Kate Haber, 'Pimenta,' has been a Capoeirista since 2009. She began her studies under Mestre Batata in Los Angeles.  She refers to capoeira as her 'martial arts soul food' because it offers expedient fun, health and a rich community.  Teaching capoeira to kids is a passion of hers.  

Kate teaches capoeira to kids age 5-14.  She stresses cooperation, strength building, safety and an open heart in her classes.  Please visit Capoeira Besouro Oregon for more info.

"I love how kids feel the urge take capoeira out of the academy and into their neighborhoods.  Capoeira inspires playfulness, challenges you and inspires growth physically as well as emotionally."
