About United Capoeira Association

The goal of the United Capoeira Association in Los Angeles (UCAinLA) is to bring the rich and dynamic culture of Capoeira to the local community.

What differentiates us

Capoeira originated in Brasil, and is a dynamic expression of Afro-Brazilian culture. Today it can be found in many countries throughout the entire world. Capoeira is an art form that encompasses martial arts, dance like elements, and acrobatic movements, as well as its own philosophy, history, culture, music, and songs.

How we were trained

Instrutor Guatambu (gwah-tahm-BU) has been training capoeira for over 12 years and and teaching for over six years under the guidance of Mestres Acordeon, Rã, and Suelly of the United Capoeira Association in Berkeley, CA. Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil, and educated in the San Francisco Bay Area, Instrutor Guatambu shares his goal of honoring the joy, personal growth, and community that the art of capoeira offers to any willing to learn.

Why we love what we do

Guatambu loves to share his passion for capoeira with his students. Any and all are welcome to come and take class! The only things you must bring are: a desire to have fun, an open mind, and an interest in expanding your horizons.
