In translation, Macaco means a monkey. This movement has been called like that as it is more like a monkey move than anything else. In short, it is a back flip performed low to the ground. It requires strength and flexibility but also a very good technique. It might be dangerous and for this a newbie may start practicing it with the assistance of othercapoeiristas.
To Start Macaco: Sit down with your entire soles touching the ground. Put your right hand on the ground behind you. Now stretch out your left hand in front of you; focus it throughout the whole sequence. Say “one!” – wave your left hand over your head, follow it with your eyes, stretch out your knees, then go back into inital position. Say “two!” – repeat step one but do it with more power; stretch into bridge position as in scribble no.2; don’t jump off yet. When you say “three!” you have to explode: pull your left hand fiercly over your head, throw you head back and jump off with both legs. If everything goes straight you will land in a handstand, which leaves you open to 1000 possible movements described above; but at first you should simply step down. For this exercise you need the stretching of your shoulders and your spine. In practice you can be supported by two people who grab you under your thighs and at your back; they should be able to lift you gently over without any danger to your body
