Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art developed by enslaved Africans centuries ago. It combines fighting with dance, play, theatre, rhythms and music. Capoeira exercises help to develop balance, resistance, and motor coordination. Practicing capoeira also means learning to sing its songs and to play its instruments, which provide the background and atmosphere to play in the circle. Because of this fascinating combination of physical activity and Afro-Brazilian culture, capoeira has been winning followers all over the UK since the 1990s. Capoeira societies are active at many UK universities.
