Tenho 19 anos, trabalho como auxiliar admistrativo. Comecei a fazer capoeira tem 6 meses. A capoeira está sendo um instrumento fundamental na minha formação como pessoa, ela me faz ver o mundo (e o que há ao meu redor) com outros olhos, com liberdade, com satisfação, me fez ter certeza de que tudo que eu considerava impossivel pra eu fazer simplesmente não existe. Reforça a empatia que há em mim. Acrescenta muito positivamente em mim.

Sou músico e por me identificar muito com o tipo de exercício proposto e com a cultura essencialmente brasileira adoro estas aulas! Tive melhora grande na parte física, alivio de stress durante os treinos e grande influência na minha forma de ver e pensar liderança! Recomendo a todos!

I am a Senior Lecturer at the Carlson School of Management, University of Minnesota. Every year I bring a group of 15-30 college students to Brazil to study innovation and sustainability. Ferradura has been a generous friend, helping my students understand the rich culture and history of capoeira in Brazil. He patiently leads us through a beginner class, while sharing stories about how he helps different communities through capoeira in Brazil. Social innovation is an important part of our experience. He helps us better understand Brazil, and think about ways to bring his wisdom back to the United States. I highly recommend his class

I'm Gina, an incoming tour operator based in Rio. I represent groups and families from other countries who are visiting Rio de Janeiro. The Capoeira class is good for people who never did Capoeira before because they learn in a practical way through a group activity. I strongly recommend this tailor-made Capoeira workshop! My clientes love it!
