Grupo Capoeira Luanda San Diego, Californiaa -homenagem Aladim Capoeira Luanda is an organization that practices, teaches, and preserves the Afro-Brazilian martial art of Capoeira.



     Capoeira Luanda practices a style of Capoeira known as  Capoeira   Regional  Contemporanea.  This   style   is derived  from  movements and sequences developed  by Mestre Bimba,  as well  as influences  and  evolutions of Capoeira  adopted by the  founding  Master  of Capoeira Luanda.

    Capoeira Luanda was founded on April 6th, 2007, after a long process of research and study under the direction and guidance of Mestre Jelon Vieira.

     Today, Capoeira Luanda has spread internationally with  centers  and  academies  in  the  United  States , Holland, Brazil, Germany, Spain, France, Peru, Colombia, Italy, and Turkey.

    The root of the name Luanda is a homage to Mestre Eziquiel  Martins, who founded the  Grupo  Luanda  de Capoeira in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil in 1963.

    Another  inspiration  behind  the  name  Luanda  was meaning of the word Luanda in Yoruba language which means  “the  junction of the  moon and  the earth”  and “Peace and imaginary land” in the Bantu dialect.

    Luanda is the capital of Angola and was one of the most  important  ports  during  the  slave  trade when Africans were taken to the Americas as  chattel. Luanda is one of the cities in West Africa where Africans used to say the last good bye for those who never returned.

    The  Africans  with  origins  back on the  slave  trade are the ones responsible for the richness of the African Culture in  Brazil and the  in big part for  the richness of Brazilian culture in general!
