Capoeira instructor Formiga Santos

Capoeira coming to Alberni

A martial art that combines self defense, dance and funky music is coming to Port Alberni on this weekend at Char's Landing.

Capoeira instructor Formiga Santos, who relocated to Port Alberni from Tofino a year ago, will give a beginners’ workshop on the Brazilian martial art this Saturday, Nov. 30 and Sunday, Dec. 1 from 1–4 p.m. daily at Char’s Landing.

Capoeira combines dance and self-defence moves, and has a strong musical element.

Santos will teach capoeira classes at Eighth Avenue Elementary on Tuesdays and Fridays beginning in January.
