Rio de Janeiro Off The Beaten Path: 265 reviews and 287 photos
There are 2 main types of Capoeria: Angola and Regional. I have just started practicing Angola (a more controlled and slow moving version while Regional is faster and more aggressive). It is an amazing sport and fun to do. The movements aren't like anything I have ever done before. I highly recommend either watching a practice or Roda or joining in on a practice.
The group I meet with is very relaxed and everyone is entitled to a demo (free) class. It's located at Victory Academia in Laranjeiras. The address is Rua Conde de Baependi 71. Come by and check it out or locate one near you.
FYI: We have traditional Rodas every Saturday at 3pm. Everyone is welcome to watch
