David Saldaña

David Saldaña (Formado Bôlão) has trained Capoeira since 2003 and is a student of Mestre Pedro Cruz of Salvador, Bahia. It was the dynamic blend of music, martial arts movements, and performance that drew David to the Afro-Brazilian art of Capoeira. Originally from Austin, Texas by way of Portland, Oregon, David is thankful for the all the relationships, sights, and experiences that training, teaching, and playing Capoeira has brought him. He now leads the Los Angeles branch of Capoeira São Salvador where his goal is to foster the Capoeira community by teaching the art form to those who enjoy fun, fitness, and learning new things.
