Belt System

About Our Belt System

Team Capoeira Bamba utilizes a belt system to acknowledge the knowledge of the Capoeira student. The belt is known as “corda”, or cord, and is presented to the student during an event called the Batizado (baptism). This is an event that celebrates the Brazilian culture through dances and music and where students can progress through the belt system. Capoeira Bamba Toronto holds a batizado once every year with sold-out theatre performances.
