Today children in Year 3 took part in an Afro-Brazilian martial art workshop. Capoeira originates in the slave huts of Brazil when the slaves communicated with their bodies and developed a culture of fighting back against their captors. The movements are soft and dance-like. Children who are interested in finding out more about Capoeira could visit the World Museum on Saturday mornings at 10.30 for a free workshop. Remember boys and girls be careful if you try this at home!!!
