MARTIAL ARTS

We believe summer camp is a time for kids to have fun while learning new things! Our camp has the variety of fun kids want, with the flexibility you want. You can pick the weeks that work for you and get discounts for purchasing multiple weeks!  

Students will learn and train in the art of Capoeira, an Afro-Brazilian Martial Art that incorporates music, dance, and acrobatics. Students will learn the basic movements of Capoeira. Students that register for two weeks of camp will be eligible to receive their first belt.

Quality Staff

We believe in having the highest quality staff because we want the best care for our students. We don't pay teenagers minimum wage to babysit your kids.  All of our staff have multiple years of experience working with children and have been trained by us in professional and child development. The director of the program, Mestrando Mico (Joshua Broadhead) has worked extensively in the public school system and after- school programs. Before moving to Gainesville, Mestrando Mico ran a highly successful multi-site after school program for 500 students in the heart of San Francisco.

Bully Prevention

Your child will learn Bully Prevention techniques from our Take Charge program every day. Take Charge is based on the Bully Proof curriculum developed by the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu family. It takes the approach of “fighting fire with water”. All techniques are presented as fun and engaging games to students. While your child plays, they learn critical skills like control and assertiveness. The curriculum teaches the physical techniques that will give your child the confidence to avoid bullies in the first place in a non-violent way. 

Acrobatics and Dance

The main movement in Capoeira is called ginga or swing, which is a dance-like motion. Having to "play" capoeira in rhythm with the music develops children's coordination skills than can be applied to to other activities.


Your child will learn really cool acrobatic moves in a safe and controlled environment.

Music

The music in Capoeira is what makes it truly unique. Your child will learn songs, rhythms, and how to play fun Brazilian percussion instruments. Studies show that children who learn music activate the attention system of the brain which has overall gains in other academic areas. It can also improve phonological awareness which studies have shown improves reading skills.
