Professor Curioso started training Capoeira with Mestre Bola in 2000 in Toronto, Canada. Before coming to Cork, he had run various classes in Canada, and taught workshops around the world. Bringing this experience with him, Curioso moved to Ireland in 2010. Although Capoeira existed here in Cork, he wanted to train in the ways he was taught, and felt he had a lot to offer. Professor Curioso brings with him over 20 years of experience, training, teaching, travelling, performing and organizing events.
Professor Curioso originally established a small Capoeira in Cork City in 2012, however due to several factors the group only lasted about a year. After a trip to Brazil, Curioso came back to Cork, and was re-inspired to start a group in 2014, with the help of two very enthusiastic friends and students. From there the group has grown exponentially, and went from 2 Adults classes per week, to a school that now has 9 weekly classes and a monthly Roda, 6 coaches, and has classes for Toddlers, Kids, Teens and Adults of all ages!
