The game is competed between two athletes playing according to the style required by the rhythm of the musical instruments. The sport doesn’t focus on knocking down the opponent rather it emphasizes skill. Capoeiristas often prefer to allow the opponent to recover and get back into the game.
The game of Capoeira finishes when one of the athletes decide to leave or call the end of the game or when any other capoeirista interrupts the match to start playing either with one of the current athletes or with any other capoeirista.
Music is an integral part of the sport which sets the style and tempo that is to be played within the roda. The Capoeira music is formed by singing and instruments which are arranged in a row formed by three berimbaus, two pandeiros, three atabaques, one agogo and one ganza. This format of the instruments may vary based on the capoeira group’s traditions and the style of roda.
