Filhos de Bimba Escola de Capoeira
Capoeira is a fantastic form of physical activity that will improve your fitness, coordination, balance, strength and agility, whatever your level of fitness. At the same time, you can enjoy the social, artistic, musical and cultural elements of Capoeira and even pick up some Portuguese!
Filhos de Bimba Escola de Capoeira was founded in June 10th 1986 by Manoel Nascimento Machado (Mestre Nenel), the son of Mestre Bimba, who was the creator of Capoeira Regional. The organisation passes on the cultural legacy of Mestre Bimba, seeing capoeira as a form of citizenship. Due to the power that capoeira has to captivate people, through it we are able to work on respect, limits, discipline and development of self-esteem, without differentiating between social class, race, culture, nationality, age, sex, or physical capacity.
