The Afro-Brazilian martial art Capoeira combines elements of dance, acrobatics, and music. Cordão de Ouro (CDO) is a form of Capoeira founded by Reinaldo Ramos Suassuna, also known as Mestre Suassuna. The popularity of Caopeira has progressively grown and since its establishment in 1967, CDO has expanded from Brazil to now be taught across the globe.
Classes are available for all age groups from toddler classes, kids, teens to adults of all ages.
Classes take into account each individual’s ability and to help you develop at your own rate.
Mestre Piolho and Capoeira Chester would like to invite you to their annual event, Festival Balanço na Ginga 2020, held in Chester between February 21st and February 23rd.
The Afro-Brazilian martial art combining acrobatics, dance and music
A Capoeira artist born in Patos de Minas - Brazil, Rafael Braga (Mestre Piolho) discovered CDO aged 9yrs old. Always a happy kid he became dedicated to practicing his art and has never stopped training since. Every day he gets more motived by his students, his Mestre and where he is next going to share his experience. He left Brazil at age 19 and after training and teaching in France for 6 years with Mestre Chicote, he moved to Chester where he started a group and a new Capoeira chapter began.
In teaching and sharing his experiences in Capoeira, Mestre Piolho has given workshops in over 23 counties, taught at University of Chester and in schools across Cheshire. As well as teaching in Chester, supervises groups in Stoke-on-Trent, Tours - France, Vilnius - Lithuania and Siberia - Russia.
Mestre Piolho started the CDO group in Chester in 2010 based on the foundations of Respect, Community, Passion and to Achieve. The group has continued to flourish and now offers regular toddler, kids, teens and adult classes. Classes are offered for all levels with Mestre Piolho structuring sessions to cater for students of all ages allowing each student to progress at their own rate. The group hosts an annual Capoeira event inviting students and instructors from around the world for a weekend of workshops learning and celebrating Capoeira and Brazilian culture."
