Mestrando Anjo is from Uberlandia, Minas Gerais, Brazil. He started training Capoeira when he was 13 years old with Mestre Caranguejo, Mestre Baleia and Grao Mestre Corisco. He excelled and soon after he was trusted to teach Capoeira. Mestrando Anjo taught several areas and students from all sorts of backgrounds. Over the following 8 years he continued to teach in different areas and built a successful Capoeira group.
It was at this point in his career that he decided to bring his style of Capoeira to the UK. He settled in Leicester for 2 ½ years and started to build a successful Capoeira group. In 2003 he again had an opportunity to take his style of Capoeira to Northern Ireland for a year. He taught children and adults and he had a good following.
Mestrando Anjo then moved to Leamington Spa, is where he is currently based, and he now has classes in Leamington Spa, Leicester, Coventry and Derby.
