Be part of history – martial arts and dance
Harkening back to slave owning days of colonial Brazil, slaves developed an African influenced martial arts form disguised as dance. It was their way of developing a self defence system under the very eyes of their overlords. But it has evolved over the years to a growing and much sought after form of fitness. Capoeira!
