What is Capoeira?
Capoeira is a martial art originating in Brazil that combines elements of fight, acrobatics, music, dance, and rituals in a very elegant and magnetic way. Performed by two people, it is often called a "game" that is played, not a fight. Capoeira is always played with a smile on face symbolizing that the capoeiristas are not afraid from the danger that is coming.
