Due to breathing problems in his childhood, Bruno Alef da Silva started training capoeira. His very poor family did not have the financial means to pay for swimming lessons, so he found a sport with excellent exercises as an option.
Bruno started his daily training. In the Vila Formosa neighbourhood in São Paulo, he participated in a true and traditional Roda de Capoeira for the first time. When he was only 8 years old, the sound of the instruments, the applause and the singing of the capoeiristas touched him and made him fall in love with the art. Since then he knew that he wanted to dedicate his life to the art of capoeira. In 2001, he joined the Cultura de uma Raça with Mestre Estênio.
In 2015, he graduated in the group '' Cultura de uma Raça '' by mentor Estênio, as a professional Capoeira teacher in São Paulo, Brazil.
Capoeira his lifestyle and one of his dreams has always been to teach capoeira abroad.
Since 2018, he started teaching capoeira to children and adults in Dublin, Ireland.
