Luiz Henrique Menezes Guimarães, from Brazil, is also known as Professor Gordinho.
With over twenty years of experience as a capoeira competitor, teacher, singer, and composer of capoeira music he has brought the richness of Brazilian culture to diverse communities around the world and now, to New York City.
