Mobility & Conditioning
Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance, acrobatics, and music. It is known for its acrobatic and complex maneuvers, often involving hands on the ground and inverted kicks.
It emphasizes flowing movements rather than fixed stances; the ginga, a rocking step, is usually the focal point of the technique. More than just a martial art, it is deeply rooted in the formation of Brazil and helps to spread their language, culture and history.
