Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art that mixes elements of fighting, acrobatics, and dancing in a complex dialogue.

Capoeira Pittsburgh has been active in Pittsburgh since 2006 under the supervision of Graduada Taxa and recently Pingüim.  The group trains all elements of capoeira, including kicks & escapes, floreios or acrobatics, and dances like maculelê and coco de roda. For further information on classes or to book a performance, please contact us at capoeirapittsburgh@gmail.com.

  1. Axé to Pittsburgh! We’re raising funds for a documentary on the Angolan roots of Capoeira, having travelled twice with Mestre Cobra Mansa to Angola. Check out our video and campaign, running until 17th of January. Thanks! http://www.indiegogo.com/angolanroots

    I’ve been watching a few of your clips and think capoeira is a amazing way to express yourself and self defense importantly! I’d be interested in learning capoeira regional ASAP. I’ve tried capoeira Angola and while it was fun, I think regional fits my personality and ranges better for me. Please email me ASAP
