Asako (Capoeira) is marked by evasion techniques, weapons, kicks, feints, sweeps, headbutts, grappling, chokes, and breaks. A key objective in Asako is to attack without being attacked. Asako (Capoeira) builds flexibility, physical and mental stamina, tones muscles, and improves balance, focus, and coordination. Asako develops mind, body, and spirit. Asako classes consist of stretching, movement training, light sparring, and music.
