Capoeira

Capoeira and its benefits

Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian martial art that mixes elements of dance, music, fight, and acrobatics. It was created by the people from Angola in Brazil during slavery who were captured by the Portuguese and brought to Brazil to be slaves in the 1500s.

Like any martial art, Capoeira’s efficiency for self-defense depends on the skill level of the Capoeirista. When used well by an experienced player, Capoeira is extremely useful in a fight. Capoeira highly increases one’s ability to react quickly.

Capoeira is an art geared towards survival by any means possible.

These slaves created the earliest form of Capoeira to increase their chances of liberty and independence. They disguised the martial art and fighting techniques as a folk dance and when the slave masters were not looking, they would practice the self-defense aspect. When the slaves escaped, they fled to small villages which they formed called Quilombos (where escaped slaves go). Quilombos dos Palmares, was the most famous of the Quilomobos, which was lead by Zumbi.

On May 13th 1888 slavery was abolished in Brazil. The Brazilian government feared the ex-slaves would join forces and use Capoeira to revolt against the government therefore, a ban was put on Capoeira and anyone known practicing Capoeira would be sent to jail.

To keep the tradition of Capoeira alive, it needed to be practiced secretly and disguised as a dance. In their hidden places, they did their best to keep the tradition alive and by presenting it as an Art it became more accepted by society. Capoeiristas were known only by their nicknames, which made it more difficult for the police to identify and arrest them since their real identities were unknown.

Discover the

Benefits of Capoeira

Strength

Capoeira involves a lot of both upper and lower body movements that engage your core muscles and adds resistance leading to strength.

Coordination

With Capoeira you get to learn so many movements that are connected; dances, kicks, escapes, acrobatics, and non-ending sequences!

Balance

By learning moves like Handstands, Headstands and Flips you will gain an incredible ability of body balance (and mind)!

Flexibility

The exercises and routines will naturally lead to an increase in Flexibility. Just like with Yoga, you will get it even if you are not an expert.

Confidence

Not only will you be able to gain confidence after learning daring moves, but you will get that boost outside of the Capoeira world, everywhere you go!
