Capoeira is a movement form that was originally developed among Brazilians of African descent as a way to fight injustice and oppression. Developed by slaves during the 1700's, the philosophy behind Capoeira stresses freedom and education. Capoeira is a martial art style that also uses elements of dance and gymnastics, beautifully creating a synthesis of all three.
Music and percussion accompany the art form, and movements often include kicks, cartwheels, and even flips. Capoeira is beauty, tradition, and it holds profound importance in the history of Brazil.
Capoeira brings together people from all ages, backgrounds, culture, and gender to be creative through the arts. Capoeira effectively teaches people the value of respect, discipline, friendship, and community.
