Why We Exist.
We feel strongly that the unique art of Capoeira is a healthy, fun, and functional alternative to ordinary fitness and wellness practices
At Benção Brasil, we feel strongly that the unique art of Capoeira is a healthy, fun, and functional alternative to ordinary fitness and wellness practices. Creative expression, fitness and healthy living go hand in hand and thrive in a supportive and diverse environment like ours.
According to the Department of Health & Human Services, only one in three children are physically active every day and less than 5% of adults participate in 30 minutes of physical activity each day. We are committed to fighting these bleak statistics! Our programming provides a safe place for young people, families and adults of all ages to train an artform that is accessible, adaptable and inspirational. Capoeira’s unique history, beautiful movements, captivating music and supportive community is a great place for families to get fit; it is truly an art with something for everyone. Much more than a workout, a dance, a martial art, Capoeira is life philosophy, a community that cultivates life-long relationships and above all, promotes tolerance, love, harmony and creativity. We believe that once you are a capoeirista, you will always be a capoeirista, and whatever path your life takes, Capoeira Brasil Los Angeles and the Benção Brasil Cultural Center will always be your home.
