Capoeira is a martial art

Capoeira is a unique martial art created by african slaves about 500 years ago. It is a passion, a magic, a religion, a love!

It is known by quick and complex moves, using mainly power, speed, and leverage for a wide variety of kicks, spins, and highly mobile techniques; however there are several different styles and it would be difficult to explain it all.

You can learn Capoeira anywhere, however it is best to be educated in a Capoeira academy, headed by a Mestre. A Mestre is in the loosest sense an instructor, but they are in fact much more, and are responsible for not just technical teachings of Capoeira, but also its spirit, music and history.

Many words may be used to exprlain capoeira. Still neither of these words give the exact feeling and expression of Capoeira. The truth is that the only way to understand and learn about Capoeira is to watch a capoeira game (jogo capoeira) or simply watch a capoeirista showing his skills.
