Welcome

Mestre Peixinho had a vision about a great international capoeira meeting, that represented his work outside of Brazil, which we through many years have created and developed further. It is with great pleasure that we now can invite you all to participate in the 20th Scandinavian Capoeira Meeting, during May 12-14, 2017.

Classes

Capoeira masters will be giving classes, which for adults are at three levels, while the children are split up according to age. All are welcome.

Come and feel the power and energy created when people join together across the boundaries of nationality, age, and gender – to battle, sing and dance in an explosive, positive and musical atmosphere.

The newest Senzala students are baptized at the Batizado, where they play with a mestre or high level capoerista for the first time in public, with the whole extended capoeira community, along with family and friends as witnesses.

More experienced students will be given new belts according to their progress.
