Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian art form that combines elements of martial arts, music, and dance. Participants form a circle, and take turns either playing musical instruments, singing, or ritually sparring in pairs in the center of the circle. The sparring is marked by fluid acrobatic play, feints, takedowns, and extensive use of leg sweeps, kicks, and headbutts.
