Plus One Defense Systems, West Hartford, CT
This is a Brazilian style with African roots that utilizes a lot of ground maneuvers, aerial work, and dance type motions. It is a martial art that utilizes dance and acrobatics as its medium. The system is absolutely beautiful.
It is worthy to note that we have a lot of people inquire about Capoeira and say, “It looks beautiful, but I can’t do that.” The above video is a great example of the style. The practitioners in the video have been studying for many years. When you begin in Capoeira, you start with the basics. It is a wonderful style, and people of all shapes, sizes, and ability should try it if they want to. Give it a shot, you will be surprised what you can do when the learning process is broken down.
