Capoeira Mandinga Shanghai - The first capoeira group in Shanghai! "Everything started at the end of the year 2005: a few capoeiristas started to meet on the weekends in Luxun Park, weather permitting. In the 3 years since then what was once spontaneous training in the park between a few enthusiasts has grown into a proper capoeira group, which has on several occasions invited instructors from all over the world to come and teach. The person responsible for keeping capoeira alive in Shanghai has been Diego “Guerreiro”: in October 2007 he invited Mestre Marcelo to come to Shanghai for a workshop, and Capoeira Shanghai became part of Mestre’s international group, Capoeira Mandinga. Contra Mestre Cipo’, Contra Mestre Batatinha and Instrutor Marcão have all taught in Shanghai, contributing greatly to the development of capoeira here, and helping our students prepare for The First Annual Batizado of Capoeira Mandinga Shanghai which took place in September 2008" Part of Capoeira Mandinga Group (Mestre Marcelo) Visit our website Yan’An Xi Road n.358 (延安西路358号3楼), 3rd floor, near Nan Jing Xi Lu (between Nan Jing Xi lu and Zhenning Lu).

3 months of capoeira, I'm already addicted ! A good sweat, a great atmosphere, an amazing culture to discover.
Oh, and schedule has changed, it's Mon/Tue/Thu from 8:00 pm and Sat from 5:00 pm.
I have been playing capoeira for 4 months and feel a positive influence to mind, body and spirit. All colors, shapes and sizes can benefit, though it is a hard sweaty work out. Fun international group too! We can form a mini United Nations council here. Aside from training, we have a lot of impromptu dinners and outings. Salve!
for those who don't know, capoeira is an awesome Brazilian "martial art" that combines dance, gymnastics and martial arts (all done to fun brazilian beats). if you're looking for a fun challenge and workout, this is not to be missed
