In Capoeira, music is present every class! There is no Capoeira without music and even if there is no actual music the player should be imagining a rhythm, a cadence to perform his art.
Music plays an important role in every child’s specially, but in every persons general development. Beginning at birth, music stimulates the brain and provides a platform for listening, for languages and for creativity; research shows that children who play an instrument excel academically, including scoring higher on standardized tests.
Studies have shown that playing a musical instrument can measurably enhance a child’s intellectual development: it engages imagination and creativity; promotes concentration and memory retention; develops abstract reasoning skills; sharpens problem-solving skills and emotional development; boosts self-confidence; builds self-discipline; makes learning fun; and as physical developments – sharpens hand-eye coordination; hones sense of rhythm; stimulates social interaction and encourages self expression; builds relationships with peers bringing people together.

Kids age 3 to 5
Their developmental process.

San Diego Capoeira Massape instructions for kids high five! It is my strong believe that Capoeira classes for the ages of 3 to 5 years old – specifically – are not really about teaching them strictly Capoeira. It is about using Capoeira as a tool to help and stimulate the kids, your kid, and their development as a person and citizen immerse in a society.

That means the focus is on the skills and abilities the kids are developing on each specific stage of their lives to understand themselves and others…

Using the rich and multiple Capoeira tools I can support and stimulate a successful development process of the children. That means to create a safe, reliable, and each time more conscious environment for their exploration of the world around them and specially the world inside them, body and mind. On this age, more at 3 and less as much as they get close to 5 the boys and grills are experiencing and exploring their inner world.

Preschool children are learning to use and test their bodies. The preschool years are a time for learning what they can do individually and how they
can do it. Locomotion plays a large role in motor and skill development and includes such activities
as moving the body through space, walking, running, hopping, jumping, rolling, dancing, climbing, and leaping. Preschoolers use these activities to investigate and explore the relationships among themselves, space, objects in space and others kids…
Below are some more of the aspects that kids on this age are developing and that I will be directly supporting and stimulating growth in classes with games, exercises and increasing communication, starting with the 3 years old on:
