My story

[p][b]Dear Friends and Supporters, [/b][/p][p][b]Your funding enables us to provide daily classes in Capoeira, workshops, indoor and outdoor teaching events, 'roda's, (the traditional circle of Capoeira) and our annual Capoeira charity festival throughout the year. All these projects are aimed at local communities in London, specifically in areas where young people might face differing social and economic disadvantage. We believe in the endless benefits to be found in the life changing discipline of Capoeira, and the development that is encouraged by working towards goals for the body and mind, while learning unique movements and music, in a fun and supportive atmosphere. [/b][/p][p][b]WITH YOUR DONATIONS AND SUPPORT WE CAN HELP YOUNG PEOPLE FEEL SELF REALISED, CONFIDENT, AND HEALTHY, AND HELP THEM DISCOVER WHAT THEIR BODY AND MIND ARE CAPABLE OF. [/b][/p][p]For more information please visit [url=http://www.capoeiracharityuk.org.uk/]www.capoeiracharityuk.org.uk[/url]Don't forget that if you are a UK tax payer, using Gift Aid means that for every pound you give, we get an extra 25p from the Inland Revenue, helping your donation go further. [/p][p][b]Together, I know we can. [/b][/p][p][br][/p][p][b]Team Capoeira Academy UK [/b][/p][p][b]Brilho Capoeira Charity UK (charity number, 1164178), is dedicated to changing lives of all ages through Capoeira, with a particular focus on those who are young and/or dis-advantaged and who through the inspiration, motivation and discipline of the art form, find extraordinary methods for self expression, goal oriented development and building inner confidence. We are currently holding numerous successful projects working with children across London and the testimony to our efforts is immense, from those who are finding life changing ways to artistically explore their mental aptitude and physical abilities.[/b][/p][p][b]Our organisation inspires the young to discover their own potential, while providing children and their parents the space, skills and community to improve their quality of life thorough Capoeira. The art form is a cultural UNESCO icon, unique in its practice and is steeped in history. It encourages inner and outer development and the chance to see what we are capable of, through working with the body and mind. [/b][/p][p][b]Our charity was founded in 2008 and continues to grow from strength to strength, driven by our dreams to give children and young people the chance to feel empowered within themselves, while leading more active and fun lifestyles. We promote healthy living and mental well being through the practice of Capoeira. [/b][/p][p][b]We work all over the city in partnerships with different schools, sports centres and other charities. Our work involves teaching daily and weekly classes and workshops, creating indoor and out door events around the traditions of Capoeira and organising music and instrument lessons also.[/b][/p][p][b]We additionally hold our annual Capoeira Charity Festival in November, now in its 5th year, which is attended by thousands of people from the communities we work in and our international affiliates. The event is a two day spectacle and includes our grading ceremony, where all get the chance to showcase their ability in front of their families and communities, and are rewarded for their efforts throughout the year, with belts they have worked towards. [/b][/p][p][b]Brilho Capoeira Charity is chaired by Edgar Leite, more frequently known as Professor Bombril, who has been practising Capoeira for twenty years and teaching it for more than ten. He is the current European champion and a silver medallist also from the recent World Championships, held in Brazil this year. [/b][/p][p][b]Professor Bombril is DBS certified and is dedicated to enhancing the quality of young peoples lives, through the practice, joy and discipline of Capoeira.[/b][/p]
