Capoeira
2
What is Capoeira?
  • - (pronounced ka-poo-e-da) it is a style of
  • Brazilian martial art combined with dance that
  • utilizes singing and instrumental music.

3
Where did Capoeira originate?
  • Roughly 400 hundred years ago, it was created by
    African slaves in Brazil brought over by
    Portuguese colonists.

4
How did Capoeira survive?
This ritual served as an expression of
resistance and as a method of spiritual and
emotional empowerment. The cultures of enslaved
African, Brazilian indigenous people, and
Portuguese immigrants all contributed to this art
form.
5
Is Capoeira used to fight?
  • Modern Capoeira is more of a game rather than a
    fighting style, so members would be called
    players who play Capoeira.

6
How does it work?
  • Players will form a roda (pronounced ho-da)
    which is a circle in which the game is played.
    Players forming the roda are just as important as
    the players inside since they provide the rhythm
    and energy by clapping, singing, and playing
    instruments.

7
What are some basic movements?
  • Ginga
  • It is the first move that all players will learn.
  • It is the source for rhythm and momentum.

8
Compasso
  • It is a spin kick that uses your hind leg while
    doing the ginga.

9
Spins and Flips
  • After mastering the ginga, players will begin
    learning trickier movements that rely on
    acrobatics and balance.
