Capoeira Mandinga Detroit was established in 1998 under the supervision of Mestre Marcelo Caverinha. Our school believes strongly in community and unlimited possibility through creativity and body expression. We celebrate capoeira and wish to share it with everyone. We work with everyone who wants to participate in this ancient martial art with us. We sing. We dance. We learn. We play. We work hard and we have fun. Capoeira is for everyone and we encourage everyone to come play capoeira with us!
We are a community from all social demographics who are preserving the history and culture of capoeira.
Our school is proud of the diversity of our members. We believe that everyone should see themselves in capoeira and we strive to create that vision for anyone who visits us. We believe in growth through humility, open mindedness, acceptance and kindness. We meet our goals through hard work, accountability, self-discipline and respect. Capoeira is more than just a martial art. It is a way of life for many. People come to learn capoeira and learn about themselves.
