   Our group, Capoeira Mandinga Tucson, led by founder/teacher Anne Pollack (Mestra Luar do Sertão), focuses on challenging students physically, mentally, and musically in a supportive environment to inspire self-discipline, self-confidence, communication, tolerance, teamwork, dexterity, stability, endurance, and concentration -- important life skills that can be continually improved and built upon.  Most importantly, we strongly support the efforts of everyone in our capoeira “family”.  We encourage each student to continually strive to face and conquer new challenges and to explore Capoeira and life as a means for self-expression.


    Capoeira is a thrilling Afro-Brazilian martial art form that was started over 450 years ago in response to the oppression of Africans who were brought to Brazil as slaves.  Interwoven into Capoeira are elements of dance, song, and percussion, which were originally used to disguise training to fight for freedom by making it appear as a game of dance and music.


    Capoeira is now officially recognized as a Brazilian Cultural Heritage and is the second most popular sport in Brazil.  Its popularity is spreading rapidly in the US.  Capoeira enhances our Tucson community’s understanding and appreciation of Brazilian history and culture.  In addition, Capoeira is a remarkable means to attract and bring together people of different cultures, gender, ages, and socio-economics.  Our Capoeira Mandinga Tucson group emphasizes respect for the traditions of capoeira and honors everyone as an individual who has the potential to help create a better society.


    Today, Capoeira continues as an expressive Brazilian art form that is fun for kids, teens, and adults.  It combines martial arts, dance, gymnastics, and music including instruments, rhythms, and songs of both capoeira and Brazil.  Our local Capoeira Mandinga Tucson group is part of our international Capoeira Mandinga group that is directed by Mestre Marcelo Pereira (the real Tekken Eddie Gordo!). 


  Our group emphasizes excellence, both locally and internationally. Your support of the Southwest Regional office of the Capoeira Institute will help fund and support our efforts to bring internationally respected masters of Capoeira and Brazilian cultural arts into communities across the Southwest.
