What we're about
Gerais means “general” in Portuguese. This name was chosen to signify that Capoeira is for everyone–all ages, all physical abilities, all ethnic and social backgrounds. Through Capoeira’s unique history of discrimination and freedom, we seek to promote diversity, tolerance and self-expression. Capoeira combines martial arts, dance, music, and rich cultural traditions, resulting in a physically gratifying and emotionally satisfying experience. We believe that personal growth and fulfillment is the foundation for a better society. And that, in essence, is the philosophy behind our name.
