    Welcome to Capoeira Besouro! Capoeira Besouro invites you to explore the Afro-Brazilian martial art of capoeira. Developed as a form of self-defense by the slaves in Brazil during the 17th century, capoeira is an art which combines self-defense, dance, and music. Through the practice of capoeira, students increase their flexibility, coordination, strength, balance, and self-confidence.
