In cooperation with ABADÁ-Capoeira San Francisco, ABADÁ-Capoeira Marin is raising funds for its 2017 Batizado and Graduation Performance.  The ceremony will take place on June 11, from 3:00-5:30pm at the Corte Madera Community Center.

The Batizado (Portuguese for baptism) is a traditional capoeira graduation ceremony.  It is an inspiring event featuring Capoeira at its best along with music, rhythm, dance and a lot of emotion. All new students will receive a capoeira nickname and play a special game of capoeira with a high-ranking capoeirista, symbolically welcoming them into the ABADÁ capoeira community.  New students will also will receive a colored cord that represents their skill and experience level, some continuing students will move up the next cord level and receive a new cord.  This event is a meaningful event in the life of both student and teacher as they each reflect on the commitment they have made to the art of capoeira and new goals to achieve.  The event will close with a dazzling roda featuring special guest artists with superb capoeira skills.

We are honored to announce that our guest of honor: MESTRANDO PIRIQUITO VERDE! 

Prior to the Batizado, Mestrando Piriquito Verde will lead a series of workshops to help local and visiting students hone their skills while interacting with the larger ABADÁ-Capoeira Community.

JORGE LUIZ DE FREITAS (“Piriquito-Verde”) was awarded the title of Mestrando in 2011.  He is an internationally-renowned university professor and author credited with creating and developing many of the core pedagogical techniques employed around the world by capoeira instructors, particularly with respect to children’s instruction.
Also, we are happy to confirm the presence of Mestra Márcia Cigarra  (CA), Professor Mobília (R.J./Brazil), Professor Arpoador (R.J./Brazil), Professora Yara (Wash/D.C.), Professor Côco (N.Y./Bronx), Professor Douglão (R.J./Br.), Instrutor Baiano (Germany) Instrutora Tulipa (S.F./CA.), Instrutor Urso Panda (S.F./CA.), Instrutor Urso (L.A./CA.), Estagiário Mosquito (O.C./CA.) and many more to come.

This Year’s Theme is CELEBRATING DIVERSITY! 

Please save the date, 6/11, on your calendars for this special event where we celebrate the growth of our school and promote fairness, dignity, diversity, and liberty for all!
