Disguised as dancing
African slaves in Brazil would practice this capoeria as a fighting style

^^^^ that’s one of the best pieces of information I’ve heard today

Black ingenuity is everlasting

It’s the reason it’s so acrobatic and requires the use of your legs more than anything. It would help slaves fight when they tried to escape and Capoira was created specifically so they could:

b.) Be able to fight even with their hands shackled.

It’s has a super neat history!
