Tell us a bit about you and Capoeira (short Capoeira biography):

I know and see capoeira since very little as I am from Brasil! So I started as a little kid but ended up stopping after almost an year coz my parents put more importance on swimming training..but It was always calling me to go back and so I went back to practice capoeira when I was in college.
