Ade (Carvao) started training with Professor Topera after watching a class and feeling compelled to try it. That was a decade ago, and he is still as enthusiastic today of as was back then. Ade regularly assists in teaching classes, and continues to improve his skills by attending various Capoeira events and regular training of course! As a personal fitness trainer and motivator, Ade has harnessed essential skills to tailor Capoeira classes to suit your individual needs.
Piers (Magrelo) has been practising Capoeira since 2002 under the leadership of both Mestre Marinaldo and Professor Topera, and has travelled to Brazil a couple of times to join workshops there and experience the many facets of Capoeira. He has also been assisting and teaching the younger students of the group in London, gaining vital experience for anyone trying it for the first time. With nearly 15 years experience of training, workshops & performances, Piers has reached a good level within Grupo Capoeira Esporão to teach new and intermediate players.
