    Roberto Tapia: Hi, my name is Roberto Tapia from Capoeira Sul da Bahia, Monitor Bucho. Today, I am going to show you how to play Capoeira. Now, I am going to tell you how to do a Papagayo. This Capoeira movement has different names. We call Papagayo, wachata .

    So at first you are going to start with the Ginga. Let us stop, base again and put your right hand if you wanted to put that side on the floor and later put your leg at the most as you can. That's going to look a little bit slow, hand and back again.

    One more time. Now we are going to do it a little faster. That's how you do a Papagayo.

    Now I am going to show you how to do a back flip in Capoeira.
