Filed under: Questions
There’s a reason that I haven’t been posting much lately: I have a series of posts brewing until they’re nice and ready. Come back Monday for the first installment. Until then, I thought I’d ask my readers a question to hold us over.
In your opinion, how important is it to get a better rank or cord? (This is pretty much for regional capoeiristas, but angoleiros can join in too.)
Do you feel that capoeira is like other martial arts? That your skills should be determined by the belt you have? Or do you feel that the belt or rank doesn’t matter, and all that matters is your ability? Do you think that regional should not even bother with cords? I’m not very familiar with the way angola does it, but is their way better?
Think about it, and let’s hear what you think!
