capoeira (IPA ka.pu. ej. ) is an AfroBrazilian blend of martial art, game, and dance created by enslaved Africans in Brazil during the 16th Century.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation search Capoeira
Capoeira or the Dance of War by Johann Moritz Rugendas , 1825, published 1835 Focus Acrobatic, Kicking Country of origin Brazil Famous practitioners Mestre Bimba Mestre Pastinha Mestre Jo£o Grande Mestre Jo£o Pequeno Olympic Sport No Capoeira IPA [ka.pu.ˈej.ɾɐ] ) is an Afro-Brazilian blend of martial art game , and dance created by enslaved Africans in Brazil during the 16th Century. Participants form a roda (circle) and take turns playing instruments, singing, and sparring in pairs in the center of the circle. The game is marked by fluid acrobatic play, feints , and extensive use of groundwork, as well as sweeps, kicks, and headbutts . Less frequently-used techniques include elbow-strikes, slaps, punches, and body-throws. Capoeira has evolved from the mother form, now referred to as capoeira angola , and now includes two other forms known as capoeira regional and the ever-evolving capoeira contempor¢nea

Capoeira News:
Capoeira – a dangerous dance A circle of people playing drums and singing, and in the middle of the circle there are people dancing softly but swiftly. The first impression of the Brazilian capoeira is that it must be a ritual of some sort. And in fact that is not far from the truth. But behind those soft movements, which look like peaceful ritual dancing, lies a lethal form of martial art.

Capoeira Greetings and welcome to my Capoeira page. First alittle about myself and why this page was created. Ever since i saw the Jean Claude Van Damme movie, "The Quest" i have been interessted in this form of dance/martial art that is Capoeira. I think the reason i got so overwhelmed by it is the acrobatic manouvers involved. Handstands and backflips, i know i am impressed. And when i played Tekken 3 and saw the character Eddy i was amazed! I plan to start practicing Capoeira after summer. I recently bought the B-movie "Only the strong" starring marc dacascos only because it is about Capoeira. I havn't come across any other films about Capoeira, but if you know about movies and/or documentaries about Capoeira, please let me know. Well, i hope you enjoy this page and take time to appreciate the time and effort i have spend creating this page. Feel free to email me if you have something to add to this page, like pictures etc. Comments and suggestions are also welcome. What is Capoeira?

Capoeira Masters in Salvador da Bahia, Brazil
Capoeira has moved from the senzalas and quilombos of Brazil to New York, Berlin, Australia, and just about every place in between. But Bahia is capoeira's cradle, and the following is a list of masters teaching here now, and their provenance. Curio's Academy in Pelourinho. Very cool! practices) . The telephone number there is 321-0396. There's also a cell phone: 9963-3562. Mestre Nô (Norival Moreira de Oliveira) Mestre Nô Mestre Bamba (Rubens Costa Silva) Mestre Bamba teaches at Bimba's academy in Pelourinho, in the original space. Bamba has put the fight back into capoeira, which was where it started in the first place, and his rodas can be rough. (If you are a beginner, don't worry; you won't get beaten up. If you are strong (and a guy) and know what you're doing, get ready to rumble.) Of course the rodas can be elegant and beautful as well, exhibiting Bimba's penchant for beautiful, well-controlled moves. There's a lot of singing and energy at the academy. The training system is you (non-locals) pay seventy reais for ten days of training. That comes to less than three dollars per day, so although it's more than at some other places you'd have to be really cheap to complain too much. For this you train, at your own discretion, up to three hours per day any time Monday through Friday from 9 a.m to noon and/or from 3 p.m. until 8 p.m; Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. You choose what you want to train. Rodas are Tuesdays and Fridays from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m.
