I had been out of capoeira for several years due to injuries and such. I chose to return this year for the first time into an all skill levels class and was a bit apprehensive about not having the conditioning or flexibility to keep up. I had an excellent experience. I did not at all feel judged and got plenty of individual attention as well as encouragement from fellow students and the contramestre as well. I'm greatly looking forward to re-joining this community and sharpening my skills with this group. Can't wait for the next class!

I took my eight year old, and he had a great time!  Perfect balance of focus and fun, hard work and learning.  So many of the exercises will clearly help him with his coordination and self defense.  The use of percussion instruments also makes it more enjoyable.

Have been going to Axe Capoeira a few months now, with having zero experience in capoeira other than what I've seen in the media. My first class I didn't know what to expect. There is truly a sense of energy and camaraderie at the establishment. As with all things new, it may seem all very new and overwhelming your first class but Mestre Bambu is a patient instructor that is able to work with the level of the individual and introduce you to new concepts. After a few classes your body (and mind) will start to get a grasp of how to move and why you are doing what you are doing. I have also brought a few friends/family members to come try a class and everyone conforms to the same thing: that it's a GREAT workout, completely a unique experience than what most people are used to, and a blast! I 100% recommend for everyone to support this establishment as it is not only a great workout or physical activity, but Mestre Bambu has dedicated his life to spreading capoeira as an art form and tradition to our city and I think that is priceless.

Great atmosphere, great workout and most importantly, great teacher. Bambu really takes the time to work with each student to help them with the techniques. He also does a great job of helping students understand the concepts being taught. Highly recommended for anyone looking for something challenging and fun.

I had an amazing time learning Samba at Axe, Jennifer is a great teacher and very talented dancer. It was my first time learning samba, but it definitely won’t be the last. She was patient and also encouraging. I am planning on coming back next week.

I took the beginners class, and the instructor who was a substitute that day, was very patient with a newbie like my self who is totally unfamiliar with capoeira. It’s a work out tho! Prepared to be sore the next day(s). I will be back

Thanks Duffy! We'll be here when you get back. Don't let the soreness keep you away. The more you train the faster your body gets used to it!

I was super sore after my first lesson, and I was excited to come back for my next lesson a few days later.  My instructor, Bambu, was friendly and patient, especially considering I'm brand new to capoeira.
