Capoeira LDM Club

In 1998 the Grupo de Capoeira Longe do Mar was founded in Mexico City, as a space to learn capoeira in a safe and comprehensive way (as no one needs to get hurt). Music, songs, dance, history, theater, struggle and language complement each other in what we consider, in addition to an art of struggle, a cultural manifestation and an artistic expression. Under this vision, we try to spread our art in Mexico through classes, workshops, meetings, exhibitions, conferences and other activities aimed at promoting its practice. As complementary activities, we promote and teach classes and workshops in the Portuguese language, maculelé, samba, batucada, Afro-Brazilian dance and acrobatics, among other activities. To boost the integration and creativity of the group members, we organize weekly rounds and convene, once a year, a tournament in which, beyond pure physical ability, the ability to work as a team is put to the test, as well as the artistic creativity of our students, instructors and teachers. We are a community of artists from various disciplines: musicians, dancers, actors, visual artists; of athletes and people of the most diverse occupations, who have found in the practice of capoeira a powerful means of expressing our concerns. For this reason, in addition to the sporting aspect of it, we have explored its artistic and cultural scope, as well as its ability to act as a tool for social and personal integration and development. In 2000 we published a book written and edited by some of our members. We have given workshops in various states of the republic and participated in international meetings and festivals. Since the founding of the group in 1998, we have organized an annual meeting at the national level, in which, as special guests, internationally recognized personalities within the field of capoeira participate. More than 300 students daily attend our various training centers in different parts of Mexico City, as well as the cities of Guanajuato,
