Marcello Pietrantonio, baptized with the funky apelido (capoeira nickname) “Caçapa” (pronounced KA-SA-PA). Caçapa started Capoeira in 2000 under the guidance of Instrutor Canguru, and trained under Professor Gringo while he was head instructor of Bantus Capoeira Australia. He received his yellow cord (Instrutor) from Mestre Pintor in 2008 at Grupo Bantus Capoeira Japão’s 2nd Batizado. In 2003, he spent 4 months in Brazil with Mestre Pintor and the group in Belo Horizonte. In Brazil, he was lucky enough to travel and play Capoeira in Rio, São Paulo, Vitoria, Belo Horizonte, and Salvador. From Brazil, Caçapa travelled and trained in Argentina, Chile, New York, Canada, Germany, Austria, and Japan.

Then Castle Tintagel is the Tokyo’s one and only medieval Western martial arts and cultural center which teaches anything from 15th century German longsword to Renaissance dancing.
The martial arts include the Academy of Chivalry, where students learn to fit and maintain armor, make practice weapons, and all the other skills you need to become a knight in this day and age. Students of the Academy of Chivalry gain all the skills needed to become an armored fighter. Our longsword and sword and buckler classes offer a chance to learn medieval fighting styles without the need for armor. We also offer rapier activities, including both stage and competitive rapier.
On the cultural side, we have Renaissance dances (specializing in 15th-16th century French, English and Italian), costume-making classes for a variety of historical items, and even calligraphy classes. Our in-house store has a variety of period costumes and armor for sale. Regular parties and events give our members a chance to socialize and show off their skills, medieval-style.
