Capoeira History:
Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance, acrobatics and music. It was developed by enslaved Africans in Brazil at the beginning of the 16th century.
They hid their martial arts training from enslavers by disguising it as a dance. Capoeira training allowed groups of slaves to rise up against their slave masters and retake their freedom.
In modern times, Capoeira has evolved into a unique and powerful martial art that is practiced all over the world
