Capoeira History


CAPOEIRA (Ka-po-era) is a form of martial art that combines self-defense with music and acrobatics. It was developed in Brazil over 400 years ago. The emerging school of thought is that Capoeira developed in the streets of Brazil after the Abolition of 1888 by those who were once slaves.

The Basics


The basic stance of Capoeira is the ginga. Everything originates from this movement. The ginga is a dynamic stance where one moves from a lunge position on one side, to a lunge position on the other side. The hands are used to maintain balance as well as protect the face from any hand strikes.

The Music


Music is as equally important to the game as the movements, if not more. The focal point of any game is the orchestra, which usually consists of five instruments: the atabaque (drum), three berimbaus (bow-shaped attached by a string loop to a gourd) and a pandeiro (tambourine).
