THANKSGIVING BREAK CAMP
THANKSGIVING BREAK CAMP
At CBP Martial Arts Academy we shift your child’s paradigm and how they view failure from a negative thing to looking it as an opportunity to get challenged and get better.
Here are three simple tips that we use to coach at CBP that you can use at home:
1. Pre-frame and relate! Tell your kids a story of when you tried something new and you weren’t good at first or that you failed. Let them know how it felt. Then tell them how you didn’t give up and eventually succeeded. Let them know about that feeling of not giving up and seeing that all those times you didn’t get it right lead to you reaching your goal and being better stronger for it.
2. Creating a rule! Use phrases as a rule to help remind them of how we as a family approach things that are hard and failure in general. One we use is “Failure is Learning and growing stronger!” Or another “Failure is just a Challenge to get Better!” Always remind them before, during and after having your child work on something new and challenging for them at first.
3. Use a celebrity or someone else they care about that has failed many times but went on to great things and used that failure to shape and mold them to be better. It can be a family member, a pro athlete, a businessman, an actor, etc… Combined with your story this lets your child know that everyone has the same feelings about failing at something and how you look at failure an either make you stronger or weaker.
Make sure to let your kids know that things are supposed to be hard at time and when things are hard we look at it as a challenge to be better.
We would Love to hear about how you coach your kids about failure and never giving up! Just comment below 🙂 Have a fantastic day!Read More
Let’s face it, kids receive homework assignments starting in kindergarten these days and after a long day at school (and your long day at work), the last thing anyone wants is a homework battle. Many parents dread their kids’ school homework as much, if not more than their kids do. It’s not easy to squeeze homework into schedules packed tight with after-school activities, family and work responsibilities, dinner and still get the kids to bed on time. Establishing homework routines as soon as your child begins school will help him or her develop the skills necessary to keep up with these important routines throughout high school and college. Here are some effective tips for a hassle-free and productive homework routine.
1. Develop a routine.
Find an after school routine that works for you and stick with it! The key to having hassle-free after school time is having a regular routine, for example:
1. Putting shoes, backpacks, and lunch supplies away.
2. Placing homework and papers at their spot on the table where you do homework.
3. Sit down for snack and start on homework.
4. Once homework is completed, prepare backpack for the next morning.
5. Have fun – outside play, after school activities, board games, etc.
It’s very important to make it a routine to tackle homework before the afternoon slips into late evening and leaves you with tired, cranky kids. If you wait to do it later, it’s easy for it to get lost in the shuffle of after-school activities, outside play, etc. and then ends up interfering with bedtime. Having it done and out of the way frees up the evening for family time, avoids meltdowns, and helps keep everyone on schedule. Once you fine-tune your routine, stick to it! Keep things the same and consistent so your children understand what’s expected!
2. Provide a healthy snack or meal.
Growing bodies and brains need fuel! It’s difficult for kids to do their best when they are hungry or filled with sugary, processed snacks. Make sure your child has a satisfying, healthy afternoon snack. You can involve your child and create a list of his/her favorite healthy snacks to keep on hand such as apple slices, cheese and crackers, grapes, or carrots and ranch dip.
3. Reduce distractions.
Televisions, iPads, texting, talking adults… all these are great at the right time, just not during homework. Electronics can interrupt and prolong the homework process. Kids benefit from learning the difference between when it’s time to work and when it’s time to play.
4. Set clear goals and expectations.
Before beginning homework, review what needs to be accomplished with your child and prioritize tasks; make sure he is aware of exactly what is expected. Also, be sure that he understands the consequences of homework assignments not being completed and be sure he understands the reward / incentive of completing homework the right way. When homework gets completed, lots of great things get to happen —time to play with friends, play a board game, watching a movie, extracurricular activities like Martial Arts classes and soccer games and, not to mention, the life long benefits, because the habits they develop as young students will contribute to their success throughout their school careers.
5. Review Time.
Because homework is a student’s chance to review what was learned in class, it is important kids understand their homework. Give your child a chance to do their homework on their own and after review it together. That gives you a chance to talk about what your child is learning and make sure he “gets” it before he gets behind. If there is anything your child misses, review and talk about it.
With a little practice and consistency, these strategies should help you on the right track for a successful, stress-free school year!Read More

Capoeira (pronounced cap-o-way-da) is a high energy Brazilian martial art that combines self-defense techniques, acrobatics, music, dance, and culture!
If you are wondering if capoeira is right for you, there is no better way to find out than to give it a try! Don’t be discouraged by the fact that you’re not a gymnast or acrobat. We know capoeira can be quite intimidating at first glance but as a beginner you are not expected to be doing cartwheels and handstands from the start. However, your fitness will build up from day one and after a few months of training you will be surprised by what you can do. Capoeira is one of the few activities where men, women, and children can participate on an equal playing ground. In capoeira, there is no discrimination of size, age, or ability. If you’d like to know what’s really in it for you beyond the hype, read on to discover what you can expect in terms of health, fitness, and over all lifestyle benefits. There are numerous benefits as to why capoeira is an excellent extra curricular activity and these are our top 11!
Capoeira, quite simply, teaches you to believe in yourself. Capoeira is a total body and body expression and is perfect for instilling a sense of pride and confidence in anyone who practices. As one grows more confident in the martial art, he or she also grows more confident in the ability to express one’s unique voice.
When you go through an intense capoeira class, your body releases endorphins. This is basically a feel-good hormone that leaves you feeling great, improves your mood, and gives you a feeling of achievement and euphoria. So basically our capoeira classes are a win-win: your body produces more endorphins and you burn more calories. Once you have become a regular in capoeira class you, will begin to notice that at the end of the classes you feel energized and on top of the world!
Capoeira will increase your speed, agility, flexibility, and balance. You learn to conrol your body and realize your body has a whole new range of motion just after a bit of consistent capoeira training. Some capoeira practitioners are right on par with serious yoga practitioners in terms of flexibility. Even those who moderately improve their flexibility lower their risk for injury and increase everyday mobility.
In a time when many martial arts are reduced to aerobic workouts and cookie cutter dojos; Capoeira maintains all of its roots and traditions. The history of capoeira gives it meaning and soul. The way capoeira originated and developed is quite interesting and engaging; it’s important for students to learn a bit about this history of capoeira as it gives what we learn in class much more meaning and depth.
You may not become fluent (though that’s always a possibility) but there is no doubt that you will come to understand and perhaps speak a bit of Brazilian Portuguese.
This benefit could be the most valuable to some families. Capoeira is an art that is multigenerational! Anyone who wishes to learn the art is able to experience it. This means that families can participate together in capoeira. Not every family will take advantage of this possibility, but the ones that do will be greatly enriched. Families are strengthened when they play and learn together. When children hit adolescence, family unity and communication might be tried and it is through hobbies and activities that individuals within that family will connect. Capoeira can be a great family strengthener.
In closing, capoeira is about YOU. It’s not about what the person next to you is doing or about how high the person in front of you is kicking; but it IS about your goals and your development. We are confident that if you give our capoeira program a try, you will accomplish your goals; whether it be weight loss, muscle toning, self-defense, or become a capoeira master; you can do it here!

Today, our families have so many choices when it comes to extracurricular activities that it can become overwhelming. From team sports to music and swimming to art lessons, our marketplace is full of options for a family looking to enrich their child’s education and life experience. Parents and children alike may have a tough time choosing extracurricular activities, but they don’t need to.
Families only really have a few core things to consider when choosing an extracurricular activity. What will their child gain from participation? How much time is required? What is the cost? It is rare for an activity to include a variety of diverse benefits while favorably satisfying these core components. Capoeira is one of the few activities that achieve this.
Capoeira (pronounced cap-o-way-da) is a high energy Brazilian martial art that combines self-defense techniques, acrobatics, music, dance, and culture! There are numerous reasons why Capoeira is an excellent extra curricular activity. These are our top 11.
Our kids are not stationary in a set spot punching or kicking for the duration of the class. During classes, students exercise and participate in high-energy activities while constantly moving. Kids love this because the training is SUPER FUN, and parents love it because their child becomes more fit and coordinated all while becoming a more confident, respectful, and focused person.
Unfortunately, too much time with video games, Internet, and TV along with an overload of easily accessible sugary food and beverages have lead to a country where 1/3 of children and adolescents are overweight or obese. Capoeira helps combat this childhood obesity epidemic in an enormous way. Your child will be busy moving back and forth, ducking, dodging, spinning, and jumping all while stimulating muscles they never knew they had!
Capoeira teaches control, never violence. Capoeira by nature, and our program, specifically instills unshakeable confidence and self-control which enables kids to verbally standup for themselves. Capoeira teaches kids self-defense as a tool for personal growth and development. Kids learn to treat others, as they want to be treated. They learn to respect all living things – from their parents to pets. Often, kids with violent tendencies before they joined our class change and become non-violent and respectful.
Capoeira incorporates many dynamic acrobatic movements, which make classes much more fun and challenging. Acrobatics are taught at an age and level appropriate manner. Children start out by learning the basic fundamentals of acrobatics (such as cartwheels and back bridges) and then progress to learn more complex movements such as back flips, handsprings, hand-spins, aerials, and much more!
Music is a core element in Capoeira. It actually helped keep the tradition of Capoeira alive through history while it was being developed. Capoeira music is always playing during the extent of class, but it doesn’t stop there! The kids actually learn to play all the instruments that they hear in the songs. Children start out by learning the basics of rhythm by clapping their hands with the beat. Then they move to learning percussion instruments such as the Atabaque (an African drum) and the Pandeiro (a tambourine-like instrument). The children will learn about and how to play a unique instrument called Berimbau, the most important instrument to Capoeira. In addition, learning and singing the songs (in Portuguese) is a part of Capoeira that brings us to the next benefit of Capoeira…
Capoeira was developed in Brazil and the language spoken in Brazil is Portuguese. Capoeira classes here in the United States are instructed in English, BUT children are still exposed to Portuguese in a very big way! The songs the children hear in class are all in Portuguese, and the kids actually learn the words to the songs and eventually what the words mean. Besides singing, the children learn to count in Portuguese, and all the movement names the children learn are also Portuguese words. Needless to say, if your child does Capoeira he/she will pickup the fundamentals of a new language.
Although it might not seem like the most “fun” part of a Capoeira curriculum, the history of Capoeira gives it meaning and soul. Children will learn a little about oppression, injustice, and the fight for freedom. They will also learn about multiculturalism, diversity, and respect for others. The way Capoeira originated and developed is actually incredibly interesting and engaging. It’s important for students to learn the history of Capoeira as it gives what they learn in class much more meaning and depth.
You will love watching your children in class and you will love telling your child’s capoeira instructor how you’ve had to rearrange your living room to create adequate space for your child to practice their awesome new moves. It’s great and all to see your child really engaged in something so positive, but let me tell you something right now, capoeira is contagious! You might say “no way, I can’t do what my daughter is doing” but then somehow someway you find yourself in the Adult Beginner class next to Sally and Johnny’s parents getting an insanely awesome workout while having a ton of fun! From the side, you catch a glimpse of your child looking at you, with the biggest smile on his face, so happy and proud that Mom or Dad is doing what I do.
This benefit could be the most valuable to some families. Capoeira is an art that is multigenerational! Anyone who wishes to learn the art is able to experience it. This means that families can participate together in Capoeira. Not every family will take advantage of this possibility, but the ones that do will be greatly enriched. Families are strengthened when they play and learn together. When children hit adolescence, family unity and communication might be tried and it is through hobbies and activities that individuals within that family will connect. Capoeira can be a great family strengthener. It not only keeps the individuals healthy, but also maintains a healthy family unit. Whether a child participates independently or with his or her whole family, Capoeira can make a powerful difference in the quality of that child’s life.
Once people are exposed to Capoeira, many people are fascinated by it! Therefore, many Capoeira groups (including ours) do quite a bit of performing around town in community events, schools, festivals, and more. Whether your child is just starting out or is part of our advanced demo team, your child will have the opportunity to perform in public. This is a great way for children to build confidence in themselves and their capabilities at an early age.
I can’t speak for other martial arts schools, but in ours, lasting relationships are built and genuine friends are made. The majority of our students (kids, parents, and adult students) spend time with each other after and outside of class time.
Respect is engrained into everything we do. Often, children who come into our program with discipline or respect problems quickly fix their problem simply because they are surrounded by other children exuding respect, discipline, confidence, and friendship.
Now, more than ever, kids need to learn to believe in themselves. They need to understand that they have the power and capability inside themselves to accomplish anything they set their mind to. We see their potential and we believe in them. Sometimes all it takes is someone else to believe in a child before they will believe in themselves. We help to show them their capabilities and how to be their best and achieve goals.
Kids are naturally drawn to Capoeira because of its rhythmic music, exciting interactions, and acrobatics. Kids love things that are exciting and dynamic. Capoeira has that covered! Once a child is exposed to what Capoeira is, they eagerly step up for the challenge of learning the movements, the music, and the elements that make Capoeira what it is.
On a personal note to you, the parent, we are parents too. We understand how much love you have for your child and how you want only the best out of life for your child. We use Capoeira as a catalyst to help instill the values that make your child the best he or she can be. We are here to work on the future and make it bright. Like the old proverb states, It takes a village to raise a child, and here at CBP Martial Arts Academy we want to be a big part of that village.
Monday & Tuesdays: All Levels 5:00pm – 6:00pm Wednesdays: Demo Team – 4:30pm – 6:00pm (1st & last of the month) Thursday & Fridays: All Levels 4:45pm – 6:00pm

So what was going through your mind before your first class? Can you relate to Tataruga’s story below or was your experience totally different? Thank you Tartaruga for the inspiring story; and congratulations on your tremendous progress!!
My first day of Capoeira was a long time coming. I envy the student that just shows up one day to try, not knowing anything about it. As the saying goes, ignorance is bliss, and in the case of Capoeira this saying certainly holds some value. Not many people in their right mind would willingly submit their bodies to spinning, kicking, flipping, tumbling, handstands, squats, and all other movements you can think of, plus a few more that you can’t imagine. To just show up and find out about these things as you go might be a little scary, but what you don’t know won’t hurt you. I on the other hand was exposed to Capoeira for the better part of a year. I was aware of everything that was involved. I knew I would sweat buckets the first night. I knew about the soreness, the dizziness, and the blisters. I knew all of this but I still signed up.
The fact that I signed up doesn’t make me special. I think most people are aware Capoeira can be intense. However, the fact that I signed up might be surprising to you. Capoeira is an African Brazilian martial art. It involves lots of fast movements, kicking, cartwheels, handstands, cardio, core strength and singing in Portuguese. The average person that thinks Capoeira might immediately think of a young, dark skinned man with long hair and the body of a God. Let’s stop right there. In the case you’re reading this and picturing me that way, I need to set the record straight. Don’t get all excited, this is not going to be fifty shades of anything. I am the opposite of all that. I am a white, suburban living, desk job working, clinically obese, husband, and a father in my mid thirties. Plus, I have high blood pressure and joint problems.
For about one year my two boys spent their days after school at Capoeira Brazilian Pelourinho in Orlando, FL. They progressed quickly and learned allot under the guidance of Mestre Lazaro and Formada Gine. As their father, I was only a spectator. I watched their classes, and left as the adult classes were beginning. I would have given almost anything to be younger and fitter and to be able to be a Capoeirista. I think Mestre could sense it too. He asked me almost every week when I was going to try a class. I was upset though for letting myself get in the shape I was in. If only I was younger. If only I was in shape. If only I had the courage to try. My head was filled with if only. I accepted the fact that my time had passed though. Perhaps I could just clap and sing along with my boys and live vicariously through them. That would have to be good enough. I’d accepted this as the answer, given up hope of changing myself, and told myself it was the only logical answer. Then my wife joined the academy and changed everything.
With out her even knowing, she had just disproved all the lies I sold myself. Now my entire family was doing this Capoeira stuff and I was still spectating. I decided I was going to do it too. I was going to do Capoeira, but first I just needed to lose some weight. I spent many more weeks finding every possible excuse not to join Capoeira. I never lost weight and kept it off. At the rate I was going I would never step one foot on the mat. The truth is I was scared, embarrassed, and ashamed. I didn’t want to be the fat guy in class. I didn’t want to be the gross sweaty guy or the guy that couldn’t keep up and the loser slowing everything down. I was so worried about what other people would think, but I was only hurting myself.
I finally realized this, but still couldn’t completely pull the trigger. I had to ease into it, like you would a cold pool. I pulled Gine aside one night and told her my thoughts. I told her my feelings about wanting to join the class. I wanted to only tell her, not even my family, cause I could only take the laughter of one person. I fully expected her face to try and hide a laugh, or at least look at me waiting for a punch line. What right did I have to say I wanted to join a Capoeira academy? How did I think I could even pretend I was on the same level as her, and could do a fraction of the things she could? I almost felt as if I was saying something disrespectful. Yet she didn’t laugh, she smiled , she was excited. She told me all about what to expect and how things would go. I kept feeding her excuses, my weight, my knees, my blood pressure, and more, and she kept feeding me positive responses. I gave her every possible opportunity to talk me out of it. All I needed was for her to just appear like she questioned the possibility of me doing Capoeira, and I was out of there. Nobody would even have to know I had the thought. I just needed her to look at me funny for one second, but she never even waivered. I had to join the academy.
I slept on the idea for about a week, before finally telling my family and Mestre. They of course had the same reaction. They were all filled with pure joy and couldn’t wait for me to get started. Everyone was excited but me. I was still scared. Sure the people I knew were happy and somehow believed in me, but what about these strangers, what about this group of Capoeristas? I kept looking at the schedule waiting for my fist day. I was going to be there at 6:00 pm, on a Wednesday, for the Mom’s Class.
The day I showed for class was different than every day before. I had been going there for over a year each day to pick up the boys, but the feeling of going there to partake in the insanity myself was eerily surreal. I sat there in my truck for a few minutes pumping myself up. As I finally strolled across the parking lot I felt like I was being watched. Things looked differently, I was oddly more aware. When I entered the front door I felt like everyone knew I was about to take my first class. As I approached the training mat I grew even more nervous. There was no turning back now, somehow I knew the second my bare foot touched the mat I would be changed forever. I could not quit in front of my family or ever give up. I had to make a commitment to myself to change who I was physically and finally believe in myself enough to do it. I had waded into the cold water far enough, it was time to take the dive.
I made it on the mat and very stealthily moved to the corner. Looking back, how did I think I would secretly get all 300 pounds of me to the other side of the gym unnoticed? Nerves do some crazy things. I did my best to pretend like I was stretching and warming up for class. Look busy, don’t make eye contact, be serious, show off your amazing stretch moves. God only knows what crazy things I was doing by myself, trying to look occupied. I’m surprised nobody grabbed hold of my tongue fearful I was having a seizure lying there on the floor. I managed to make it through my stretching solo with out having to tell too many people I was doing class.
The start of class was signaled with Brazilian music playing loudly over the speakers. Everyone instantly began running in a circle around the gym to warm up. I joined the back of the line. I was the caboose in the Capoeira Mom’s Class conga line. And at that moment I finally found some confidence. I looked at all these Moms and tried to hype myself up. If these Moms were doing it, I could surely do it. Fast-forward five minutes, the hype is gone, and the confidence has been long forgotten. The only thing I’m thinking now is what will kill me first, heart attack or a stroke? I can’t keep up, I can’t breathe, and I can’t even see straight. I decided to die that day. I was not going to give up. I would rather die trying than leave a quitter that night. I kept going, flinging my body around, trying to imitate the movements everyone else was doing. Maybe I didn’t have to die, even if I just broke something I had a real reason not to finish what I started. But it didn’t happen, I managed to stay alive and unbroken.
What interested me most was all of the Moms reactions to me being in their class. I tried not to care that they would be judging me, and upset I was slowing them down, and grossing them out. I accepted there might be some laughter at my movements, and eye rolling at my feeble attempts. I did all of this mental preparation for nothing. These super Moms did the exact opposite. They clapped fanatically when I did a movement. They weren’t clapping to be nice, they were clapping because they were that excited to see me do a cartwheel. Instead of the sound of laughter, I heard encouragement and actual sounds of excitement when I did a spinning kick. There was no eye rolling, only the look of acceptance and encouragement in their eyes. To top it all off, the fear of being the gross guy was quickly put to rest. They were high fiving me, patting my back, and hugging me, sweaty and all. These Moms stole my heart that day. Truth be told, I’m tearing up as I write this. I love them all dearly and whether they know it or not, their kindness is a huge part of the reason I am becoming a healthier person today.
I managed to finish the class. I felt like a champion when it was over. Everyone told me how great I did and how happy they were for me. My wife and kids were visibly proud of me and celebrated my achievement. As the more advanced students filed in for the next class they greeted me and welcomed me to the group also. The feeling was euphoric. I was part of the group. I felt like I was just adopted by the most diverse group of people I had ever met and had instantaneously increased the size of my family twenty fold. I had done it, I had found the courage to take my first Capoeira class and survived. Because these strangers believed in me, I was able to believe me as well. I was finally moving down the path I had wanted for so long, I was going to become a Capoeirista!
