Capoeira is one of those sports that’s not big in our country, however, it has great potential to grow. Many people still do not understand what exactly it is and how they can benefit from taking it up as a sport or extra mural activity.

What Is Capoeira?

Capoeira is originally from Brazil and was invented by Africans who were enslaved in there. This form of martial arts has elements of acrobatics with touches of yoga as a form of dance and fighting art.

Why is Capoeira Just What You Need?

This form of martial arts allows you to learn about your body and how you can defend yourself. It allows you to move at a slow pace, almost like smooth dancing. Eventually, you get to a point where you can concentrate your muscles and build strength through your movement and focus your balance.

Who Can Do It?

Anyone can do it. Just like you don’t need to be French to eat French toast, you don’t need to be Brazilian to do Capoeira!
