Welcome to the website for Oficina da Capoeira, Chichester.

Currently the group is on a brief hiatus whilst the instructor takes a break to settle in with his new born second daughter.

Classes will return, watch this space!

Weekly update 7th August

September will be kicking off with a capoeira filled weekend. On Saturday 3rd September we welcome Professora Bia as a guest teacher to give a capoeira workshop. The venue is awaiting confirmation, and it will be from 11:00 to 13:00. Afterwards, we will go out for lunch together.

The workshop will cost £10, and any profit will be going towards helping Professora Bia's family. Tragically, her sister in law was raped and murdered, and her brother and niece are  relocating from their neighborhood, which they cannot afford to do on their own. To find out more about this, and to help, please go here.

One of the things that drew me to capoeira was the great sense of community I felt, both in Oficina da Capoeira with Mestrando Primo, Nego Lua and students, but also when visiting other groups. Coming together as a community to help seemed the least we could do. Muito obrigado.

On Sunday 4th September, 12:00 to 16:00, we will be at the Get Active Festival in Oaklands Park. It's a chance to shout about capoeira to Chichester. If you can't make the full four hours, just an hour or two sitting at the stand would help! The event's free, and you can have a wander around too. After the event, we could go for a drink and maybe some food.

Our roda video this week has number of people playing, but starts off with Professora Bia in action!

See you in class!
