I trained with Mestre Aranha for about three years. He has a relaxed and straightforward method of instruction that manages to put you at ease while allowing you to understand all the subtleties of a particular movement or sequence. His classes are engaging, full of energy, and a CRAZY good workout.
In addition to all that, Aranha's just a really great guy, and his classes are super fun. I'd definitely recommend trying his school out - you'll be glad you did. Axé!
