"My path in the Capoeira world started over 20 years ago as a young boy. What started as a hobby soon became a passion.
This wonder martial art presents a recipe, which is hard to resist.
Nowadays as a certified Capoeira instructor i teach people of all ages with an experience of 15 years in several countries.
Along side the regular trainings i offer capoeira shows, workshops, special courses and more...
Being such a colourful and versified Art, visiting further advanced training regularly is essential for me as well, in order to discover the vast variety of aspects, Capoeira conceals in it. Nevertheless, at the end of the day it is all about sharing my passion with others...Capoeira :)
What are you waiting for? come by and try it out!"
