Who we are

LINE 2.png

Our Brighton Capoeira Angola group was established by Boneco de Sousa in 2002. Together with his three sisters, Boneco has been teaching Capoeira in UK for many years.

Boneco and his sisters are known within the capoeira community as the 'Amazonas' family. They are well known in the UK, Europe and Brazil as a dedicated practitioner and welcoming Capoeira Angola school. We regularly collaborate with other UK-based groups and bring guest teachers over from Brazil and Europe.

Currently, we offer regular Capoeira Angola classes to all backgrounds and ages in Brighton. We believe that Capoeira brings positive change to people's lives, empower individuals through Afro-Brazilian culture, social awareness, empowerment and mutual respect. 

Since 2015 we have worked in partnership with Amazonas Arts, a not-for-profit community association bringing the benefits of Capoeira and related activities to schools and community groups.

Our Teacher

Contra-Mestre Boneco

Boneco has been teaching Capoeira since the 1990s. Also, he is a percussionist, qualified fitness instructor and an Associate Lecturer in Stage and Film Combat in acting with BADC at University of Chichester.

Boneco's vison in Capoeira angola is to study its origins, its ancestrality and reciprocate teaching methods of capeira angola being passing down, such as music and the etiquette movements by an inclusive and also a reflective environment in class. Creating space for everyone to learn confidently Capoeira angola, by the fact that in Brazil enslaved African and indigenous cultures fused. Capoeira angola can disseminate benefits of well - being, sense of community with a positive approach to the practice.
