Capoeira in Sheffield

Capoeira is a Brazilian art form that combines martial art, dance, music and philosophy.

Cordão de Ouro is an internationally recognised Capoeira group and has been established in Sheffield since 2004. We have developed a strong social and community network within the city, we have also supported many events and charity fundraisers around Sheffield.

Our lessons are on Monday, Thursday and Saturday. This regular training will improve physical fitness, balance, coordination, confidence and musicality.

Come along to one of our classes to get started. Beginners, kids, students and adults all welcome!

Batizado 2017

Professor Tatanka and the instructors from CDO Sheffield cordially invite you to our 3rd Batizado. This is a celebration of our students' hard work over the last year. We have amazing guests who will share their knowledge and inspiration with us over the course of the weekend. There will be new belts for our students. And of course, there will be rodas. Lots of rodas. All levels are welcome.

We're looking forward to this event, and hope you can come and share it with us.#
