In 2005 Julio Chaves and Andre Cerutti (Mestre Peixe) started to work on the establishment of the International College of Capoeira (ICC) for the purpose of developing students in the required skills and knowledge of Capoeira through a sport coaching qualification specialising in the Martial Art of Capoeira.
Through immense consultation with related industry experts and the consent of the Capoeira industry specialists Mr Julio Chaves and Mr Andre Cerutti (Mestre Peixe) went about the development of the International College of Capoeira and in 2007 the college received recognition and approval by the state regulators to deliver approved vocational accredited courses.
In 2009 after being approved to deliver accredited qualifications in Sport Coaching to overseas students, ICC officially opened its door to its learners.
After much success and interest from learners in early 2011, Mr Julio Chaves and Mr Andre Cerutti (Mestre Peixe) decided to expand the education facility and alter the college mission. One of the obvious changes in the establishment is the new trading name ‘College of Sports & Fitness’, (CSF).
CSF is constantly searching for innovative solutions to enhance the learning outcome of all students in the Sports and Recreation industry and to give its learners the tools and knowledge needed to become a successful working professional within their chosen field.
