What Is Capoeira?

     Capoeira Is a Diverse Combination of martial arts, game, music, dance and acrobatics that was created sometime by the African slaves in Brazil sometime after the sixteenth Century.

 

    When playing Capoeira, Participants form a circle(roda) and take turns playing traditional African Instruments (such as the Berimbau), singing, or sparring in pairs in the centre of the circle.
