Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian martial art that mixes dance and combat, it was created during the time of slavery in Brazil.

It is very difficult to describe in detail the birth of this Brazilian martial art since it was born in hiding and therefore left almost no trace to tell its story, this fighting sport has its origins in the African struggle. Capoeira-like forms are found in most countries affected by colonization.

Capoeira is mainly organized in groups, which are composed of academies and schools all over the world, such as Ginga mundo, Senzala, Axé, Abada, etc.

Capoeira is practiced in the roda, it is the circle formed by the capoeirists during the confrontations which are called jogos, the Ginga is the basic movement of the Capoeira which one can see in the Capoeira rodas where one finds musicians with their instruments (Berimbau, pandeiro, atabaque, agogo) to give rhythm to the fight of capoeira. On November 26, 2014 the capoeira roda was declared intangible heritage of humanity.

Capoeirists can practice two distinct styles of Capoeira : Angola and Regional.

Capoeira Angola is the traditional capoeira as it was named by Master Pastinha who wanted to preserve the ancestral customs.

The Capoeira Regional, it was created by Master Bimba who wanted to free this art from what could make it less effective in combat.
