Capoeira is an exuberant martial art that combines high energy rhythms with exciting acrobatic movements. The art was created by Afro-Brazilians slaves during Brazil's colonial period. Because they were not allowed to practice any form of self-defense nor to use weapons, enslaved Afro-Brazilians disguised their training to look like a dance.
