Professor Soldado (Cristiano Genuino da Silva)
軍曹老師(Soldado) 出生於巴西的雷西非，由於之前為職業軍人，因此得到了「軍曹老師」的稱號。他從16歲起便隨著幾位著名的大師，如Mestre Liminha、Mestre Joao Capoeira 、及Mestre Grillo學習卡波耶拉，同時亦習得跆拳道、空手道、及巴西柔術等武術，這些不同的武術與相關技術讓他的卡波耶拉風格更多變而有趣。
在2006年Soldado移居馬來西亞的吉隆坡，並擔任寶拉大師所創的Grupo Capoeira CamaraGrupo Capoeira Camara在馬來西亞的專任老師。對於馬來西亞的學生來說，巴西的卡波耶拉是外來的文化，但Soldado熱情的教學讓學生們慢慢地了解了巴西的文化、卡波耶拉的歷史、相關的音樂、巴西人的哲學與人生觀等等；他不僅希望大家了解學習卡波耶拉，更希望大家藉由接觸了這個異國文化、繼而開放與全球的多元文化、背景接軌，在過程中讓卡波耶拉不只是文化、武術、更成為文化的橋樑。
