Capoeira, an Afro-Brazilian martial art, is a subtle blend of acrobatic dance and combat that requires flexibility and endurance.

Originally this martial art was practiced by slaves. To go unnoticed, the combat techniques of capoeira were mixed with dance movements.

Music and singing accompanying the acrobatic sequences, the masters did not suspect that the slaves were developing real methods of combat.
