Theres something for everyone in Contra Mestre Marquinho Coreba's Capoeira classes. His style of teaching engages students of all ages, varying levels of physical fitness and experience, and a diversity of backgrounds. The Capoeira classes are high-energy, full-body workouts, but most importantly, theyre both challenging and fun.
Students begin by learning the Capoeira fundamental movements such as kicks, escapes and sweeps. Next, a progression of sequences is built upon these basic exercises. Eventually, the sequences develop into a fluid dialogue of movement with a partner. In essence, Capoeira is a game of simulated attack and escape. It can be theatrical, humorous, and mischievous, and sometimes it is aggressive and athletic. C.M. Coreba brings together these various elements in his teaching.
Capoeira combines martial arts, dance, music, and rich cultural traditions, resulting in a physically gratifying and emotionally satisfying experience. We believe that personal growth and fulfillment are the foundations for a better society.
