"An amazing experience"
If you want to learn Capoeira Salvador is the place to do it. The instructors were excellent. Marley was brilliant, a great martial artist and such a nice guy. The hotel was really nice, very safe, and the staff were so accommodating. The food was really good and the rooms really nice. I highly recommend this Capoeira course and the Pousada, but try to see when booking that they can book you with other campers to improve the overall experience. I had a great time, but I was the only one on the course, and I was flexible with my dates so I could have moved it about to fit with some other people who were also keen to learn capoeira. Also the Pousada was further from the beach than I thought, so just be aware of this. Overall I had a fantastic time and would recommend.

"Unforgettable experience "
Even in terms of capoeira in Brasil, grupo Engenho and their instructors are some of the best around. They live and breathe capoeira, and are excited to share everything from the movements to the music with anyone who wants to learn. The experience you get practicing at the center in Abrantes is unique, the people are friendly and talented, and the accommodation and transportation is superb. I strongly recommend learning at least some Portuguese before going, and having some formation in dance / being in good shape to get the most out of it. Even then, the instructors have lots of experience teaching total beginners, and you will never be excluded for learning.
