4th Sep's Class

You learnt:

Queixada. 'Queixo' is 'chin'. Dá means 'to give'. So you could understand 'queixada' is 'giving it to the chin', which is what you're aiming for anyway.

Cadeira. 'Cadeira' means 'chair'. Carpentry techniques weren't always what they are today. In the old days, such low chairs were made of bone and sinew.

Cocorinha Entrada. 'Entrance with the Cocorinha'. 'Cocorinha' means 'defecation'. Unlike the Queixada, this is emphatically not what you are aiming for.. It's hard to find a video of this because many groups call it different names, and some don't have a name for it. The closest thing so far is 'Jinga 4' in this video. If you find something with better pedagogical utility, let us know in the comments.

Lastly, you learnt these songs:
Quem vem la, sou eu
