Capoeira is Brazils fast and graceful Afro-Brazilian art form, which blends dance, martial arts, and acrobatics into one beautiful art like no other. The martial art was created by Africans brought to Brazil from many parts of Africa as a means of self-protection and as a way to fight for their own freedom. During its early years, Capoeira was disguised as a dance in order to be practiced openly. Today, Capoeira is widely known and practiced in more than 150 nations around the world.
