:: Mestre Zumbi ::
Mestre Zumbi began training Capoeira at the age of nine in his native home of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He has taught Capoeira and Afro-Brazilian dance for more than ten years in Brazil and the United States and has participated in countless workshops, performances and exhibitions the world over.
Community outreach and classes for children have long been an emphasis of Zumbi's work both in Brazil and now in the US. Working with local community centers and art coalitions he has worked to bring Capoeira to the local youth as a means for both mental and physical development as well as providing connections with African and Brazilian cultural heritage.
