Capoeira (ka-po-eh-rah) is a dance/martial art developed by African Slaves in Brazil. Called the art of survival and chess for the body, it is a powerful and transformational art form. In this talk, I will share background on the art, as well as lessons learned from 11 years training and teaching capoeira to students ranging from suburban grandmas to gang members.
