The UAlbany Capoeira Club Capoeira is an afro-brazilian martial art and game which involves circular kicks and acrobatic dodges. Capoeiristas (people who do Capoeira) refer to 'sparring' as 'playing the game of capoeira'. It is usually played in a circle of one's comrades who are clapping and singing in rhythm to the instruments and lead singer of the playing circle. Classes are free, but members are asked to attend consistently. Contact:
