WHO WE ARE
The Cordão de Ouro group
CDO stands for Cordão de Ouro, which means the Golden Cord. Cordão de Ouro is one of the biggest and most renowned Capoeira groups in the world with schools in over 70 countries.
My name is Lee and I am known in Capoeira as Instrutor Ouriço. Alongside my wife, Mariana, we have been running Capoeira classes in Perth for nearly 10 years.
I am also a passionate high-school science and psychology teacher. I am proud of my experience and expertise in education which I believe are great assets to our Capoeira school. My passion for teaching is only surpassed by my dedication to the learning and happiness of our students.
Our mission is to improve people's lives through the joy of Capoeira. Capoeira CDO Perth embodies the following values:
CONNECT - COMMUNITY - INCLUSION - JOY - FREEDOM
Capoeira can be practiced by people of all ages, all bodies and all abilities. We offer Capoeira classes in Perth for kids as young as 3 all the way to adults with no age limit.
