You have arrived at the website of Centro Cultural de Capoeira Mar Estradeiro in The Hague. Here you can find everything about our capoeira group, the classes of Filósofo, his writings and some more stuff. Have a look around and make yourself at home.


Mar Estradeiro is aimed at the Afro-Brazilian martial art of capoeira, in which music, play, dance, culture and community come together.

Our classes

There are weekly classes in capoeira and in Afro-Brazilian dance and percussion. We also organize workshops and give lectures about capoeira.

The written word

Although capoeira is firmly rooted in the oral tradition, there is a lot being written about her. Filósofo contributes to this corpus with his books and columns.
