He's a 36-year-old experienced practitioner in the art of Capoeira and has been since the age of six.[1]

Career[edit]

Santos is best known for his appearance in Tom-Yum-Goong (known in North America as The Protector), using Capoeira in a fight scene with Tony Jaa. Due to an injury to his achilles tendon, the scene was cut short, but he has since recovered, and was featured in the martial arts feature, Duel of Legends,[2] released in 2007. Due to his Capoeira skills and resemblance to the character, Lateef Crowder played the role of Eddy Gordo in the Tekken feature film.[3] He has also featured in Undisputed 3 which stars Scott Adkins and Mykel Jenkins. Directed by Isaac Florentine and also stars in the Kevin Tancharoen directed short film Mortal Kombat: Rebirth.[4]
