The workout was quite intense and requires some endurance but because of the positive vibes I got from the host and all other participants/students it gave me energy to keep going. Luciano is a good teacher with great knowledge and passion for this sport. Afterwards went for a bite all together which was nice and made new friends. Happy I went!

세상 즐거운 카포에이라 클래스였어요! 운동 많이 될거라고 경고하긴 했는데 진짜 장난없었네요. 옆돌기하고 브릿지하고 이전에 아크로바틱 배우지 않았으면 조금 따라가기 힘들었을 것 같아요. 어느정도 운동을 좋아하시고 즐기시는 분이 이 트립에 참여하시는 것을 권장드려요. 그냥 운동하는 클래스가 아니라 함께 카포에이라에 사용되는 음악을 듣기도, 연주해보기도 하고, 노래를 불러보기도 하고, 다양한 방식으로 카포에이라를 체험할 수 있어서 좋았습니다. 새로운 친구들도 만나서 같이 카포에이라 하면서 그 순간만큼은 진짜 제가 그들의 일부인것처럼 느껴져서 좋았어요 :)

The capoeira experience with Luciano was amazing, I had so much fun and learn different moves. Is not an easy class but I was able to make a good progress with Luciano help, he really loves what he does and you can feel it during the class. This experience was definitely one of the highlights in my trip to Porto.

This class with Luciano was really awesome. My students and I had very very good experience. I think this is the best place to learn Capoeira with having fun in all the world. The class totally had three stages. One, we could learn about origin and nature of Capoeira. And then we learned about the action and lastly they have taught about how to play music which is most important thing regarding Capoeira. Above all things, all staff including Luciano were very kind and did they best to teach us. That's touched all of us and made really impressive memory.
