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.

Follow these links to find out a bit more about our teacher; Oficina da Capoiera, our capoeira school; and photos from some of our group's activities.

Weekly update 6th November

Apologies for no update last week - being a parent can get in the way of these things! Classes are still on as normal though.

Some useful resources to share this week, which I also mentioned in class last week.

Here's the post on the berimbau (and other capoeira instruments) and this is the app that can help with your songs and percussion practice - on Android and on iPhone.

On 25th November, Mestrando Primo will be giving a workshop in Bristol. Unfortunately, I'll not be able to make it, but by all means head down.

For those (like me!) unable to get there, don't forget Mestrando Primo will be giving a workshop with us here in Chichester on 28th January.

Before that, we celebrate 20 years of Oficina da Capoeira on 10th December in Cheltenham.

For those wanting to get abada (capoeira trousers), I'll need the money by December the first, and Primo will them to us when he visits in January.

We also talked in class last week of angola and regional capoeira, look at the difference between this angola roda:


and this regional roda:
