About Us

Classes are taught by Monitores Bambu and Tubarão from the group Associação de Capoeira Mandingueiros dos Palmares. The ACMP is an internationally recognized capoeira organization founded by Mestre Chuvisco. It is dedicated to the preservation of capoeira and Afro-Brazilian culture, and has chapters across the United States, Mexico, and Brazil.

Mestre Chuvisco was born in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. There he trained with Grao-mestre Dunga, a student of Mestre Bimba, and was given the rank of capoeira mestre in 1977. He founded the ACMP later that year and has been teaching ever since.

Bambu and Tubarão have been training with Mestre Chuvisco and the ACMP since 2006 and 2007 respectively, and enjoy teaching capoeira to students of all ages and experience levels.
