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 songs. 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.

The meetings are completely open, as practice sessions – we hope to see new people who want to learn to juggle, amateurs who want to practice or learn new tips, and professionals who just want to have a good time. The meetings are unstructured- and work as an open, group practice.

We encourage anyone and everyone to meet us at Trolley Square, as our practice sessions are open to everyone… whether you are a spectator or just hoping to join in the fun and learn to juggle!
