Association QMC School of Capoeira is a not-for-profit arm of our school that works within the community using Capoeira as a medium to foster behavior change.
Capoeira was formed in the 16th century by enslaved Brazilians who used the art to elevate their spirits, whilst improving their fitness levels and mental well-being. The groups practicing capoeira used music and movement to retain their cultural traditions.
Association QMC School of Capoeira was developed in 2009 by Contre Mestre Marcus Cabeca, who uses his experience in life coaching to work with local communities by providing opportunities for self-development. The Association has previously partnered with Kingston Council, Ealing Council and London Sport to use capoeira and its values to provide areas in the London borough with initiatives that support local communities.
