Overview: Capoeira is typically described as a Brazilian martial art that combines Afro-Brazilian dance with martial arts and acrobatics. However, this is only an approximation of the depth and breadth of the capoeira game and its deep history. The purpose of the Harvard Capoeira Regional Club is to promote physical fitness and to spread cultural knowledge of the Brazilian tradition of capoeira and the music that accompanies this martial art.
