Type of Trick:
Invert / Kick
The Envergado is a Doubleleg from a canceled Raiz. In other words, it's an inverted Parafuso.
The Envergado occurs from the Raiz. Once the back leg is kicked back and the body has become airborne, the shoulders turn outwards and the stomach is tightened, pulling both legs over in a "piked" position. The trick is landed on both feet at the same time. The "doubeleg position" should be entered before the spine is perpendicular to the ground.
There is some discrepancy regarding both the Parafuso and the Envergado. In some Capoeria groups, the Parafuso is actually a trick that resembles the 540, and the Envergado is a trick that resembles the Parafuso. In others, the Parafuso is a trick that resembles the Parafuso, and the Envergado is a term not used.
In tricking, we allow the Parafuso to stand for what it is, and use the term Envergado to denote an inverted Parafuso since it has that "enver" prefix that sounds like "inverted" (so it makes sense).
