Capoeira is all of these things, and more!
Capoeira is different from any other martial art. It was created five hundred years ago by African slaves to fight the oppression, in Brazil. A fight combined with acrobatics and music, mixed with cultural expression. This form of Martial Art offers immense benefits for the body. It helps in toning and strengthening quadriceps, buttocks and hamstrings while performing the routines as a dance. Capoeira was a strictly forbidden practice back in the 18th century and could get you serious punishment. Yet it has survived, and is now being practiced all over the world.
