Capoeira Cordão de Ouro (CDO) Hawaii
Welcome! CDO Hawaii is a non-profit organization dedicated to increase the cultural awareness and education in Hawaii through Capoeira, an Afro-Brazilian art form which blends martial arts, dance, acrobatics and music. Capoeira was developed by African slaves in Brazil during the colonial era. Today, it is being practiced all around the world from South America to Europe, Asia, North America, and of course, Hawaii.
Capoeira does not rely on physical strength and is very playful, so people of all ages can train and play together. Not only does it improve your fitness, flexibility, reflexes and coordination, but also improves your musicality and overall energy.
We also practice other Afro-Brazilian arts such as Maculele, Samba Bateria, Dança Guerreiro and much more.
Join our growing Capoeira community and let’s play!
