EP 10 : Mestre Nenel

“I really hope to meet at least part of the interests of the reader! I do make a point to stress that I am not and do not want to be the holder of the truth. I simply come to share a little of what I conceived from the practical and theoretical lessons that I experienced with my father. I am open to any criticism whatsoever, since they are also part of my growth and maturation in this trajectory of rescue, preservation and perpetuation of my father’s legacy. One thing I hear a lot is that my father created Regional so that it could be developed, and that’s true! But what I barley see is peaple doing it with awareness of the principles that were fundamental to my father. In this book, I want to pinpoint these fundamental issues that should govern every and any proposal based on the philosophy of Capoeira Regional.”-Mestre Nenel

“Minha Varanda…” – Refers to my home, the place I want to conquer, working with Capoeira.

“Meu Chapeu de Palha…” – Relates to chilling times after this conquest, I wish to have myself, my home.

“Minha Massape…” – Means the mud, hard to cross through, that I shall not forget, the hard times
