London Authority

“I like capoeira because it is a full body workout, I feel strong. When I play I feel excited and motivated. I would tell anyone considering capoeira to join…its good.”

Life is a struggle? Life is a battle?
 The player sees that capoeira is teaching him to dance within and during this fight.
