Capoeira Black belt
Rad is a passionate martial arts instructor and personal trainer. He has been training Capoeira for 18 years, is a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu (13 years of practise) and certified Level 3 Personal Trainer.
Rad came to Bristol in 2006 with the dream to earn and save money to go to Brazil. After accomplishing his dream and spending six weeks between Belo Horizonte, Recife and Salvador, he came back to Bristol to open his capoeira school. He has since successfully been leading multiple kids and adults capoeira classes every week in Redfield before relocating to Barton Hill in 2019.
Rad travelled nationally and internationally to attend Capoeira workshops and international Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu competitions (Poland, France, Portugal, Germany, North America, Brazil) learning from the best and always delivering high-quality classes in a safe and fun environment.
Rad is creative, caring, passionate (if not obsessed!) by martial arts and is always looking for the trendy techniques, the coolest moves and the newest capoeira songs.
His mojo: dream, believe, achieve.
