Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art in which two opponents or capoeiristas spar against a backdrop of music within a circle; the circle is created by other capoeiristas, who surround the two players, and who also sing, clap, and play several musical instruments to imbue the circle and the sparring opponents with energy, emotion, and instruction. The game / sparring in this art focuses on overpowering the opponent with highly precise sweeps, gymnastics, THROW-DOWNS, kicks, agility, and speed. students rarely employ hand strikes and instead use various dodging techniques to escape attacks.
