About Mestre Senna

On October 25, 1955, Mestre Senna founded the Centro de Pesquisa, Estudo e Instrução de Capoeira Senavox (Center for Research, Study and Instruction of Capoeira Senavox), the third school in capoeira history. In Senavox, Mestre Senna introduced the use of the abadá (white clothing traditionally worn by carriage drivers, cargo loaders, and clothes collectors) as uniforms for capoeiristas (capoeira practioners), the salve (greeting that begins and ends a capoeira session), and a system of classification and competition.
