CDO Hawaii is a Honolulu based non-profit organization dedicated to increase the cultural awareness and education through the arts of Afro-Brazil.  One of the famous art forms from Bahia in Brazil is “Capoeira”, an elusive martial art that was developed by African slaves.

We offer weekly Capoeira lessons for kids and adults in Honolulu. Stop by one of our classes, and give it a try. First class is always FREE!  If you would like to see live Capoeira in action, come to our street game on every First Friday in Chinatown!

Join our growing Capoeira community and let’s play!

Capoeira has shown me a whole new world!
