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.

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.

Weekly round up 29th May

Thank you again to all those involved with Oficina da Capoeria over our first year - looking forward to things getting bigger and better in our second year! It's not to let to get us a birthday present!

There won't be a class tomorrow (Monday 30th) as it's the Bank Holiday. The Monday that follows will be the start of the new times and venue for Monday.

Here is an example of why it will help to learn Brazilian Portuguese:



There have been times I have heard Mestres talk about capoeira for some time, in Portuguese. A student at the event will paraphrase what was said, but you know that some of the finer details and nuance will have been lost. So do consider signing up to Duolingo - it's completely free, and can help you access information and insight about capoeira direct from its native land. I'm learning it too, here's my profile.

We'll finish with some great skills from Mestrandos Primo and Gato Preto:
