Known also as Thai Boxing, Muay Thai (MT) is a dynamic and high-impact martial art reared over centuries in its birthplace of Thailand. It’s since been adopted and popularized in the West, and for good reason; its use of punches, kicks, knees and elbows, and grappling has proven to be highly effective in hand-to-hand military combat.
Muay Thai is deeply rooted as Thailand's national sport. It's gained exponential notoriety in the U.S. over the past few decades and its speed, conditioning, balance, poise and power has been greatly utilized as a striking tool in MMA. These attributes have been well implemented in the fitness arena, proven to shed weight, increase aerobic capacity, and sculpt physique.

Capoeira is both a Brazilian martial art and also a cultural experience. It was created by African slaves in Brazil as a form of self-defense and a method of cultural preservation against the oppressive slave owners. It is played in a roda (circle) by two capoeiristas who exchange a spontaneous combination of kicks, offensive moves, acrobatics, and floor maneuvers. While the capoeiristas in the center of the roda engage in a dynamic and intriguing conversation, the surrounding participants who form the roda sing in chorus and clap to the rhythm played on the berimbau, a stringed bow-like instrument that leads the roda. The atabaque, pandeiro, and agogo accompany the berimbau.
Capoeira was illegal for many years until Manuel dos Reis Machado, better known as Mestre Bimba, succeeded in gaining legality for the art and opened the first capoeira academy in Salvador, in the state of Bahia.
Today, there are numerous capoeira schools throughout Brazil, many of which have branches in various countries worldwide. We are happy to welcome capoeira to Elements Athletics and encourage you to try this cultural and historic movement experience.
