A Capoeira batizado is an annual graduation ceremony celebrating the progress that students have made over the past year. Guest Mestres and teachers are invited to teach workshops which allows an extraordinary exchange of information while allowing students to come in contact with the many cultural aspects of capoeira. Batizado is a chance for students to progress to a higher graduation, or receive their first cord. When a student is first baptized in capoeira he or she receives a nickname or apelido, chosen by the Mestres and teachers involved. Capoeira Ache Brasil batizados take place over a weekend where workshops are taught on Friday and Saturday and the final batizado ceremony is held on Sunday afternoon. Family and friends may attend the show and ceremony on Sunday which is open to the public. Batizado is a very important event for capoeiristas and everyone should do their very best to attend!

More details coming soon!
