Project Capoeira is a non- profit organization that was founded in 2001 by Master Capoeira artist Adenilson dos Santos, also known as Mestre Doutor.

The mission of Project Capoeira, Inc is to preserve, develop, and share the art of Capoeira, an Afro-Brazilian art form that combines elements of martial arts, games, music, and dance. Through instruction and demonstration, Project Capoeira fosters community and intercultural understanding and builds confidence and positive citizenship among disadvantaged groups, particularly Latino youth.
