What is Capoeira? 
Capoeira is a dynamic brazilia martial art that combines elements of fight, acrobatics and music in a very unique and magnetic way. Performed by two people (preferely), it is often called “Capoeira game”. The uniqueness of Capoeira, will give your body physical strength, awearness, reflexes, flexibility, self-confidence, concentration, courage and creativity. However, the only way to really understand Capoeira is to see it and try it yourself.

About Instructor Caxixi:

Harly Materan or more formerly known as Instructor “Caxixi” started Capoeira in 2001 in Caracas, Venezuela under the “Grupo Raizes do Brasil”. First captivated by the acrobatic movements involved in Capoeira, he joined the classes. There, Caxixi practiced for eight (8) years before changing to the group “Capoeira Brasil” under Instructor Guarana. Traveling with the group to brazil in 2007 and 2008 Harly became fascinated with Capoeira even more. Capoeira Brasil Venezuela had their first “Batizado” during November 2010 bringing many guests from around the country including Mestre Paulao as well as Mestre Kim – Fortaleza , Ceara, Brasil. Inspired by Mestre Kims’ methodology, movements and song Caxixi switched to train under Mestre Kim in December of 2017. Since 2012 Caxixi has been training students from Venezuela, Indiana and Oregon and currently resides in Indiana.

Throughout the years, Caxixi has attended multiple events in different countries such as Venezuela, Brazil as well as states in the United States. 

Today, “Caxixi” teaches classes in Westfield, Indiana at FitNow Bootcamp. Capoeira Brasil Indianapolis is continually growing and is dedicated to the unique, creative, and free-flowing art that is Capoeira.
