born of oppression and slavery 400 year ago. As the slaves became aware that their
conditions were irreversible, that they were intended to be an involuntary work
force forever, they began to run away to the mountains where the palm trees were
in abundance and they could hide.
An African community was born and the place
was named Palmares.
In this community rival tribes joined forces teaching each
Religion, Dance, Rituals, Games etc.
The result of this rich cultural fusion
was the birth of the earliest forms of Capoeira.
Even the very experienced and well armed soldiers,
the “Slave Hunters”, were unable to capture them. Capoeira was
the key element for the slaves,
a system of fighting with very FAST AND TRICKY movements the slaves caused considerable
damage to the white man.
