2016 Brazilian Capoeira
Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance, music, and acrobatics. Developed in Brazil by Africans in the 16th century, Capoeira was a way of defending themselves from slave owners. It is known today for its quick and complex moves, using mainly power, speed, and leverage for leg sweeps.
