Minnesota Capoeira Acadamy began in 2009 under the leadership of Instructor Coruja (James Lynch). In 2010 Monitora Vespa (Jennifer Johnson - Blanchard) brought her martial arts experience and school management and business skills to the team, and together they developed it from a small club to a thriving training academy. Currently the group is operated by a board of Director; James Lynch, Jennifer Johnson-Blanchard, Deborah Bozic and Jim Bozic. The excitement and dedication of our students is our strongest point. We pride ourselves in creating a positive community made up of people from all different walks of life, and we firmly believe that capoeira has the power to improve the quality of life of everyone.
The mission of our academy is to promote the art of Capoeira around the globe through development of a high quality training academy, a professional performance group and a community culture and education program.
Capoeira Floracao, of the Minnesota Capoeira Academy, works in association with Luanda Brasil Capoeira. This group is led by Mestrando Camundongo (Felipe Moreira).
