Bio: Capoeira Afro-Brazil Group in St Kilda Victoria is a local Martial Arts & Self Defence Instruction Group.

Capoeira Angola is the practice of movement, rhythm, strategy and cunning. An Afro-Brazilian born martial-art that is played between people in the spirit of respect, co-operation and honour. It resembles a graceful fight and a fierce dance at the same time.

Instructor Bruno - ‘Gingadinha’ as he is known in the world of Capoeira who is in the photo – began Capoeira in 1990 with Mestre Celso da Rainha in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. After completing 10 years of training, Bruno graduated as a Teacher of Capoeira and in 2007 he received the title of Treinel from Mestre Mano. Gingadinha’s methodology of teaching Capoeira is through Capoeria Angola. Gingadinha also performs various music and dances related to Capoeira, such as Maculele and Samba de Roda, and is a creative artisan of all things Capoeira.

Flor da Gente Capoeira Angola holds classes in St Kilda and Fitzroy, teaching students the traditional form of Capoeira. Percussion, History, Songs and Ritual all support the physical aspects of the game and make it the unique martial arts practice that it is.
