Our Academy

Welcome to Brazil!

The first thing you will notice when you first walk in to our academy is that IT IS HOT! That's because the warmth is a part of Capoeira and the Brazilian culture (not to mention its amazing for your muscles when training). Music is essential in our training, so it's common to walk in to a group of 10+ people playing loud drums as if it where "carnaval".

Axé Capoeira Academy has been running in Toronto since May 2006 with classes being taught in Toronto and surrounding cities since 2000.

The Toronto school, led by Contra-Mestre "Paraiba", is one of the largest and most successful branches of Axé Capoeira, one of the world's largest and leading Capoeira schools. Under the guidance of Mestre Barrão, the founder and president of Grupo Axé Capoeira organization, our group has grown to over 9,000 members worldwide in 20+ countries.

April 2009 marked an important chapter of Axé Capoeira Toronto with the opening of our newly renovated 4000sq ft. state of the art academy and the recognition by Top Choice Awards as the Top Capoeira School in the GTA. This is one of of North America's largest Capoeira Academies and by far the biggest and most well equiped in Toronto in the GTA.
