About Capoeira:
Capoeira is a cultural representation that mixes sport, fight, dance, popular culture, music and play. It is characterized by agile and complex movements, where the feet, hands and gymnastic-acrobatic elements are used. It is different from other martial arts as it is accompanied by music.

About Thiago:

He started practicing capoeira at age 13, he has been practicing the art for more than 20 years and studied to be a teacher under his master Aberre. Thiago has always followed in the footsteps of this master and performed at several cultural festivals all over Brazil, every year he visits Salvador in Bahia, the birthplace of capoeira to visit ancient masters of this Brazilian art.
