Capoeira is a Brazilian fight-dance, game, and martial art created by enslaved Africans during the 19th Century. Capoeira mixes music with one on one combat, and is an excellent way to get really fit.

Popularity
Since its introduction into Great Britain, Capoeira has consistently gained in popularity. Partially due to its provision of a total body workout, while being distracted from the hard graft by lively song and music.

Location
Capoeira groups can found in many gyms and community centres around the country.

Ability
Capoeira gives you a total body workout, often requiring you to balance on one hand or leg, which will enhance co-ordination and reflexes. As mind and body work together your cardiovascular system is called into play, and your stamina will increase.

Description
Participants take it in turn to spa in pairs, surrounded by the remainder of the group who play music, clap and sing. Setting the tempo for the joust. Capoeira does not focus on injuring the opponent. Rather, it emphasizes skill. Capoeiristas often prefer to show the movement without completing it, enforcing their superiority in the ring. If an opponent cannot dodge a slow attack, there is no reason to use a faster one. Each attack gives players a chance to practice an evasive technique.

Dedication
Capoeira is not a sport you can master by attending one or two classes. Less a form of exercise, more an art form, that takes years to master, and usually around 12 months of regular attending classes before you are ready for a basic grading.
