Capoiera in Brazil


So when we visit each country we fund out one thing we can learn and add to our soon to be our book of travel.

Now in brazil we knew that while here we have to learn capoiera which is originated from Africa.

The slaves that where brought from Africa by the potuguese people created this capoiera..the slaves where not allowed to communicate to each other since the masters thought they are planning something so the capoiera was a dance and expression that the slaves used to communicate with each other. When brazil got independent capoiera was banned in the country.
And year later a capoiera Mastre  found a way to take capoiera to the government house and convince them.
So that’s when capoiera become a national organised passionate form of martial arts in brazil…it is filled with dance, and expression of love and drumming all on one single move.

Here are a few of our capoiera moments while in brazil
