New Members to the Council of Masters

New Members to the Council of Masters

Two new members to the Council of Masters have been confirmed and are now part of the WCF family.

Let's take a quick look at the new members.

 

Mestra Brisa.

Carolina Gusmao Magalhaes, age 43, started Capoeira in Nordeste de Amaralina, Salvador, Bahia with Mestre Bozo Preto in 1992. After traversing through a variety of other organisations she settled in the Associaçao Cultural GUETO in 1999 under the guidance of Mestre Jean Pangolin.

She received her formation as a Master of Capoeira in 2009. She is currently studying a doctorate at the UFBA School of Nutrition and holds a Masters in Social Management.

 

Mestre Yoji Senna (da Bahia)

Yoji Macieira Valverde Senna, age 57, started Capoeira at the age of 12 while studying in the Salvador Military College and became Bahia state youth champion at the age of 14.

Mestre Yoji Senna is the son of Mestre Carlos Senna, who was a student of Mestre Bimba. He left Bahia in his early twenties to Argentina where he founded and directed the Department of Afro-American Culture at the University of Buenos Aires in 1987-1991 and it was in 1992 that he made the move into the USA and founded the Afro-Brazilian Capooeira Association.

 

We are very lucky to have another two great masters to contribute to the growth of the WCF who have dedicated their lives to Capoeira and contributed an enormous amount of experience, energy and knowledge to the artform.
