About Capoeira

Capoeira is a martial art 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 fought. Capoeira is always played with a smile on face symbolizing that the capoeiristas are not afraid from the danger that is coming.Learn more
There are two main Capoeira styles – Capoeira Angola and Capoeira Regional. All Capoeira styles are played within a ring of people called Roda. This ring is usually formed by other Capoeira players, or just people interested in this martial art, clapping with hands and singing traditional Capoeira songs under the sound of Capoeira music.Learn more
As in other martial arts, Capoeira uses a ranking system for recognition of the capoeira students’ knowledge. The capoeira ranking is presented in a form of belt (cordão) based on the colors of the Brazilian flag and/or nickname (apelido). The ranking system appeared for the first time in Capoeira Regional and it has never been usedin Capoeira Angola.Learn more
In Capoeira, the main aim of the players is not to harm the opponent but to show skills and abilities.  The Capoeira Game (Jogo de Capoeira) is a physical conversation between two players performed by acrobatic and martial movements. The game happens in the Roda (pronounced “ho-da”) – a circle formed by people (in most cases capoeiristas) singing and clapping with hands under the sound of Capoeira music.Learn more
