Chumbinho is originally from Sydney Australia graduated Formando level (brown cord) of Capoeira Brazil in 2012 under the direction of Mestre Peixe Ensaboado along with the supervision of 2 of Capoeira Brazils 3 founding masters Mestre Boneco & Mestre Paulao.
Chumbinho has been training Capoeira since 1994 in Sydney Australia under Mestre Peixe and has participated in many international events, workshops and performance.
After starting a small team in Sydneys Central Coast in 2000, Chumbinho then started to travel to Japan to assist in the setting up of the Capoeira Brazil school in Osaka in 2003. In 2005 Chumbinho handed over the reigns of the Central Coast branch to be able to move on to another challenge.
That challenge came in the form of relocating to Hong Kong in May 2005 specifically to start teaching Capoeira there and experiment if this artform and culture from Brazil would fit into and be accepted by a culture that already has its own long history and roots in its own style of martial arts of Kung Fu.
Since then Chumbinho and his team have been able to bring Capoeira into the lives of thousands of Hong Kong people persoanlly through workshops, performance and demonstrations and have also been able to demonstrate Capoeira to the millions of people through means of media such as television, newspapers and magazines.
Formando Chumbinho has also been involved in workshops, grading events, performance and demonstration in many major cities of China, Taiwan, Macao, Japan, Malaysia and Singapore.
