Afro – Brazilian Martial Arts

Capoeira
Capoeira is a martial art that combines elements of fight, acrobatics, music, dance and rituals in a very elegant and magnetic way. Performed by two people, it is often called a “game” that is played, not fought. Capoeira is always played with a smile on face symbolizing that the capoeiristas are not afraid from the danger that is coming. The uniqueness of Capoeira will give your body physical strength, power and flexibility and your mind self-confidence, concentration, courage and creativity. The only way to truly understand the magnetism of Capoeira is to see it and try it yourself.
