Martial Arts Scene (Campinas)

Hi guys,

I'm an Australian, married to a Brazilian, currently living in California but possibly moving to Campinas soon. As a Personal Trainer and Martial Arts Instructor, I'd be very interested in hearing about peoples experience with the local martial arts scene in Campinas.

What kind of stuff is available? What is the price range like? What is the quality of training like? Would there likely be any demand for English speaking instructors specifically? (I also speak Portuguese but my native language is English).

To put this in context a bit, for those who are already in the scene, I currently teach Kickboxing and Jeet Kune Do. I'll probably begin teaching Eskrima when I move and am definitely planning on taking the opportunity to improve my Jiu Jitsu and Vale Tudo. That said, I'm interested in hearing about anything martial artsy. It doesn't specifically have to be JKD or MMA related.

Clint.
