In response to my question, How can I improve my Capoeira low game other than "just doing it"?, the suggestion was made to try the Miudinho sequences as used by the Cordao de Ouro group. I've found a good video depiction of the sequences here, but I'm a textual learner in a lot of ways. Is there a book or other source of information indicating the moves involved in these sequences? The closest I've found is an iTunes app (which no longer seems to be available) which is of little use to me because I don't own an Apple tablet.

  • Asked a friend of mine who is a professor in a different school system, and he wasn't aware of any other than the video.

  • @JohnP: Thank you for following up. I guess I'll just have to make my own transcript. :) Sep 18 '17 at 20:03
  • He said his school is not that "nice", and noted the sequences are intended to be a fun game that is kind of tricky, but not aggressive.

  • @JohnP: Can he comment whether the sequences are a fixed set of movements, or if it's more of a general concept? It's been unclear to me when trying to read up on it. It certainly looks like a rehearsed sequence, but that can often apply to playing at a high level. Sep 18 '17 at 20:30

    Fixed sequences done with partners.

I asked this question on Reddit and got an answer that this is actually several Cordão de Ouro sequences. There is no written version. The app just broke it down into the individual sequences.

It looks like it's now available for Android, but as per the Reddit thread, there's no textual description and, honestly, the low framerate for the sections is mildly nauseating, at least for me.
