Our mission is to inspire equilibrium, beauty, creativity, and grace in all facets of life through capoeira, an expressive and playful Brazilian self-defense and dance.
The head instructor Capoeira Angola Quintal is Michael Goldstein, known in the capoeira world as Mestre Ombrinho. He began studying capoeira in 1981 with Mestre Acordeon and Mestre Jelon, the two world-renown masters who brought capoeira to the United States. He made his first trip to Brazil in 1985 where he trained with many legendary masters, young and old. Having trained Regional, Angola, and many styles in between, Mestre Ombrinho was drawn to the more grounded, traditional style of Capoeira Angola.
