Developed in the 1500’s by enslaved Africans in Brazil, Capoeira is a unique martial art form that blends self-defense techniques, acrobatics, dance-like movements and music into a martial art form. The capoeira game is played in a circle called a roda, where two capoeiristas engage in a spontaneous conversation of movements, corporal expression, and self-defense techniques (kicks, dodges, take-downs, etc) accompanied by graceful acrobatics and music. The capoeiristas emphasize on control of their movements, quick strategy and reaction to smoothly trick each other and conquer one another’s space.

Members price is $90 and non-Members $120.
