An Introduction to Capoeira

Capoeira (pronounced ca-po-ei-ra) is a combination of martial arts, music and dance. This history of Capoeira can be traced back to when the first slaves from Africa were brought to Brazil and whilst here the art of Capoeira was developed. Capoeira differs to other martial arts due to the fluidity in the Capoeiristas movements whilst playing. However it cannot be classed as solely a ‘dance’ as there are many different kicks and takedowns performed and when used in a defensive manner could prove to be very deadly. Furthermore it is also difficult to class Capoeria solely as a martial-art as generally the method of teaching hardly involves practicing stiff/rigid movements but various techniques which are generally demonstrated when playing with others.

A Brief History of Grupo Muzenza

‘Grupo Muzenza de Capoeira’ was founded on the 5th of May 1972 by Paulo Sergio da Silva (Mestre Paulao), who came from Mintirinha’s (Luis Americo da Silva) group Capoarte de Obaluae.

In October 1975, Mestre Burgues (Antonio Carlos de Menezes) arrived at Curitiba – Parana. Having taught in the neighbourhoods of Meier and Madureira in Rio de Janeiro, Mestre Burgues decided to create a new branch of Grupo Muzenza in the south of Brazil, establishing and developing a methodology and philosophy of his own, he turned to the roots of Capoeira and began by teaching amongst economically disadvantaged communities in clubs schools and academies.

Grupo Muzenza’s main purpose is to spread Capoeira, propagating its technical, philosophical and educational aspects as a form of cultural expression, a fight, a vocation and way of life. We continually emphasise the value of past Capoeira masters as respected representatives of this truly Brazilian cultural expression.

Grupo Muzenza has been presided over by Mestre Burgues since 1975
