Instrutora Esperanca

Kate Turner

 Started capoeira in 2010 with graduado Cai Cai, Pererê’s student in Ōtepoti Dunedin, Aotearoa New Zealand. In 2011, she spent six months in Brazil, learning Portuguese and experiencing the richness and depth of capoeira throughout Brazil.

In 2013, Esperança competed in the World Capoeira Championships in Baku, Azerbaijan - as a taste of "competitive capoeira" - and came first in her category. In 2023 she received her instrutora belt and for the past 3 years she has been teaching capoeira in Te Whanganui ā Tara Wellington, Aotearoa.

Over the last 14 years she has been training and travelling, meeting many capoeiristas around the world who have enriched her capoeira in both knowledge and community.
