Trocar Idéia


Don't forget to cite your sources!



Trocar Idéia literally translates to English as "exchange idea."

A human interaction that is about as old as they come.  Of course when it comes to capoeira, those with more time are going to have more ideas to exchange with you.  So brush up your portuguese and go trocar idéia with as many older mestres as you can!
