Instituto Leão Teixeira

25 years ago the Institute developed a sports education project called Futuros Campeões (Future Champions), aiming at the social inclusion of vulnerable boys and girls through studying and practising martial art jiu-jitsu.

Over the years, the project has had a great outcome on the life of hundreds of children.

Partners Raphael Miranda e Antonio Pedro Raposo are directors of Instituto Leão Teixeira and, together with master José Henrique Leão Teixeira, participate directly in several activities carried out there. Find out more about Instituto Leão Teixeira:
