Seems every gymnastics club I visit lately has athletes training Capoera (Capoeira).
Kyle Shewfelt, Olympic Floor champion 2004, considered adding Capoeira elements to his routine.
Dozens of video games, TV commercials and films include Capoeira movements.
So what is Capoeira?
It’s a Brazilian martial art developed initially by African slaves. It’s interesting to coaches because it includes extreme acrobatic elements too difficult for gymnasts! One arm handstand spins, for example.
Good Capoeristas often also breakdance & take their acrobatics to the street.
There are plenty of video clips tagged with Capoera on YouTube.
