Photographer's Note

First of all I really need to thanks, Romain (Green) a Member who told us what this is called with a very informative note. Therefore, I've quoted what he said here:

"This is call Capoeira. It is true to call it a martial art but it is also a dance.

The Capoeira take it roots from Africa. Its origins take place in Brasil with arrival of the first Bantu slave. Capoeira has devellopped a technique that merged ancestral rythm and physical fighting. It was disguised as a dance when portuguese slaveholder forbiden any the practice of any kind of martial art among the slaves. Those who will go against that rule were killed immediatly just like one would kill a dog infected by rabies.

Slave rebel would organise fight in an open area in the deep forest of Brasil. In this area would grow some grass called capoeira."
