Good for agility and fast reflexes

Capoeira is all about reacting quickly to evade, trick or ‘attack’ your opponent. Regular practice builds fast reflexes and superior agility.

Enhances flexibility

Unlike many sports and activities, Capoeira takes the body in all directions. It bends, twists, curls and stretches, developing mobility throughout the joints and muscles.

Boosts heart

Weight-bearing movement in all directions is demanding on the cardiovascular system, increasing stamina.

Improves balance

Coordinates upper and lower body movements, as well as moves that require balancing on one leg or hand.

Strengthens upper body

Many of the moves, including handstands and cartwheels, require taking the body’s full weight through the hands, so strengthening upper arms, chest, shoulders and back.
