About Damon Bowens:
Damon Bowens | Instrutor Bombril (Corda Verde – Verde)
Damon Bowens (Instrutor Bombril) is a Houston native who began searching for something different from traditional exercise as a young man. While renewing his interest in his home city and looking for camaraderie, he connected with Mauricio Campos (Contramestre Gringo) at 24Hour Fitness, where he began training Capoeira in 2003. “Capoeira offered all my childhood dreams in one place, with singing, dancing, musical instruments, language, martial arts, traveling, and acrobatics. The Brazilian Arts Foundation and Capoeira gave me a place to open my true personality and explore more of my hidden talents”.
Since 2003, Damon has studied under Contramestre Gringo and many other highly acclaimed Capoeiristas such as Mestre Jelon Viera, the founder of Capoeira Luanda and artistic director and choreographer of DanceBrazil. Damon has assisted in countless youth performances and performed at the Miller Outdoor Theater, Jones Hall, and Houston’s International Festival and Brazilian Festivals with the Brazilian Arts Foundation obtaining his first graduado cord in 2009 and is currently ranked as a first-degree Instrutor (September 2017).
Currently, Damon is a certified professional fitness trainer. He teaches capoeira at Rice University as an LPAP (Lifetime Physical Activity Program) instructor and is an assistant leader at the KIPP Sharpstown College Prep after-school capoeira program. Since October 2014, he has started started sharing the Brazilian Art Foundation’s mission in the Sugar Land area under the supervision of his Contramestre Mauricio Campos.
