Capoeira School Senzala Turku

Capoeira is a kind of afro-brazilian game, combining dance, fighting movements and a bit of acrobatics, and it’s played two-by-two to a groovy music. We are a bunch of guys in Turku who practice the capoeira style Senzala, which was born in Rio de Janeiro in the 60’s. Our group, called Grupo Capossu, is under supervision of Mestre Samara (, who runs his own capoeira school in Amsterdam and the training’s are held by the more experienced trainers Marjo, Ronnie and Ida-Maria. Grupo Capossu provides classes for both adults and kids, beginners and more advanced, music classes, presentations, introduction classes in schools etc. Welcome to join anytime of the year!
