CDO Scotland follows the philosophies and techniques of Grand Master Suassuna and Mestre Papa Leguas.

Grupo Cordao de Ouro Capoeira is quickly recognised by its distinct mix of expression, improvisation and agility. Through specific training methods, students of Cordao de Ouro can discover ways of moving that they perhaps did not think could be possible.

Our classes are based on the premise that Capoeira is fundamentally a game. Though there are aspects of martial arts or dance,the movements are based on the interaction between people in an exciting, dynamic but peaceful context.

The main focus of CDO Scotland is to provide a safe and encouraging environment for students to develop their physical confidence and ability. Proper care is taken to avoid injury, through disciplined movement, warming up and stretching. Students are not pushed to do anything they feel might compromise their safety.

Though within Capoeira, there are plenty of dynamic movements, these are not essential and Capoeira can be enjoyed on a recreational level well into old age. ( Some Masters are in their 90s and still playing!) For those who want to learn all the acrobatic movements, we have the facilities and resources to take you to an international standard.

We believe everyone has something to bring to Capoeira and many things to gain from it, within the game there is plenty of space to explore your own philosophy and put your own personality into the game.

This has transformed my fitness! The flexibility of being able to go to a variety of places/classes has been super convenient - it works for me in loads of cities and I can team up with different friends to try new classes.

Been doing it for about two and a half years and love it. So many choices at such a great price. And the motivational messages are always a good little spark to keep you focused.
