We invite ALL members of TEAM CAPOEIRA BAMBA to participate, regardless of level or how long you’ve been training.
Our last Batizado was November 2018, but training hasn’t stopped! Many new faces have joined since, the regulars have come back and others never missed a day.
A #Batizado is a traditional ceremony hosted by Capoeira schools as a way to recognize their students progress in the art. The first Capoeira ranking system was created by Mestre Bimba, who used colored silk scarfs, which were believed to protect the users neck from the “Navalhas” (razors) carried by the Capoeiristas of the time.
Today, most schools use a rope or braded cord around the waist to identify the Capoeiristas level of expertise.
The 1st RODA DE BAMBA is open to participants from all schools and to spectators. Please contact us if you’d like to take part.
This event is open to all Capoeiristas of any school who want to train, play and learn from each other and enrich everyone’s Capoeira experience.
TEAM BAMBA was launched in December of 2019, and shortly after, the world shut down. This will be our FIRST event as TEAM CAPOEIRA BAMBA and the 15th event hosted by our team.
Stay tuned to @capoeirabamba for official poster, t-shirt design, schedule, new belt system and more!
