More than a combat move, the headstand requires admirable control, strength and technical ability. An avid admirer of Capoeira martial art, Rodrigo Saramago expertly conveys the force, strength and velocity of a movement that distinguishes this unique form of martial art.
Capoeira is a form of martial art developed by slaves in Brazil. Specialized movements were disguised as a form of dance to avoid suspicion from oppressors. It is said that Capoeira was first used in battle in the slave revolt at Quilombo dos Palmares.
Titled "Parada de cabeça" in Portuguese.
