Our story began in the 70s in the city of Campinas, in the state of Sao Paulo, where the then Professor Jurema, a pupil trained in Mestre Suassuna (Cordão de Ouro Group) started giving his lessons. Jurema in fact opened, together with Professor Wilton (Regatas), the capoeira academy "Senhor do Bonfim", which had a short period of union. In fact, in short, Mestre Godoy and Mestre Maya, trained in Jurema, created the Capoeira Coquinho Baiano School. From this moment, therefore, a strong current began to spread, forming citizens of great value for the world of Capoeira and establishing itself as one of the main points of reference of the Capoeira tradition in the Campinas region. The school began to grow and became a group that branched out over the following years to various cities in the state of Sao Paulo, other states and Europe.
