Mundo Capoeira

Foundation

On February 7th 2006 'Grupo Internacional Mundo Capoeira' was founded with its headquarters in Salvador da Bahia, Brazil. Mundo Capoeira is an international non-profit organization and its goal is to support and develop the educative, social and cultural aspects of capoeira throughout the world. Mundo Capoeira focuses on spreading the philosophy of the capoeiragem, without letting our precious capoeira lose any of its value.

Today we, the Mundo Capoeira family, are active all over Western Europe and far beyond. You can find us in:
Belgium, Brazil, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxemburg, Russia, Turkey, Ukraine and the United States.

Everyone is always welcome to enter our group to enjoy capoeira with our existing members.

Philosophy

Our goal is to transmit the philosophy and knowledge of the old mestres to our students, to preserve the true spirit of capoeira and the art in its totality. The members of Mundo Capoeira who become one with our philosophy, become an element of the fundaments of capoeira themselves.

Mundo Capoeira wants to spread this thought to all its students around the globe. Our philosophy is based on respect, discipline and freedom. Three fundamental points every capoeirista has to work on in order to be able to give value to the Brazilian culture. Capoeira is an art of the past, the present and the future. It is a representation of life, freedom, resistance and suffering. That way we remember ourselves to the difficult times in which capoeira was born.
