Capoeira

Capoeira is a Brazilian game, somewhere between a martial art and a dance.  The movements are acrobatic and fluid and require flexibility and strength to perform. Capoeira is great fun to play, and our club aims to teach the physical skills, the music and the culture of Brazil while offering a vibrant social scene and an excellent way to stay in shape.

Sessions

We welcome anyone to come and try capoeira at any of our regular sessions. The first session is free and there is no selection process or minimum skill level. We train Thursday's 6:30-8pm at the Qmotion Mind and Body Studio. All are welcome – just be sure to bring loose fitting clothes and plenty of water.

Most classes end with an informal roda, a game in which you can play capoeira against an opponent. The roda is also available at our non-university classes at QMotion on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

Personal Fitness

QMSU offers a gym on the Mile End campus, Qmotion, as well as a sister-gym in Charterhouse Square, Fitness to Practice, both with competitive student membership rates. This is ideal for students who want to purchase a gym membership - which is separate from a Club Sport subs - to improve and maintain peak physical fitness.

With every gym membership, you get a free 60 minute one-to-one session with trained instructors which includes:

  • A personalised gym programme tailored to your own fitness goals;
  • A full demonstration of exercise and techniques, and guidance on resistance machines;
  • Information and advice on nutrition;
  • A 60 minute review session every 6-8 weeks to re-evaluate and re-customise a new programme to avoid plateaus.
