Axe Capoeira UK

Capoeira KT1 2EE www.axecapoeirauk.com

The philosophy of Grupo Axé Capoeira is to respect all the mestres, preserve the roots and traditions of Capoeira, and train Capoeira in all its aspects: as a fight, art, and culture. We endeavor to teach and educate so that capoeira will grow in a positive healthy way. We attempt to pass on to the students physical and mental methods of training so that they learn to create situations and maintain a dialogue within the game. By playing both with friends and enemies, students learn to deal with any situation in or out of the roda. In North America, we not only teach movements, but the Brazilian language and customs as well, so that the students may become true capoeiristas.

On 16th of July of 2006 Marcus Vinicius Vallinari taught his first class in London wearing the Axé Capoeira t-shirt as Estagiário Marcus Cabeça, with the supervision of Mestre Barrão and started the Axé Capoeira UK group, part of Axé Capoeira group. For those who have known Instrutor Marcus Cabeça since he first started training Capoeira, know what Capoeira means to him today. It is through Capoeira that he found the strength to recover from his terrible accident, and it is in Capoeira that he finds the strength to get through the obstacles we all face in our day to day life.

It is with this attitude that Instrutor Marcus Cabeça teaches his students the Art of Capoeira, with discipline in a healthy and fun environment showing them that Capoeira is much more than an exercise, as one of the biggest Capoeira Masters, Master Pastinha, said ‘Capoeira is everything the mouth eats!’
