Abstract: Capoeira is a Brazilian art form that combines elements of martial arts, sports, and dance. The aim of this study was to examinethe acute cardiovascular responses (ACR) of three main rhythms of capoeira: Angola, Banguela, and São Bento. Thirty subjects participated in this study. These subjects were enrolled in an advanced capoeira class. Before the tests, subjects were kept 10 min at rest to ensure basal values regarding the cardiovascular parameters: arterial blood pressure (systolic and diastolic, SBP and DBP, respectively), heart rate (HR) and double product (DP). Subjects in pairs of the same genderwere randomly assigned to the rhythms Angola, Banguela, and São Bentowith a 1 wk interval between the tests. Each rhythm had duration of 3min and all subjects were encouraged to develop their maximum performance during the test. After the tests, SBP, DBP, HR, and DP were determined. The findings suggest that capoeira can be used as an effective activity for promoting physical health.
