Capoeira classes by Mitsuhiko Hara

What is Capoeira

It is a Brazilian traditional dance which was registered as UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage.

Capoeira have been developed around the 16th century by African slaves who were brought to Brazil.
In Capoeira, people enjoy to have communication with others and showing off their skills to each other with song and music. Although capoeira is a martial art, it does not directly attack to the opponent, so no one is hurt. There are no referees to determine who wins or loses, so anyone can enjoy capoeira.
