  • About the event

    The Capoeira batizado is a celebration of initiation for new Castro Valley Capoeira students.  It is when new students play Capoeira with a teacher to receive their first cordão(cord/belt).  It is a tradition that began with Mestre Bimba (creator of Capoeira) as a way to recognize a new student's understanding of the beginning steps of Capoeira. It was a rite of passage that typically happened in class, amongst peers. Today it has become a community celebration that includes the Troca de Cordões (changing of belts) when older students receive their next cordões.  

    We also invite special guest teachers to give workshops, our friends to come share their energy to celebrate with us, we play music, and ultimately we make our capoeira community stronger. 

    Why should you sponsor?
