Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian martial art form that combines self-defense, dance and acrobatics. Developed by African slaves who needed to disguise their martial arts from slave masters and other authorities. Capoeira helps people of all ages develop self-esteem, coordination, rhythm, strength, flexibility, and collaborative skills. It incorporates physical movement and awareness, self-expression, discipline, community, musicality, and the Portuguese language. Jarrel “Chumbinho” Philips trains and teaches under the guidance of Mestre Urubu Malandro, founder of Capoeira Ijexa.

What You Should Know

  • Space is Limited
  • Students should wear loose clothing, uniforms (ABADA preferred), girls (tank tops, t-shirts), boys (tank tops, t-shirts, or no shirts at all)
  • Parents/guardians are not required to stay with your child during class. In fact, we ask that you please drop your child/children off and come back towards the end of class to pick up your kids. The time alone is easier for the coach and other instructors (children behave differently away from their parent/guardian) to create the space necessary for them to function independently, build and bond with their coach, and not have to deal with more than one authority figure in the environment. Thank you for understanding. However, if we feel that your child needs you, we will ask you to stay.
  • Please feel free to contact Jarrel Phillips for more information at jarrelp@gmail.com or (415) 350-2222.
