In 2002, during my second year studying Psychology in Brazil and teaching yoga, I fell in love with the capoeira teaching profession and decided to work and dedicate the rest of my life to capoeira.

I had been teaching since 1999 more or less casually, but after 2002 I finished the last three years of my Bachelor’s degree studying capoeira intensely at University. I stopped teaching Yoga after three years of great experiences, and dedicated myself to studying, training intensively and teaching the art of capoeira as much as I could. Now in 2015, I have completed 33 years of martial arts, 22 of which have been dedicated to capoeira. It was the best choice I’ve made and I’m extremely happy with it!
