Brief Description Of Capoeira Capoeira is an art form hat involves movement, music, and elements of practical philosophy. One experiences the essence of capoeira by “playing” a physical game called jogo de capoeira (game of capoeira) or simply jogo. During this ritualized combat,two capoeiristas (players of capoeira) exchange movements of attack and defense in a constant flow while observing rituals and proper manners of the art. Both players attempt to control the space by confusing the opponent with feints and deceptive moves. During the jogo, the capoeiristas explore their strengths and weaknesses,fears and fatigue in a sometimes frustrating, but nevertheless enjoyable, challenging and constant process of personal expression,self-reflection and growth.

Professor Besouro Professor Cavalheiro Instructor Meninão About UCA The acronym UCA stands for “United Capoeira Association”. The UCA was born of Mestre Acordeon’s and Mestre Rã’s desire to create an organization in which they could work together with similar philosophical ideals while preserving their own identities. Mestre Rã (Cassio Martinho from Jundiaí, São Paulo, Brazil) worked with Mestre Acordeon from 1992 to 2006, when he moved back to Brazil and his school there. He remains a UCA mestre, along with Mestra Suelly, Mestre Galo, Mestre Calango and Mestre Amunka. Today, some of their students teach capoeira in different locations under the umbrella of the United Capoeira Association.
