Capoeira Brasil Los Angeles

Capoeira Brasil Los Angeles (CBLA) is the North American headquarters of Capoeira Brasil, an international cultural organization. CBLA came into existence in 1998 when renowned capoeirista, Mestre Boneco, moved from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to Los Angeles and established the school. In 2002, Mestre Boneco and CBLA went on to found its non-profit, Benção Brasil (‘blessed Brazil’).

Under Mestre Boneco’s guidance, CBLA grew into a close-knit, friendly, and diverse group that trains hard and plays the game of Capoeira with power and grace. Our space is where martial arts, fitness and culture meets.

In addition to the CBLA Mid-City headquarters, Professors Chegado and Pavão also run a large adult and youth Capoeira program at their location in Northeast Los Angeles (Eagle Rock). This location is known as CBLA East.
