Mestre Joãozinho da Figueira

Since we started the Friday rodas, we have enjoyed some very special guests that have contributed to the energy of our space. This has strengthened the integration of the Capoeira groups in London that have understood our chamada. Masters, teachers and students have visited us, bringing positive energy and axé to this tribal ritual that goes beyond the roda, which has given us new friendships and new experiences for the growth of our work as a whole.
This Friday, we will have an extra special visit from Mestre Djop Barbosa from Belgium. The thing we most appreciate in the world of Capoeira is the kindness, humility, attitude and knowledge of the masters and capoeiristas that fight for the promotion and preservation of our art.
Mestre Djop is all this and more, showing calmness and tranquility when sharing his experiences and knowledge. We are sure that everyone who has a chance to meet Djop will understand that this Rasta is one of the family.
We hope that through these Friday rodas, we can be contributing with the growth of everyone who lives and breathes Capoeira like we do.
See you Friday for whoever is free and wants to vadiar!!!!
