“Capoeira é para homem, menino e mulher, só não aprende quem não quer.”
“Capoeira is for men, women and children; the only ones who don’t learn it are those who don’t wish to.”
– Mestre Pastinha
Welcome to my beginner’s guide to capoeira.
This guide is not the “end-all, be-all” of capoeira information. There is a ton of information about capoeira if you know where to look for it. I’m just trying to start you off in the right direction.

Intro to Capoeira Music Series
I am by no means an expert on all things capoeira, so I encourage everyone to participate in this process by leaving comments or sending me emails. If you think that you can cover something I haven’t talked about, or expand upon something I already have, please let me know. There is always room for improvement and expansion.
Capoeira is a community, and because of that, I hope that we can all benefit from this guide.
