Capoeira from Best Martial Arts

Capoeira 1 100x100

It is believed that capoeira was born in Brazil in the 16th century, during its colonization. Legend says that this skill was invented by African slaves in the pursuit of freedom. Since they were forbidden to fight, they disguised their fighting technique by the dance. Its strong African roots are manifested through music, movement and symbolism. It requires great fitness and good physical condition. Capoeira is performed in a human circle by two participants and it is followed by musical instruments, such as berumbaoa and drums. The strikes are commonly acted out, so that the struggle does not focus on hurting the opponent, but emphasizes skill.
