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.

Weekly update 14th August

A new CD from Oficina da Capoeira will be available in September. We'll be making sure we can get some in the UK. The cost will be £20 at most (depends on shipping etc.) Let me know if you would be interested in a CD and I'll let Mestrando Primo and Instrutor Lua know the numbers and we can see what the actual price will be.

A reminder that we have a big weekend coming up in September. On Saturday 3rd September we will have a capoeira workshop with a guest teacher, Professora Bia, which will help to raise money to support her family. Sadly her sister in law was raped and murdered in Brazil, and the money raised will help to support her brother, niece and nephew who are relocating after the tragedy. The workshop is from 11:00 to 13:00 at Community Hall Donegall Avenue, Roussillon Park, Chichester, PO19 6DF.

The next day we will have a stand at the Get Active Festival, from 12:00 to 16:00 in Oaklands Park. This will be a great chance to let everyone in Chichester know our group and to help us grow, and it will also be a chance to have some fun at all the other stands.

We'll finish with an historic video from Estagiaro Rad from Oficina da Capoeira, Bristol. It's from 2010, and the batizado in which he received his orange corda.

See you all in class!
