My name is Andre Amado and I’m known in Capoeira as Instructor Massape. Capoeira is a Afro Brazilian art form; a mix of Martiial arts, Music, Dance, Acrobatics, Culture and Portuguese Language. I’m students of the pioneer of Capoeira in the USA, Master Jelon Vieira, with over 50 years on this art form. I’ve been practicing this art for 20 years now and teaching for 14 and since the beginning I had interest on teaching for kids and adults alike. During my bachelors years in psychology (concluded in 2005 at PUC-Rio de Janeiro- Brazil) I studied extensively Capoeira and its relation with human development for kids and adults, under a lot of different perspectives: psychologically, developmentally, socially, and culturally, as well as a sport form and more... I have taught regular classes and workshops in many different venues, Private gyms, schools, after schools, universities and over a few different countries: Brazil, New Zealand, USA and Mexico.
As my neighborhood of choice I hold classes in North Park, San Diego, CA -USA for kids and adults. Check my website for more information.
