Martial Arts Festival

Capoeira, Martial Arts, Afro-Brazilian, Salt Lake City, Winter Batizado, Utah

Capoeira is a unique and vibrant Afro-Brazilian martial art that cultivates movement, culture, music, and philosophy. Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian martial art that includes elements of physical and mental strength, beauty, and power. M. Jamaika often refers to capoeira as a “complete martial art” in that it encompasses a vast spectrum of movement and culture; it incorporates kicks, ground movements, self-defense, acrobatics, music, and tradition.

It is played in a circle, or roda, with two members engaging in various attacks and defenses while maintaining a melodic fluidity. These movements are driven by the rhythms emanating from the roda’s instruments and vocal song. Capoeira was created by African slaves in Brazil over 500 years ago, and through Mestre Bimba and others, has since become a recognized art form. Capoeira can be done by anyone of any age or size and its benefits are evident in all who take it on. It is a beautiful expression, which is best understood through active experience.
