What is Capoeira

Capoeira (pronounced kah-poe-air-ah) is a martial art that combines the excitement and energy of music, dancing, fighting, gravity defying acrobatics and feats of strength and flexibility. Capoeira is a 400-year old Brazilian martial art born out of oppression and slavery whereby slaves had to disguise their training as recreational song and dance. Capoeira has played an important part in shaping the culture of Brazil. At Capoeira Malês, we play a modern form of capoeira, a fast-paced, fluid game known as Contemporânea. There are many different styles of capoeira, some are slow and theatrical, others are fast and artistic. Participants take turns sparring in pairs in the centre of a roda (circle), and also create the live music, which consists of playing Afro-Brazilian percussion instruments, clapping and call-and-response singing. Capoeira came to Canada in the early 1990s and today it can be found on every continent. There is a wealth of information available online for those interested in learning more about the history of capoeira. Capoeira continues to grow and gain recognition as a martial art and form of artistic expression.
