Welcome to the website for Oficina da Capoeira, Chichester.

Our classes are open to everyone, and are 19:30 - 21:00 Mondays and Thursdays.

The first lesson is free, and after that classes are £4 for children (under 18) and £6 for adults. No need to book, just turn up.

Monday classes are at The Lodge, Graylingwell Park, Chichester, PO19 6YS.
Thursday classes are at Grit Gym, Station Approac, Chichester, West Sussex, PO19 8GA

New to capoeira? No worries! Complete beginners are welcome, whatever your fitness level or experience. You'll just need to wear to sports clothes to start - jogging bottoms, yoga pants, shorts etc are all fine; and a t shirt that's not to baggy.

A big thank you for the berimbaus

A few months have passed since we successfully crowd funded some berimbaus for the group.

Unfortunately, just as I picked them up from Instrutor Lua in Cheltenham, my wrist started playing up, so I've not been able to string them. Finally though, my wrist was good enough (just) to get the berimbaus out and teach Au how to string hers.

A big thank you to everyone who shared our crowdfunding page, donated money and fundraised for them! Here they are:

As my wrist improves, I'm looking forward to more percussion time in class. The next project after our festival is an atabaque... : )
