Capoeira combines martial arts, dance, and acrobatics to tell the story of the enslaved Africans who were brought to Brazil. In this episode of The Shape Shift—an original series from BESE and Smartwater that explores the intersection of sports, culture, and history—we meet Jessica Carla De Lima, the brown belt Capoeirista who has dedicated the past 21-years of her life to practicing the ancient art form.
