Capoeira Angola Center of Mestre Joao Grande

Capoeira Angola is a form of African martial arts, which took its roots in the heart of Brazil during the enslavement period. Set to rhythmic music played on the Berimbau, Capoeira is characterized by quick, low-to-the-ground movements that begin with a game called the Ginga. The object of Capoeira is to suggest playfulness and vulnerability to an adversary, while being in complete control of the situation. At the Capoeira Angola Center, the tradition of mastering the philosophy and movement, along with learning to play the music and sing the songs of the art, is carried on by the legendary Mestre Joao Grande.
