While singing in Portuguese,with live music accompaniment, participants ‘play’ capoeira allowing individuals and groups to: give and get respect, develop self-discipline, strengthen patience, increase physical stamina, become a valued member of a community/group, feel strong, build trust, get motivated and enhance teamwork.
