This article talk about Capoeira and its processes of teaching and learning from a qualitative research which included in the first stage of fieldwork a continued course of education for Capoeira's teachers. We highlighted the understanding that we have about Capoeira and the importance of their inclusion in physical education classes at school. We detail how the course was for teachers in which we incluided as a participant observer, and discuss the teaching-learning processes developed. Finally, we point out some evidences about the difficulties presented by the participants, the positives experiences elapsed and the possibility of approaching the teaching of Capoeira based on gestural interaction.
