Capoeira for kids (CAPO4KIDS©) is a cultural and comprehensive enrichment program, designed to promote a sense of wellbeing in children of all ages. Capo4Kids defines wellbeing as a state of wellness (being in good physical and mental/emotional health) infused with a sense of social and environmental responsibility.
CAPO4KIDS© gives rise to children’s sense of self-worth (a belief of their worthiness and about how they deserve to be treated) and self-esteem (a belief of how capable, competent and valued they are) through connection learning. Connecting to children’s emotional needs is as important as connecting to their physical needs. And one of children’s most basic emotional needs is to be treated with respect. Social interactions rooted in respect for oneself and others are an immanent part of Capoeira Angola since Capoeira cannot be played alone.
