"CAPOEIRA é luta de bailarinos, dança de gladiadores"
"CAPOEIRA is a dancers fight, a gladiators dance"
Capoeira is a Brazilian Martial Art that blends music, acrobatics, self-defense techniques and much more into a dynamic and unique discipline.
Giuseppe Vitolo better known as Professor Polvo, started training Capoeira in 1991. He is the director and founder of Tribo Capoeira and Maloca is officially the head quarter of the group in the UK.
Professor Polvo had been in charge of several after school clubs in London, the Capoeira Societies in King’s College and Imperial College and teaches privately to many adults and children/teenagers. He has vast experience teaching children with learning difficulties.
"Polvo" is now based in Bournemouth, Dorset, teaching at IPPON GYM, privately and is starting Capoeira projects in Primary Schools and Universities.
