“Capoeira is much more than a fight, capoeira is rhythm, it is music, it is malandragem, it is poetry, it is a game, it is religion. (…) Capoeira is everything the mouth eats. ”

Mestre Pastinha 

Capoeira is a beautiful struggle of ebb and flow between forces. A complex system of movement, rhythm, codified ritual, interaction, and culture that is deeply rooted in the African paradigm of being. Capoeira is a combat art. Capoeira is a framework for understanding the principles of life from an African-centered perspective.Ona-Omi utilizes Capoeira’s movements, concepts, culture and training methods to further our goal of self-discovery and mastery.
