Mestre Marreta, Luiz Carlos Afonso, was one of the first capoeira teachers in Europe, almost 30 years ago. First in Portugal, later in Paris and Bochum and since 1986 he is based in Amsterdam and Montes Claros (Brazil). He started to train capoeira in Montes Claros in 1976, first with professor Baiano and then with Mestre Carne de Cobra, who left him in charge of the group when he left town. Thus Marreta became a teacher at the age of sixteen and since then never stopped.
