Sports

Capoeira

Offering Virtual Classes: Visit their website to sign up!

Capoeira (pronounced ka-poo-eyh-da) is an AFRO-Brazilian martial art form that incorporated acrobatics, dance, percussion and songs in a rhythmic dialogue of body, mind and spirit. It is a communal game in which two opponents play each other inside a circle, formed by other players who create rhythm for the game by clapping, singing and playing traditional handmade instruments. The two "capoeiristas" play a game together using capoeira movements, camouflaging self-defense kicks with playful acrobatics and dance-like moves spontaneously creating a strategy to fool the other player and perhaps work together to build a beautiful, harmonic and naturally flowing game.
