Maculele Capoeira London at Paddington Arts part of Maculele Capoeira London

apoeira is an Afro-Brazilian art form that combines elements of martial arts, music, and dance. It was created in Brazil by slaves brought from Africa, especially from present day Angola some time after the 16th century. It was developed in the region of Quilombo dos Palmares, located in the actual Brazilian state of Alagoas and has great influence on the Afro-Brazilian generations, with strong presence at the actual states of Bahia, Pernambuco and Rio de Janeiro

Participants form a roda, or circle, and take turns either playing musical instruments, singing, or ritually sparring in pairs in the center of the circle. The sparring is marked by fluid acrobatic play, feints, and extensive use of sweeps, kicks, and headbutts.

The name 'Capoeira' originated as a derisive term used by slave owners to refer to the displays as chicken fights. Another claim is that the word "Capoeira" is derived from the native-american language Tupi-Guarani words ka ("leaf", "plant") and pura (past aspect marker), meaning "formerly a forest".

Currently Professor Je is teaching in South London: in Elephant and Castle, Walworth Road, Purley and Croydon. In north London Professor Je teaches in Camden Town.
