Casa de Quilombo - Mühlenstraße 62-65 13187 Berlin
I felt very well cared for as a beginner! It was the perfect mix of dynamic attitudes and relaxation towards the end. I was there with Urban Sports, everything was no problem! The rooms are also cozy and there are materials on site. The other students are all super nice too!
Foguinho and Benedikta are really kind and managed well this school paying attention to each of us. My son started at 3yo Capoeira lessons and they were really helpful and patient so he feel weeks after week more confident. They give energy for each one succeed and they are really nice with super young ones, this pedagogic mind is an important skill I was expecting in a school.
The rooms are inviting. You get on well with other parents. It is a community place!
All rooms are well maintained and clean. The open tea and coffee kitchen and the cozy seating area for visitors are great. You feel comfortable.
A welcome culture is lived in the Casa de Quilombo without excluding or evaluating. The conveyance of values, such as the promotion of a sense of community among the children, is also very positive.
What is capoeira?
Capoeira is a Brazilian sport that combines fight, dance and music. Attacks, defenses, transitional movements and also music are learned in class.
Capoeira is more than a sport: Values, culture and history are conveyed here. With us, Capoeira has no character of competition. We focus more on community values.
Your trainer: Professor Foguinho
Professor Foguinho has been teaching Capoeira for over 10 years, including more than 4 years in Berlin.
The group Cordão de Ouro was founded by Mestre Suassuna in 1967 and has been in over 150 countries around the world for over 50 years. Mestre Suassuna learned Capoeira when there was no rigid style separation and still teaches it to his students: We play Capoeira according to the rhythm that Berimbau specifies.
