Who We Are
Grand Rapids Capoeira is a school of West Michigan Cordão de Ouro. Classes are led by Juston "Monitor Talento" Espinoza and are formatted to create a safe, positive learning environment for students of any level. We strive to bring Capoeira to the Metro Grand Rapids area to help spread this culturally rich martial art. We also look to serve our community, both locally and globally, through charitable works. See our Community section below to find out more.
