HEALTH AND SECURITY

  • Before participating in any intense physical activity, it is strongly recommended for the student to have had a medical exam be aware of conditions that might impede his or her training.

  • Capoeira is a psychological practice whos physical movements can be addapted to different situations and body types.

  • Equipe Capoeira Brasileira does not encourage the use of capoeira as a tool for violence. Capoeira is first and foremost a martial art that englobes just as much self-defense, dance, playfulness, combat, fantassy, singing and music. Rules, rituals, traditions are established in accordence with a severe ethics code d'éthique that the student must respect.

  • Nonetheless, capoeira can be an intense and rigourous physical activity, that is why Equipe Capoeira Brasileira accentuates a safe training based on the foundations of contemporary capoeira: team spirit and cooperative help, friendship, discipline, perseverance, humility, respect of self and of others, confidence, etc. These teachings allow our capoeiristas to gradually devellop a un healthy spirit in a healthy body.

  • The kicks, stikes and all moves are dangerous.

  • All the kicks, stikes, stunts sweeps and take downs must never be executed in the intent of injuring your peers

  • The student must not hesitate in consulting the teacher if he or she feels an excersise is not good for him or her. Moreover, the student needs to inform the teacher at all times if he or she is experiencing faintness or and injury to prevent any complications of a health condition.

  • Equipe Capoeira Brasileira reserve the right to intervene or to stop any game or training being executed if it is not judged safe. Furthermore, Equipe Capoeira Brasileira reserve the right to expel or to refuse to accept a student in class if that particular student contravenes or does not respect the principles of the groups operation.

  • Equipe Capoeira Brasileira frees itself of all responsability and all damages, losses or thefts of objects, accidents, injuries or deaths caused during a training period or all other activity organized by Equipe Capoeira Brasileira.

  • The student is held responsible of all damages or accidents caused by him or herself or his or her peers to the infrastructure or equipement of the training room or studio; the student therefore should compensate for the reparation or replacement fees.
