Professor Gavião

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!
