The techniques presented here are very unique and deceptive. Developed by the leaders of the New York branch, the moves bring together their comprehensive knowledge of traditional Capoeira techniques and other indigenous Brazilian martial arts. Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art created in the 1500s by African slaves. The slaves were brought to Brazil to work on sugar cane plantations. For obvious reasons, the slave holders would not allow their captives to practice any fighting techniques that they had learned in Africa. To overcome this restriction, the slaves practiced the fighting moves and techniques disguising them as dances. They continued to work on these fighting techniques in order to keep them fine-tuned for their main goal and dream - escape from slavery! Even after slavery was abolished in Brazil in 1888, Capoeira remained illegal. In 1890 the president of Brazil signed a bill outlawing Capoeira nationwide, with severe punishment for those caught practicing the art. In spite of the ban, a new style of Capoeira was born in Brazil incorporating the African martial art of Batoki, Brazilian jiu jitsu, and boxing from Angola. It took until 1937 for the art to be legalized in its native country. Today, Capoeira is a national sport in Brazil. The popularity of Capoeira continues to grow rapidly on a worldwide basis.
