What is Capoeira?

Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian martial art form. It was created in Brazil over 500 years ago as a fusion of cultures, rituals and traditions during the time of slavery. As Capoeira changed over time, it was disguised as a dance and then used as a tool to help free slaves from their oppressors.  Today, Capoeira is considered one of Brazil’s national sports and is practiced in almost every country around the world.
