Parabens to CBLA’S Young Capoeiristas!

Yesterday we celebrated the hard work of our capoeira kids at our spring Batizado.

We couldn’t be prouder of them and all they have learned. From kicks and takedowns, to acrobatics and music, to teamwork and confidence…they have learned so much!

And a huge thanks to the capoeira parents and family members who have given these kids the opportunity to learn this complex and beautiful martial art.

More photos, videos and stories to come from this weekend of workshops and graduations.

Capoeira … Brasil!

Capoeira … Brasil!

Capoeira … Brasil!

Thanks to our youngest Capoerista and their parents who encourage them to learn and grow with us.


So happy to have this piece of our history up on the wall in our new home.

This is the logo from the floor of our old academy. It saw many years of training, rodas, batizados and celebrations.

It soaked up sweat, tears, sounds of laughter, sounds of music, years of teaching and amazing memories.

If you were ever in our old academy, a bit of you is in this logo and we carry you on to our new home. Here’s to many more years of CBLA!



So excited to have Mestre Boneco ( ) back at our LA headquarters.

Come join us this Saturday, February 12, at noon for a Welcome Back Roda.

All levels, all ages and all groups are welcome. Just bring your good energy. See you there!

Shout out to our student Gargalhada. Even though she injured her foot at the end of last year, she continues to train multiple times a week. She puts on her abadas (and her boot) and comes to the academy to work on her music.

Even though she’s been training capoeira less than a year, her Berimbau and singing skills are improving quickly.

Can’t train movements? Come work on music! Can’t make it to the academy? We have online classes. There’s lots of options for everyone.

Capoeira is such a multifaceted martial art and there’s always something to work on: kicks, acrobatics, instruments, singing, history, the Portuguese language. Keep training…keep learning…keep growing!
