Capoeira defies easy categorization. The singular Brazilian art form combines the dexterity of gymnastics, the powerful strikes of martial arts, and the rhythmic pulse of dance. Developed during Brazil's colonial days by African slaves, the fighting style was passed down in secret for generations, its dazzling kicks and hypnotic feints hidden away. Today, things have changed. Capoeira is now celebrated as one of Brazil's most recognized cultural exports, on the list with samba and the graceful play of Pelé. Capoeira Aché Brasil Academy has been Vancouver's preeminent capoeira outpost for more than 20 years. The organization hosts 30 classes a week, during which students share in Brazilian culture by learning capoeira themselves. In addition to communing with Brazilian heritage, students also reap personal benefits; capoeira practice helps boost strength, agility, and coordination, and can even lower stress levels.
