•  He put his capoeira in the Corta-Braço invasion
    Salvador, 1940

    M Waldemar: «In 1940 I started to teach here in Pero Vaz.

    [..] The roda in Liberdade was out in the open, close to the grove. I made a roda in the shade and put the guys to play there. Later I made a hut out of large straws and every capoeirista of Bahia came to my hut. »

    Interview to M Luiz Renato, 1989
