Here’s What Parents are Saying!
“My son adores Capoeira, and I decided to join the mother’s class three months later”
“I first saw Capoeira being played at a park in Chicago back in 1995. I felt right at home while the Capoeristas played to the rhythm of drums and songs. Even though I felt so connected to this art form, I was also very intimidated by it, and for a while I actually convinced myself that I was too old to do all those head stands, hand stands, back flips, and “crazy acrobatics.” It wasn’t until about four months ago that I gathered the courage to introduce my son to Capoeira. I had a feeling that he was going to be “blown away” by it, and possibly I was going to feel the urge to participate in some shape or form. Well, I was right, my son adores Capoeira, and I, as I suspected, decided to join the mother’s class three months later. Capoeira music, and songs make us feel right at home. At Capoeira Brazilian Pelourinho Academy the vibes are friendly, welcoming, encouraging, and contagious. We are always encouraged to believe in ourselves and our bodies, to be strong, to be considerate of self and others, to be respectful, to be helpful, and to always do our best.”

“From the first moment we walked through the academy we felt we were treated like family”
When we came to Capoeira Brazilian Pelourinho we were looking for a sport for Lucas that not only he would enjoy, but also that our entire family would enjoy. We have always known about Capoeira and jumped at the opportunity when we saw the sign posted at Lucas’ school. We called that same day and spoke to Mestre Lazaro: “come check it out!” he said, and so we did.
From the first moment we walked through the academy we felt we were treated like family. Having taken Capoeira for only two weeks, Lucas was invited to participate in the kids competition; it made him so happy to be able to participate! That’s when we knew we were in the right place. The competition was not about finishing in first place, it was about participating and believing in yourself. CBP has become such a big part of our family, it has filled that void left by living far away from our family. We love you Genie and Mestre Lazaro, and all the values that you guys represent: believing in yourself, discipline, and respect. CBP is family.”

From focusing, to goal setting, to self-discipline, to self-respect – kids emerge from this program changed for the better. And their parents couldn’t be happier.
After just a few weeks of martial arts, this is what happens…
Determination to Succeed – From Day 1 in martial arts your child sets goals, and accomplishes them. The more and more she does this – the more ambitious she becomes.
Attention & Focus – Parents of children with attention problems breathe sighs of relief after just a few short weeks.
Completing Tasks the First Time They’re Asked – In martial arts, we have just a few simple rules. One of those rules is that when your child is asked to do something – he does it the first time.
Self-Respect & Control – When it comes to bullies, kids in martial arts don’t back down. They have the confidence to look a bully in the eyes, and stand their ground.
Weight Loss – It’s easy these days for kids to not exercise. As a result, many children experience weight problems at a young age. Martial Arts and more specifically, Capoeira, is an amazing form of exercise – Your child will be active the entire time. We will always encourage him to do his best. And if he happens to be overweight – martial arts will help him get down to a healthy weight. This reduces risk for many health problems that can occur now, and later on in life. It also increases energy, alertness, and overall happiness. He’ll never feel better.
But rather than tell you about them myself – just listen to what these parents had to say…
“She just can’t wait for martial arts days.”
At first, I wasn’t sure if Isabella would like the program. After all, she’s only 6, so she never really sticks to anything. Boy was I wrong! She gets extremely upset if we ever have to miss a class now. And I can tell she’s more focused, more attentive, and just all around happier after starting this program.
Maria (Isabella’s Mom)
“The bully backed down.”
“When Bryan got off the bus today, and got in the car, he couldn’t stop talking about how he stood up to this bully who had been picking on him for weeks! He said the bully backed down, and everyone saw it! I got so choked up that he looked at me and asked me why I was crying. I just told him I was so proud of him. Thank you!
William (Bryan’s Dad)
“Will martial arts make my kid violent?”
Absolutely not! We don’t teach kids how to kick and punch so they can go down the street and beat up the neighbor’s kid. Instead, we teach 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 who were violent before they joined our class changed, and became non-violent. So no, martial arts won’t make your child violent!
“What if my child’s not athletic? Will he have a hard time?”
Often children who don’t find success in team sports come to martial arts. And they love it. That’s because with martial arts you go at your own pace.
See, team sports actually harm the self-esteem of children who aren’t very athletic. When they don’t perform well, the other kids can be pretty nasty. And this can leave some serious scars on their self-esteem.
But with martial arts, they can’t let anyone down. Everyone goes at their own pace. Some kids learn quicker than others – but the children who advance quickly are not valued more than the kids who advance slowly. Everyone is greatly encouraged – regardless of his or her athletic level.
“Will my child learn a talent that they can be proud of?”
Many children find pride in being able to do “cool” things like dancing, juggling, singing, playing an instrument, etc., etc., etc.
I’ve seen many kids enter talent shows, and show off their martial arts skills. The crowd is blown away every time!
There’s simply something fascinating and exciting about watching martial arts. And your child will take great pride in his abilities.
“What age is appropriate for martial arts?”
We have programs for kids who are 3 years old all the way to teenagers. And we even have programs for adults. So to be honest – every age is appropriate. No child is too young or too old. We have a class that fits just right.
“Will my child get hurt?”
I’ve had children come to my program for years without ever obtaining a single injury. This is actually the case with most children.
Have children gotten injured in my martial arts class? Yes, some have. But the injuries were no different than those which kids who play baseball and other sports get.
In the words of a parent I recently spoke with, “The instructors pay attention to detail when it comes to safety.” From padded floors, to proper gear, to step-by-step instruction – we do everything in our power to insure your child’s safety. I can’t guarantee your child won’t be injured – but I can tell you that almost no children receive injuries in my program. And that’s because we take your child’s safety very seriously.
“Will my child have fun? Will he want to stick with the program?”
When parents take their kids to appointments – normally the parent has to run around and do everything in their power to get their children to the appointment on time.
“Hurry up!” they shout, “We’ll be late!” (How many times have you said this?)
But with martial arts, something fascinating happens… Often the children are the ones yelling these things! They don’t want to be late, and they never want to miss a class.
In fact, I know of many parents who use martial arts as an incentive to get chores done. If the kids are good, do their chores, and do their homework – they get martial arts as a reward.
That’s because your child will have a ton of fun. He’ll be laughing and smiling throughout the entire class. And because He’ll constantly be setting and reaching goals – He’ll want to stick with the program. It will become a part of his life as if it was always there.
“Is martial arts just for boys? Or can my girl take martial arts too?”
On this page I’ve said “he” a lot. But the truth is, there are just as many girls in many of our classes as there are boys.
Girls love martial arts just as much, and get the same fulfillment out of it as boys do.
Also, if I’ve learned anything in my years of teaching, it’s that girls are just as tough as boys. Many are even tougher! So you don’t have to worry about your little girl getting hurt, or feeling scared because she’ll be practicing with boys. In fact, the boys may even be the ones who are scared.
Like with anything, martial arts is not for every child.
9 times out of 10 parents do find that martial arts is the perfect fit for their children. But in the 1 situation out of 10 where its simply not a great fit…
