Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian martial art that incorporates dance and game elements. In the game, participants form a circle called a roda and alternate roles playing instruments, singing, and sparring with partners within the circle.

Movements include acrobatic movements and martial arts moves such as kicks, blocks, and feints. The aim for each player within the circle is to not be knocked to the floor by the other player's moves.
