Many of these movements over time have lost relevance or have lost their meaning. Many of the movements associated with these names have also been lost. But I am sure there are some mestres who still remember which movements are which.
Many of these movements were rarely used in the game of regional anyway. It was mainly the movements from the 8 sequences that were mainly used. Mestre Itapoan said once when teaching a workshop that if you have learnt the sequences properly and understand them, you will be able to apply the movements and method to any roda from any style around the world.

    why is Bencao in takedowns?

    And – could you supply a list of those traditional moves that are still commonly used?

    Are there moves that are commonly used in current day regional that aren’t in the list?

  2. doop Says:

    This is very interesting..I haven’t even heard of some of these moves!
    And like Josh says, why is Bencao listed under takedowns? Isn’t it a regular kick?

  3. chan Says:

    yes, I also find it a little unusual that bencao is in the takedown section, but as said in mestre itapoans book ‘the saga of mestre bimba’, ” The objective of the following blows is to knock the adversary down” and then lists the movements that I have mentioned above. So in a way the bencao was used to knock the other person down… if that makes sense.
    hope this helps.
    chan.

    Wow this was probably one of the most effective posts I’ve had the chance to view on the topic so far. I don’t have any idea where you gather up all of your data but I am impressed! I am going to send a few individuals over here to check this out. Amazing, totally fantastic. I am have just started getting into writing articles myself, nothing close to your writing skills (doh) but I would love for you to look over my articles someday! here
