The final chapter. Thanks for all the kind words about this mini-series. This is part 3 of the 3 part series summarizing the amazing Biography of Mestre Suassuna by  M. Boca Rica.

I want to thank M. Boca Rica again for writing this book and for distributing it. If you’re ever looking for Capoeira in Barcelona, Spain,  this is the man to go to.

If you haven’t seen the first part, here is a link. I encourage you to see the first part and the second before watching part 3. This final chapter looks at the 1970’s onwards, including the creation of Miudinho, CDO, and Capoeirando. Enjoy.



Mestre Suassuna is one of the biggest living legends in Capoeira today. His style, students, music, and great personality have brought many to him. He is the creator of Cordao de Ouro one of the largest groups around the world, known for their high quality practitioners and super swaggy movement. This biography is my small contribution to being some light to this awesome figure
