There are five good reasons why every capoeirista should learn Portuguese...
...but there isn’t much Portuguese-learning material on the internet that’s well-organized and easy to understand – and virtually nothing geared specifically to capoeiristas. That’s why I launched this site!
Portuguese for Capoeiristas offers:
- Capoeira lyrics and translations related to the theme of each lesson
- Useful vocabulary, definitions and pronunciation
- Easy-to-understand explanations of Portuguese grammar
- Exercises to reinforce your Portuguese language skills
- Monthly giveaways of capoeira gear!

I’ve been playing capoeira for ten years. I began in a small, unaffiliated contemporary capoeira club at my college, and after four years switched to capoeira angola. Today, I’m a member of FICA (Fundacao Internacional de Capoeira Angola) in Salvador, Bahia with Mestre Valmir.
I’m a CELTA-certified English teacher and I currently teach English to adults in two schools in Salvador; I also do translation work on the side. I’ve translated several books and hundreds of articles about capoeira from Portuguese to English – you can find them on Capoeira Connection.
I love to correspond with fellow capoeiristas, so if you have a question, comment, or suggestion on the blog – or just want to chat – feel free to contact me!
