About KY
KY started his journey in the movement and martial arts world in 2003, as a Taekwondo practitioner. He attained the 1st dan black belt in the year 2008. He later found Capoeira in 2010, and had focused his training in the art ever since. There are various schools of thought in the diverse art of Capoeira. KY believes that the art should be embraced holistically, and the seemingly contradictory philosophies - dance vs martial art, trickery vs objectivity, playfulness vs aggression, can all be embodied within the body, mind and spirit of the Capoeirista.
KY continues to spread the wisdom and teachings of Capoeira under the pupillage of Mestre Xuxo, founder of the Pelo Sinal da Santa Cruz school of Capoeira.
