About Our Group
Filhos de Santos - Groupo De Capoeira, Brisbane Capoeira Academy of Queensland, Australia
Filhos De Santos has been established in Queensland for over 14 years.
Filhos de Santos’ main philosophy is a focus on cultural awareness amongst its practitioners to further enrich the active training. By not only practicing the martial art form in a traditional manner but by also exploring the traditional music and the history that surrounds this ancient art form. (link to history of capoeira)
Filhos de Santos is a community focused group that is willing to take part in any events which aim to promote cultural awareness and youth development. Filhos de Santos has long been involved in such programs including: the Croc Festival, Youth Justice Program, teaching at local schools (Cairns and surrounding region), and numerous other community events.
We invite anyone who is interested in taking up Capoeira to come along and try it out for themselves. Whether your 8 years of age or 80 years of age. Capoeira is for all shapes and sizes not requiring any predetermined levels of fitness or flexibility.
