Grupo Maculelê Tallahassee offers Capoeira, the Brazilian martial art that combines acrobatics, dance, music, and combat. We encourage you to get fit, make friends and to join a growing global network of capoeiristas. It is a challenging but rewarding experience that will enrich your life in many ways. Capoeira truly is an art form. When training capoeira you will be encouraged to learn the history, the music including songs and instruments, in addition to the intricacies of the physical game.
Estagiario Chegada Aranha started training capoeira in California in 1992. He initially started training with Mestre Amunka (Capoeira Yokayo – UCA) and Mestre Rony (Volta Ao Mundo). He has traveled all over the United States and been to Brazil to train capoeira. In 2000, Aranha brought capoeira to Tallahassee, eventually joining Grupo Maculelê Capoeira headed by Mestre Fran.
Through teaching capoeira, he hopes to instill discipline, self confidence and determination in all of his students.
Grupo Maculelê Tallahassee is located at Alliance Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu of Tallahassee.
