Capoeira Training (Martial Arts) • $20.00

Capoeira (ka-pu-wear-ah ) was said to be derived from the dance known as N'golo created as a ritual dance between African Bantu tribes for a man who has come of age to take a wife without paying a dowry to the father of the bride. The warriors would challenge each other using kicks, sweeps, strikes and headbutts to gain control and defeat their opponent. As the art was more developed in Brazil through the vehicle of slavery the name Capoeira came from the Native Indian tribes using the word defining a clearing in the forest (brushwood clearing) Since Africans seemed to be the only ones who played this game, it became synonimus with African presence of resistance. After the abolishement of slavery on May 13, 1888 (Golden Law), and after Capoeira's many bouts with the community known as a vagabond art, it was outlaw on October 11 1890.
