Master Suino - Mr. Elto Pereira de Brito

Mestre Suino (Elto Pereira de Brito) founded Grupo Candeias in 1977. A graduate in Physical Education and post-graduate in Teaching Physical Education, Mestre Suino is always seeking ways to improve the standard of his teachers and students and encouraging the study of Capoeiras folklore and history. He has written three books; Fundamentos da Capoeira, No Caminho do Mestre and Capoeira e Religiao. “Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art. Capoeira is fight, dance, game, self-defense, gymnastics, folklore, art, education, history, physical education, pleasure, fun and therapy.

Capoeira is the combination of dance, fight and game.” - Mestre Suino, founder of Grupo Candeias.
