Testimonials

The teaching is amazing everyone there has great character and respect for each other and the diversity you'll experience is endless. This is for anybody even considering practicing this form. But be careful with the teacher, she can be a bit scary at times, but it's all worth it and again the class is for and welcomes anybody and everybody. Dont hesitate.

Wonderful experience! I enjoy the instruction, culture, and excitement in the roda. I definitely would recommend to anyone who is a history buff, martial artist, or somebody who is looking to stay in shape.

About us

At CMCE Philly we work within the greater Philadelphia Capoeira community to teach youth and adults the value of building each other up through the Brazilian Martial Art of Capoeira. We believe in developing the minds & bodies of students through expression in movement, music, language, and finding their place in the larger community.

About Capoeira

Born from the oppression of slavery, capoeira is a synergistic blend of dance, martial arts, and acrobatics. Like the fluid movement of its players, capoeira can be difficult to discern. Often seen as part martial art and part musical performance, capoeira is both entertainment and knowledge. It can include everything from acrobatics and head butts to nimble kicks, often deliberately missing your partner by mere inches. Though having varying styles, capoeira is traditionally done by two players within a "roda," a ring of people who surround the participants, clapping and singing songs.

Capoeira's history charts its existence back to the slave ships, which carried millions of Africans to the shores of Brazil under the direction of the Portuguese crown. In the fight for freedom, the slaves developed a means of self-defense disguised as dance. As slavery disappeared, the martial art evolved into the current blend of dance, music, and improvisation that is seen in capoeira today.
