Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art that combines fight moves, dance, acrobatics and music with Afro-Brazilian culture. It was developed by African slaves who were taken to Brazil in the 16th Century. Forbidden to engage in physical combat with one another slaves developed Capoeira, it was disguised as a dance.
Capoeira is used widely in schools in Brazil and Capoeira projects internationally are even run in refugee camps. It has proven to be the perfect anti-bullyng activity in Brazil. Unlike many martial arts, where the goal is to subdue your opponent, the players’ goal is to ‘talk’ to each other using their movements, asking questions with kicks and answering with dodges.
