is "bananeira" also acceptable? Just wondering, because I learn capoeira and a "handstand" is "bananeira" but I also understood bananeira to mean a banana because a capoeira handstand is curved slightly like a banana?
Hi there, I used to play capoeira angola. The bananeira is actually the banana plant or "tree" where the banana bunches grow from. I hope you´re still doing capoeira. Bless!!!
I always was taught it was the plant too, as when you do a handstand, and have one leg horizontal and one leg vertical, it looks a little like a banana tree.
