I began training capoeira in 1998 with Mestra Sorriso in Fairfax, California. A good friend of mine told me that there was a class at the community church.
After my first lesson, I attended every class possible. It was an excellent discipline for me, as well as a lot of fun. Capoeira has taken me to faraway places, helped me to gain confidence and meet a lot of good people. I can’t imagine what my life would be without capoeira and the amazing community I have become a part of!
