Capoeira Mandinga is part of the world famous CORDÃO DE OURO group
with branches all over the world from Brazil to Iceland.
Capoeira Mandinga was founded in 1984 by Marcelo Caveirinha, a student of Mestre Suassuna from the Cordão de Ouro group. The main idea of his group was to combine the two main styles of capoeira – Angola, the slower playing style, and Regional, the fast capoeira with combat elements.
Capoeira Mandinga Shanghai is the first capoeira school in China, which was created in 2005 by Professor Diego “Guerreiro”, a student of mestre Marcelo. Thanks to his initiative and academic connections, he managed to create an effective training system.
