Product Description

About the Author

Mestre Ricardo Cachorro holds a red-cord graduation from Grupo Bantus de Capoeira at Morro do Pavão e Pavãozinho—poverty-stricken slums in the middle of rich suburbs of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He was the first Master of the YMCA Capoeira Group in Governor's Island in 1975. The following year, he became a certified Mestre from the first federation of capoeira of Rio de Janeiro and in the same year he introduced capoeira in a live TV show filmed in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, sponsored by the local YMCA. In the early 1970s the author joined the Olympic gymnastics team of Rio de Janeiro's Fluminense Football Club, where he specialized in floor exercises with special focus on acrobatic body mechanics.

A delightful surprise! Dec 7 2012
By Benjamin Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I enjoyed very much this book. It is full of interesting historical information. I wonder if the first chapter, First Came 12 Ships, is a true story ... The "real cradle" of capoeira is well explained and makes a lot of sense to me. A fascinating book, beautifully written.
