Fil Torres came to Canada from León, Mexico in 2007 and began his Capoeira training in Calgary under the instruction of Contra-Mestre Tigrão (São Paulo, Brazil) in 2008. Kanguru, as Fil is known in Capoeira, has taught kids and adult classes at various locations in Calgary, including workshops in Spanish. With Axé Capoeira, Kanguru has performed Capoeira,  Brazilian dances, and music, at festivals and demonstrations. He is planning on taking a fitness trainer's program in the near future. Kanguru continues to train in Capoeira, as he loves the combination of martial arts, dance, music, and fitness that it offers.
