What is Capoeira
Capoeira is a Martial Science that was developed in Brasil by African Slaves over 500yrs ago to fight oppression. It is believed that the Slaves desguised this art as a dance to prevent the Slave-masters from discovering that the slaves could in fact physically defend themselves.
Capoeira was so well desguised with the instruments and music, the dance element and other assets that to this day it is still arguable whether Capoeira is a martial Art. The funny thing is the confusion is not only between non-Capoeira practitioners but Capoeristas(Capoeira practitioners)as well.
