Welcome to Capoeira Obra de Arte, Philippines. This is the homepage for the only Capoeira academy in the Central Visayas.
We are a professional Capoeira show team serving the Asia Pacific region. Under the supervision of Mestre Torpedo, who hails from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, we teach the unique Brazilian art of Capoeira around Metro Cebu and in Tagbilaran at our academy, schools and orphanages.
We are headed by ContraMestre Lobo (Jensen Chow), who was crowned the Asia Pacific Capoeira Champion by the Superliga Brasileira de Capoeira in 2004, and is the 1st Filipino to receive the Capoeira rank of "ContraMestre". We also have 8 fully qualified "Instrutor" ranks among our Cebuano crew, and a "Monitor" rank based in Manila, Monitor Pipo.
Our master is a Rio de Janeiro native, Mestre Torpedo, who has close to 40 years experience in the art of Capoeira. Our Mestre taught and performed Capoeira in Spain (Madrid, Tenerife, Canary Island), Argentina, Japan, Thailand, Taiwan, Indonesia, Maldives, Cambodia and Philippines. Mestre Torpedo was the 1st Capoeira master to live and teach in Thailand and the Philippines, and is a pioneer in Asia. He now lives on the Gold Coast, Australia.
We are a part of Grupo de Capoeira Obra de Arte, an international Capoeira Grupo / Association
with branches in Brazil, Australia and Philippines.
