Capoeira Workshops with

Mestre Morcego

Born in Rio de Janeiro, Rogério Francisco da Silva began training capoeira in 1981. He trained with Mestre Camisa at the Santa Luzia Regatta and Swimming Club in Aterro do Flamengo, RJ, Brazil. He actively served in the Marine Corps of Brazil from 1984 to 2011. In 2011, he was recognized as Mestre by Mestre Camisa and ABADÁ-Capoeira. Today, Mestre Morcego supervises and guides the members of the ABADÁ School, and travels extensively around the world to teach up-to-date technical courses. Mestre Morcego is fluent in English, thus facilitating the dynamics of his teachings.
