MESTRE PASTINHA

In 1942, Mestre Pastinha opened the first capoeira Angola school, the Centro Esportivo de Capoeira Angola, located in Bahia. He had his students wear black pants and yellow t-shirts, the same color of the “Ypiranga Futebol Clube,” his favorite soccer team. Most Angola schools since then follow in this tradition, having their students wear yellow capoeira t-shirts, although more recently each club has begun to adopt more personalised uniforms.

Together, Mestre Bimba and Mestre Pastinha are generally seen as the fathers of modern capoeira regional and capoeira Angola respectively. (credits: Wikipedia)

MESTRE BIMBA

Mestre Bimba

In 1937, Mestre Bimba was invited to demonstrate his art in front of president GetĂșlio Vargas. After this performance, he was given permission to open the first capoeira school in Brazil. Since that time, capoeira has been officially recognized as a national sport, and has spread around the world. Mestre Bimba’s systematization and teaching of capoeira made a tremendous contribution to the capoeira community.
