Capoeira Beyond Brazil by Aniefri Essien
Book DescriptionEssien is not only an expert in capoeira, but a teacher who has had remarkable results teaching capoeira to at-risk youth and exploring the historical development of the form. Until recently, Brazilians dominated the market on capoeira books, yet the form has spread throughout the world over the last four decades. This expansion has introduced a host of new capoeira practitioners with varied lineages, techniques, and traditions. Exploring the art form's international evolution held in the context of its rich history, Essien's book brings an international, political perspective to capoeira.Readers experience capoeira in its complete historical context as written by a non-Brazilian authority, including technical instruction, rich and critical history, an exploration of capoeira programmes for at-risk youth, and a socio-cultural consideration of the effects internationalization has had on this form. Realities of the capoeira community, both positive and negative, are discussed, directly illustrating principles that should be embraced, as well as the established norms in practice and instruction that are well worth questioning. Uniquely, the book uses an educational programme developed expressly for at-risk youth in Oakland, California, to articulate the empowering aspects of capoeira and the ways in which martial arts can be used to foster self-reliance and confidence in the individual, as well as a commitment to community development.
