Corpus Christi Brazilian Capoeira
Slaves and indigenous peoples of Brazil were once forbidden from learning to fight by the government. So, they began to coach martial training within a blend of African and Brazilian dance, and secretly transformed themselves into warriors. This tradition came to be known as capoeira and formed a central social activity for people to come together, dance, and train. Corpus Christi Brazilian Capoeira's instructors teach a traditional form of the art, with students learning both the martial aspects and acrobatics as they play music, sing, and dance.
