"Everybody in Capoeira has a nickname," says Natal, who started studying at the age of 14. "I went to the gym for my first class and the professor asked my nickname, and I didn't have one. A friend of mine looked to me and said, 'he's toad (sapo)', and then that was it."
This was my first time experiencing a Roda. I joined Amanda Salvato once again on a shoot with with Sapo. This is a new movement for UFC Brasil to dig a little deeper into their fighter's stories. This really aligns with our mission and storytelling in that we are trying to dig a little deeper into the fighters' lives, beyond eating/training/sleeping. I need to continue learning as much about the art as possible, and see where the story goes.
Thanks Nago Academy for having me in your space. Looking forward to working on this project.
