The science of the art of capoeira

Narcelio's Capoeira Showreel

Mestre Poncianinho called him the video-game capoeirista, I spent 3 days tracking him down

Watch Contra Mestre Narcelio's full length capoeira showreel and see exactly what it means to be a capoeirista at this level. His unmatched agility, skill, speed and bravery are repute throughout the world of capoeira. He's the reason I travelled for two days crammed into flatbad trucks across sand roads swamped with torrential rains and remote villages skirting the Brazilian desert to end up in a shanty town on the outskirts of Fortaleza.

I then spent 3 days bussing around his favourite training haunts, places that got Mestre Espirro pretty angry when he realised the danger I had apparently been in. It was an exhausting trip but this incredible capoeira showreel makes it all worthwhile. Narcelio will blow your mind.

He's the bomb no? Tell us what you think in the comments.
