Capoeira: Fly Away Beetle

WITHIN THE FIGHT, SOME LEARN TO DANCE.
OUT OF NECESSITY ONE IS THROWN INTO THE FIGHT – WITHIN THE FIGHT ONE LEARNS TO DANCE.
Three world renowned masters tell of the blood and treachery of Capoeira in its early days after slavery. A young man gets off the ghetto streets of Salvador Brazil and redeems his life by teaching Capoeira to other troubled youths. In their stories the surprising history and essential truth of Capoeira as a modern self defense art form is revealed.
