Capoeira is a “young” martial art from Brazil, which focuses on surviving and living in an oppressive environment. It is not necessary to be the strongest or have the best techniques at your disposal. Being smart and cunning are the more important elements in this sport. A capoeirista strives to be surprising in attack and preferably to “disappear” without contact in defense. But Capoeira goes beyond the fight. Quality of life also matters. Like a cat, the capoeirista maneuvers through life and often recognizes opportunities like no other to make live more enjoyable and interesting. Dance, music and theater are no strangers to a capoeirista.
