Capoeira Superação Arts was founded on November 20, 2011 by Alemão Superação and his students as a vehicle to express our love of the Brazilian martial art of Capoeira in South Florida and work with the greater capoeira community to promote capoeira as both an art form and a fighting style. The motto "Inspirando uma nova geração" literally means "Inspiring a new generation" and is a reflection of capoeira as a gift to be passed on to each generation. Our responsibility is to teach the history, music, culture and philosophy as well as the movement. For us, capoeira is much more than a martial art. In 2017, we took on the challenge of opening our own studio in Miramar, Florida to help inspire the next generation of capoeiristas. After 3 years of hard work we suffered the fate of many small businesses and closed our doors after the worldwide pandemic made in person teaching not sustainable.This isn't how we envisioned our 10 year celebration, but adversity is not a stranger to us as we aim to serve our students and the community in a safe and meaningful way. We continue to teach our students as we look for a new path forward and plan for the next ten years. In April of 2022 we began giving in-person classes at the Jus Hip Hop Dance Studio in Pembroke Pines. We are excited to again accept new students and welcome back others. Superação is more than a name to us, it has become our motto: Superação is defined as "the act of outdoing yourself; overcoming adversity, surpassing, surmounting, transcending, achieving against all odds."
