Upper Hall, Pleasance


Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art rich in culture, which combines kicks and acrobatic movements to music and song to form a playful fight/game. Developed by slaves in Brazil, it is now present on every continent on the globe!


Learning Capoeira will bring you into full contact with an assortment of martial arts techniques, elements of dance, and most importantly music— making Capoeira a truly unique martial art! Everything we do you'll find here and Capoeira is for everyone—whether you want to keep fit, improve your flexibility, for self-defence, or simply to enjoy the Brazilian way of life! We also do a lot of joint events with Senzala Scotland (Edinburgh-city Capoeira Club).


Bring comfy clothes and it's up to you whether you train barefoot or with trainers!


This event is organised by the Capoeira Society.
