Capoeira Evolucao (2:30-3:20):
Capoeira is a martial art of Afro-Brazilian origin. It is distinguished by its incorporation of acrobatic and dance movements as well as the integration of music into its practice. A capoeira match or ‚Äújogo‚Äù takes place within a circle of players called a ‚Äúroda.‚Äù As members of the roda sing and play instruments, two players, called ‚Äúcapoeiristas,‚Äù enter and begin to spar. In the jogo, typically, there is as much emphasis on the style and expressiveness of the players as on their martial prowess. The majority of strikes involve the feet and blows are evaded rather than blocked. The result is a flowing, rhythmic and dynamic martial art.
