Capoeira MarAzul was founded on the 15th May 1983 by Joãozinho da Figueira and Valdenor Reis (Sarará), both graduated by Mestre Carioca from the Capoeira Group and Academy ‘Capitães de Areia’ in São Paulo, Brazil. The Group started its activities in the Pontificia Catholic University, São Paolo, soon after its foundation, where it stayed for almost two years, developing a programme of cultural integration with the Academic Centres of the University.
