About the Instructor: My name is Contra-Mestre Girafa and I have been teaching Capoeira here in the South Bay for over 5 years. I started learning this unique Brazilian martial art form over 15 years ago. Capoeira has shaped and formed the person I am today. It has given me such joy, happiness and has taught me how to have a different outlook on life. Capoeira is truly a gift.
