While our main focus in Capoeira Angola for combative application, we also incorporate various movements and techniques of Capoeira Regional. We train for jogo de dentro (inside game) and jogo de fora (outside game) as well as jogo duro (aggressive games). Our focus is teaching capoeira as a practical martial art and a game of technique and strategy.
We typically end each class with a roda where we focus on techniques and principles learned during the day's class as well as other movements.
