In 1983 in the city of Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais state, Brazil, Ricardo Penna Machado , Mestre Macaco (doctor in Physical Education), founded the De Capoeira Ginga Group with the aim of promoting the practice of the sport "Capoeira", offering an education integral (physical and mental) to society in general through a professional service and at the same time to disseminate the Afro-Brazilian culture , as well as maintaining a high technical level without losing roots and training professionals in this art. Currently the Ginga Group is being directed by Mestre Agostinho .
