Women in Capoeira

Capoeira Mandinga has a strong group of dedicated female capoeiristas, including two of the first women to ever graduate in capoeira in the US .

Mestra Sorriso graduated in 1992,  and Mestra Lagosta graduated in 1995. These women, along with many other great American female capoeiristas, have helped to lay the foundation for the success of women in capoeira in this country.

Our dedicated and committed female students are helping to build up the next generation.
