Professor Ligerinho

I began taking capoeira classes in 2000 with Mestre Marcelo to get some exercise and stay sane. Capoeira is always challenging me to learn new things, like playing music, cooperating with a partner, going with the flow, grace under pressure, and recognizing the work I have to do. When I’m not at Capoeira Mandinga, I teach literature and work in my garden.
