WHAT IS CAPOEIRA

The Martial Art

Capoeira (ca-pu-wed-a) is the Brazilian martial art (yes martial art and not dance) that was created by African slaves in Brazil during the colonial era (around the 1500's) It was disguised, or made to appear, that it was dance, song, and music to hide the slaves training in preparation for uprising and escape from the harsh conditions on the plantations. Keeping in tradition, we practice the art in its entirety. We invoke and teach the importance or rhythm of the body and expression through voice and various percussion, and most importantly awareness of self; (defense, ability, pride)
