About the instructor
Malcolm Wu, also known as ‘Bocão’ within the capoeira community, established the first capoeira school in Sarawak in 2012 and set about spreading the gospel of capoeira.
For Malcolm, capoeira is a way of life that extends beyond martial arts into a love for life and all it has to offer. His passion to share Brazilian culture with everyone around him led him to organise the first Simplesmente Capoeira gathering in Kuching in 2013, drawing capoeira masters, enthusiasts and practitioners who could see his vision, from all over the globe to Borneo. Since then, the initial gathering has grown into an annual training event which has expanded beyond capoeira into a cross-cultural exchange of knowledge and skills in related fields such as Samba, acrobatics and movement, hosting expert teachers from across the world and uniting students of all levels.
He is presently under the tutelage of Mestre Pontapé of Centro Cultural Luandaé (Brazil/ Hungary), Professor Cavalo of Capoeira Amazonas (Croatia) and Professora Katjuša Kovačič of Capoeira Balanço da Meia Lua (Slovenia).
