   I started practising capoeira when I was 5 years old in the Brazilian state of Sao Paulo. I trained there for a year, but I wasn't too interested in capoeira at that time, so I only started practising it because my father also did and wanted me to join him. Later, I returned to capoeira at the age of 12 when my family moved to the state of Minas Gerais.  
I wanted to get back to capoeira because at school I was one of the smallest in class and always suffered bullying, then thought I needed to defend myself.

   In 2005 my father met Monitor Brais, a capoeira teacher who taught in the city where I moved to and was from the Capoeira Muzenza Group. I knew about the group, but never imagined that I would join them one day. Then, my dedication increased with each training day, with each event I participated, with desire to be a great ‘capoeirista’ was much greater than my difficulties.

   Now 18 years have passed and I have never stopped training. I have been at some countries and several states in Brazil. I took part in 6 world championships and got first place in 4 of them.
   I taught children, adults and seniors - I love to teach a little of what I know. I have a ‘Professor’ degree, but I feel like a student every time we talk about capoeira. The teachings of this art form are eternal and my master, Contramestre Brais, keeps instructing me to this day.
    I now live in Brighton and Hove, UK, and would love to be able to make my mark on anyone who is willing to learn.
