Capoeira Kids

New Students

First Class is free. Register here.


We offer kids classes for ages 4-12.

Our curriculum emphasizes Achievement, Community, and Leadership (ACL) through the development of Focus, Discipline and Respect (FDR). The goal is to provide the fundamental building blocks for healthy young minds and bodies through capoeira exercises. The Seattle Capoeira Center is dedicated to providing a space for the youth in our community to learn valuable lessons that will help them to thrive in Capoeira and in life.

We offer the most kids classes in Seattle with the only weekly kids capoeira circle every Sunday.
