Capoeira was developed over 400 years ago in Brazil by the slaves as a means of self defense. It’s elements of ritualized combat weave together an intricate dialogue of movements combined with aspects of dance, acrobatics, music, and martial arts. Capoeira transcends all the barriers of age, gender, and ethnic background and creates a strong sense of community. It also develops discipline, self-confidence, and helps open one’s mind to another culture giving a deeper world-wide perspective. That’s why is Capoeira good for Arizona State University students. It can really enhance a student’s abilities, mentally, physically, spiritually and more!
