About Capoeira

There has been Capoeira Angola in Oxford since 1999. In 2010 we became affiliated with Capoeira Angoleiros do Mar group and Capoeira Angoleiros do Mar Oxford was born.

Now Mestre Marcelo Angola (the founder of Angoleiros do Mar group) comes to Oxford every year to share his energy, knowledge and love of capoeira with us.

When Mestre is back in Bahia, or visiting the other Angoleiros do Mar groups around the world, we teach the regular classes and continue his work.

In 2015 Grandao founded a Community Interest Company – Soul Movement C.I.C. – to increase the number of capoeira classes we offer (including working with Capoeira in Schools) as well as offering Yoga classes in Oxford.

As well as our regular classes, we hold events and rodas – to find out more join our facebook group or contact Grandao 07521298488 / chrisgraham10@gmail.com or Lobinho 07411776771 / maurizio_1984@msn.com.
