about Mestre Valmir:
One of the founding members of the International Capoeira Angola Foundation (ICAF) and leader of FICA Salvador since 1996, Mestre Valmir has been the reference of our group in Helsinki since 2004. Valmir Santos Damasceno started learning Capoeira Angola in 1982 in his home town Salvador as disciple of Mestre Moraes and Mestre Cobra Mansa in Grupo de Capoeira Angola Pelourinho. In the early 1990s he started working on social projects related to Capoeira Angola and established a group, soon joining with Cobra Mansa and Mestre Jurandir to set up ICAF in 1995. He received the title of Mestre in 2003. Mestre Valmir frequently travels to teach and promote Capoeira Angola in Brazil, Europe, the United States and Japan. In 2015 some of the Helsinki group members joined Mestre Valmir celebrating his 50th birthday at the Brazilian head branch of FICA in Salvador. We are grateful to receive him in Finland for the 19th time and give continuity to the work and dedication of our charming reference. You are more than welcome to join us!
