Capoeira São Salvador – Hawai’i Island is a group that exists to train people in capoeira on the Big Island of Hawaii. Students are educated in methods of attack and evasion while becoming familiar with the music, culture, philosophy, and language of Capoeira. The result is both a total body workout and immersion in a beautiful Brazilian art form.
Capoeira São Salvador was founded by Mestre Pedro Cruz of Salvador, Bahia. He has been teaching in Portland, Oregon since 2001. The class in Hilo is taught by Sargaço, who has trained under Mestre Pedro Cruz since 2011.
