My team and I were invited to the Brazil In Here Event on the 24th, 25th and 26th of July which was organized by RDA UK. Every one of the officers that attended had a great time and it was fantastic to see so many different people from various cultures and backgrounds coming together and enjoying what is a disciplined Martial Art.

Everyone participating had so much control, agility and energy. We were surprised that even after performing acrobatic moves for nearly two hours, everyone still got involved with the dancing for an hour at the end of the session. If it wasn’t for all the equipment that we were wearing I am sure that we would have joined in. Everyone was extremely friendly and happy to answer any questions that we had about the background, instruments and moves involved with this Brazilian Martial Art.

We will be happy to attend any further events that RDA UK organize and wish them well.

I highly recommend RDA UK, Brazilian Martial Arts as a club, which I feel should be offered at any school.

Jeronimo who is the lead instructor has worked at St Michael & St Martin primary school for the past 3 years. He has coached, developed and delivered outstanding sessions of Capoeira within our school, which has seen our children, focus on developing fine motor skills through varied movement, dance and disciplines, whilst developing personal confidence.

He has always worked and conducted himself at a level we believe is extremely professional and of a very high standard. His enthusiasm and energy has filtered out to our children in a positive manner, which has developed our children’s love for sport and directed them into developing young athletes.

Jeronimo and his team continue to provide our school with a service we cannot fault.

Jeronimo and his team have a wonderful rapport with people of all ages, especially children. His ability to connect with his students and his talent at teaching simple concepts, as well as more advanced skills, are both truly superior. He has excellent manners, is extremely organised, reliable and flexible.

I recommend RDA UK to any school without reservation. If you have any further questions with regard to Jeronimo and his team, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours Sincerely,
Jared Bell

“I’ve started having classes in Jan/2012 and I think about Capoeira all day long – the lyrics, how to play the instruments, how to do certain movement… I can’t explain why, but I’m addicted to it!”
Luciana – Staines

“I’m loving it. I exercise my whole body and I am finally loosing weight after having tried many different exercises and diets unsuccessfully… I also love singing the songs!”
Tereza – Staines

“It is good for my mind and for my health. I like the positive energy and the music in class, but best of all are the great friends I made. It is like a big family!”
Pelé – Staines

“I have been practicing capoeira with Prof. Jeronimo since July 2011. I think Jeronimo is a great teacher who is always willing to help. He is very friendly, dynamic and is always promoting unity within the group.

I have noticed that I’m improving a lot in terms of game, singing, discipline, kicks, defence, etc.

Training capoeira is something that became part of my life. I attend his classes in Hounslow, Feltham, Twickenham and Staines. I try my best not to miss classes because this is the way I found to de-stress, have fun and keep fit.

I would strongly recommend Jeronimo’s classes for everyone interested in having a healthier lifestyle.”
Maisa – Feltham

“Before I started going to capoeira classes I was a bit worried as I thought I wouldn’t be able to follow the class and the others but from day 1 professor Jeronimo made me feel comfortable and its just the way he teaches. Also he has been extremely patient with my limits that have improved since.

I recommend professor Jeronimo to anyone wishing to improve in self confidence and general body conditioning!!!”
Junior – Langley

“I have been training capoeira for more than one year and I think it is the best thing I have done in my life. You always feel welcomed in class, it is like a big family.

Capoeira gives you not only just fighting skills but also gives you rhythm, flexibility and discipline. Even when I feel really tired and think of skipping a class, I end up going – this class give me so much energy it feels like I had an energy drink!

I feel great at the end of it and I want to continue training more.”
Vitaly – Feltham

“Capoeira is great for stimulating the body and mind. I have been training with Professor Jeronimo since April 2011 and the way he teaches will ensure you’ll come to grasp with even the most complex sequences, as he breaks them down in to simple bites, so it is less confusing and in time you will grow to play a beautiful game in the Roda.”
James – Hounslow

I had a baby not too long ago and still carry a few extra pounds ( a lot actually:) but I am not afraid of joining the classes because there are exercises for all fit or not very fit like me at the moment. I don’t feel left out and I look forward to improve my skills.
