Grupo Capoeira Angola of Mid Cascadia Nonprofit for Sports and Social Achievement is a gateway for you to focused success in the things they pursue later in life even after they move on from Capoeira Training.
We hold true to the traditions of Capoeira as it is seen in its birthplace of Salvador Bahia Brazil. So, we follow a combination of the concepts of Grande Mestre No, and his student (the acting Mestre we Play for) Mestre Gulliver - Paulo Aires who have been training with Grande Mestre No since he was 6 or 7 years old.
We engage in physical and social dialog with players of other lineages and teams - Often representing several different arts traditions simultaneously represented at the same game.
All are competing for (a sense of capture the flag) with regard to the pace and nuance of the music - and for soloist and dominance of their team as an innovative choir able to rif off stadards, classics, and newly popular capoeira songs as a team.
We work in Schools, and other institutions with at risk youth as a matter of civic duty inherent in the art form as a purposeful meme.
