        interressant et captivant

        ce livre fait partie selon moi des meilleurs ouvrages sur le sujet. ne cherchez pas d'explications de techniques puisqu'il n'y en a pas. ce livre traite principalement de l'âme de la capoeira et s'attache surtout sur 3 points, l'historique, la philosophie capoeirista, ainsi que les manières de développer sa maitrise des mouvements. ce livre s'adresse donc à celui ou celle ayant envie d'enrichir sa connaissance en capoeira (car ce livre s'adresse surtout à ceux qui s'adonnent à ce fabuleux art martial), et pour cause il a tout de meme été écrit par un élève du mestre Bimba très connu de tout capoeirista qui se respecte. Je le conseille vivement à tous ceux ayant envie de comprendre réellement l'ESPRIT CAPOEIRA.
