Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian martial art disguised as dance developed by Angolan slaves in Brazil during the colonial period. Because slaves were not permitted to arm themselves and fight, capoeira allowed them to train physically while giving the impression that they were merely entertaining themselves. Over time, the art of capoeira evolved from its traditional roots into a formal martial art. In 1932, Mestre Bimba founded the first official school of capoeira, and is known as the father of capoeira regional. Since then, capoeira has become the national sport of Brazil, and is taught and practiced throughtout the world.
