Capoeira lineage under Mestre Pastinha
The concept of lineage is one that is of primary importance to the practitioners of
Capoeira Angola. Lineage, the chain of teachers ("mestres") and students, defines a person's place in the Capoeira community, and structures a school's teachings and philosophies. Styles may evolve differently through different teachers, who, in turn, pass these new styles on to their own students. Vicente Ferreira Pastinhais considered by mostwho to be the founder of modern Capoeira Angola. Although there existed a number of other Angola mestres during his time in Pelorinho, Pastinha's school can be considered the most influential in shaping Capoeira Angola into what it is today. Most mestres of Capoeira Angola can trace their lineage back to Pastinha.
