What is capoeira?

Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art incorporating dance, music, self-defence and acrobatic techniques, using spectacular kicks and movement in a unique combination. With a fun and welcoming atmosphere and community, all levels are welcome for a good workout and to learn more about this rich cultural tradition!

Senzala London’s master is Julio Cesar Alves de Oliveira – “Mestre Sanhaço”, a red belt student of the great Mestre Peixinho. He’s part of Grupo Senzala from Rio de Janeiro and has been practicing capoeira for over twenty years.
