Capoeira includes cartwheels, spinning, kicking and even flips performed almost like a dance sequence. In Capoeira we do not just use flips to please the audience, they have a purpose in the game. Also known as floreios (flourish pronounced flor-a-yos), these are movements with the purpose to confuse, trick, or deceive the other player. Floreios also make Capoeira more beautiful, unpredictable and fun.
