Capoeira? No, I had never heard of it either, till I came across this at the Guardian:

Jewish brothers perform capoeira in Jerusalem

The ultra-orthodox Jewish Hayat brothers perform capoeira in Jerusalem – a Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance, acrobatics and music. The brothers work to promote the martial art in the ultra-orthodox community in Israel

Anything that portrays Jews – perhaps, especially orthodox Jews – not in a negative way, is warmly welcomed. Shame it’s so rare at the ironically named Guardian.
