Event description

Description

Each year the Batizado Event is a tradition practiced by Capoeira Schools throughout the World. The Batizado is an initiation ritual and ceremony which has evolved a lot over the centuries and is still honoured in the practice of Capoeira in a modern and global context. A student's Batizado (Baptism) is the first time a student plays inside the Roda (Capoeira Playing Circle) with a Mestre de Capoeira (Master of Capoeira). In this way, it is a rite of passage. Often, a student may receive an apelido, a new nickname that they become known by in the Capoeira World. In the past, students would train for many months before they set foot in the Roda. Today, although students may have experience playing inside the Roda, the Batizado is considered their first real experience of the Jogo de Capoeira (Game of Capoeira). It is the official initiation, welcome and blessing by the School. All new beginners are eligible to participate in the Batizado and receive their initial belt. Another important aspect of the Batizado is the Troca de Corda (Exchange of Belt). Mestres or Professors play one or more games with the older students and acknowledge their achievements by awarding them higher belts.

We are offering a discounted GUNGA PLAN, that costs 70 pounds and includes 3 days of Capoeira Workshops, food, t-shirt and accomodation. We offer this plan for a limited time. After the 15th of March 2018, the GUNGA PLAN will go back to its original value of 90 ponds.
Please book your place in advance to avoid disappointment.
