are a group led by Master China, from Rio de Janeiro; some
of us from the group are brazilians passing a bit of our own
life experiences by practicing Capoeira, others belonging
to different ethnies and countries, adding to our group a
bit of their backgrounds and ideas and contributing for the
growth of this Martial Art. All with the same common goal:
to play, have fun and making an effort to preserve and understand
in more depth this Martial Art with so many variants and influences
through its history.
Capoeira is one of the finest manifestations of the brazilian
Master China's own words:
"An art form of the
African Negros, Capoeira was created in Brazil. Sustained
bythe need for life, it developed in the bush, with freedom
as the purpose.
First from captivity, then from the barriers imposed
by the Society, Capoeira survived, through suffering and hardship,
to become a feat which is today recognized as a self-defense,
a fight, a dance and a culture of the people.
In order to survive, people had to learn to dance within
their own struggle."
