    This video documents the 2009 CECA Capoeira Encounter from the perspective of an American capoeira student. It uses photographs, text and video footage to present the viewer with an overview of the encounter. The video also offers viewers a deeper understanding of the traditional form of capoeira angola by introducing many of the important capoeira elders. The video concludes by highlighting some of the projects which use capoeira angola as a tool to empower communities and engage under-served youth.

    The Centro Esportivo de Capoeira Angola (CECA) was founded in the early 1940's by Mestre Pastinha, a capoeira master who today is known as the grandfather of Capoeira Angola. Today Mestre Pastinha's work is continued by Joao Pequeno's graduated students including Mestre Pe de Chumbo, Mestre Ciro Lima, Professor Zoinho and Professora Nani.
