Break time from the roda
Capoeiristas take a breather in between duels. The Afro-Brazilian martial art that they practice inside the neighborhood community center is a blend of fighting and dancing, with duels performed to live music inside a human circle called a roda.

What I can say to my family, and my community, is that the most important thing is love, not money. Sometimes they say that they donít visit us because they have nothing to give us. We need love, not things. Even with money you can still feel alone inside.
