About Brazilian Capoeira NY (Online)
What is Capoeira?

Capoeira is a Brazilian Martial Arts that combines elements of dance, acrobatics and music, and is sometimes referred to as a game.

Born in Brazil in the 16th century by the descendants of Western Africans and the indigenous populations in Brazil. Capoeira is known for quick and complex moves, using mainly power, speed, and leverage for a wide variety of kicks, spins, and highly mobile techniques.

Today, it is widely accepted that the origin of the word capoeira comes from the Tupi words Ka'a ( jungle ) e Puer ( it was ), referring to the areas of low vegetation in the Brazilian interior where fugitives slaves would hide. Practitioners of the art are called "capoeiristas."
