Andrew has been teaching Capoeira at the Cal Poly Recreation Center since January 2019. He started his martial arts journey in 2001 and has since dabbled in a number of different systems and styles, but his love for Capoeira has always brought it back to the forefront of his training and teaching. Andrew believes that with the combination of music, challenging techniques, and a focus on communication through movement, Capoeira brings forth a vibrant sense of community as well as room for personal growth. Aside from teaching Capoeira, he enjoys training in other martial arts, being out in nature, and reading a good book.
