Traditionally, Capoeira is used as a form of play in the so-called "Roda" (Portuguese for "circle"). The Roda consists of a circle of capoeiristas and musicians. The rhythm is created by singing together, clapping and instrumental accompaniment (mountain construction with Coxixi, Atabaque, Pandeiro and Agogô). Always two capoeiristas fight or fight. Playing in the Roda. Capoeira uses the term "game" for a fight. A roda is influenced by communal feeling, accompanied by song, instruments and the archaic force inherent in the capoeira.

Once a month. Normalaweiser on the first Saturday of the month. We organize a roda in Hiena Capoeira Academy. To welcome you and so that all capoeira players can get to know each other and exchange ideas among themselves.
