For the last seven years, Professor Zumbi and his students have been living a Capoeira experience that is unparalleled in Korea. Visit us on weekends to partake in our 2:00 PM open rodas and prove it to yourself. The roda is always free.
Thanks to Mestre (Master) Suassuna, the founder of the Cordão de Ouro group in Brazil, Mestre Chicote, and a few other execptional teachers of this Afro-Brazilian artform, our group in Seoul delivers a Capoeira experience of the highest quality. To understand what is meant by the Capoeira experience we recommend that you join the group for a year. The Capoeira experience is most easily documented via the roda. We can share some of these experiences with you through our videos. However, the capoeira experience spills over into our daily lives. Zumbi and his students continue living the Capoeira experience long after the class is over and all the games have stopped. Just visit and ask any one of us what it is like.
If you would like us to perform at an event, please contact Professor Zumbi directly via email. Please fill out the membership application form if you would like to become a member of the group. To learn more about our Capoeira classes at the Capoeira Studio located (here) in center of Seoul, please call us at 010.9090.9183.
Check out our tutorials and practice whenever you can. If you need some extra help, come to the Capoeira Studio and talk to Professor Zumbi.
Students had this to say about their experience at the Capoeira Studio and Cordão de Ouro Seoul:
Capoeira will challenge you to do things you never imagined possible, and when you fall down (because you WILL fall down, many times) this group will pick you up, brush you off, and cheer you on as you try again. This is a lifelong pursuit, not something that can be mastered in a year or two, yet Capoeristas training throughout their lives not only for the art itself, but for the relationships they build along the way.
Capoeira ist mehr als nur Sport. Es besteht aus Musik, Tanzen, Singen, Akrobatik und vor allem - Gemeinschaft und Respekt. CDO Seoul gibt mir das Gefühl, eine Familie in Südkorea zu haben. Gerade in meinem stressigen Berufsleben hat mir CDO Seoul und Zumbi (Trainer) mir einen wunderbaren Ort zum abschalten, mit Freude(n) und der Kreativität geschaffen. Es lohnt sich einfach mal vorbei zu kommen!!
