Grupo Axé Capoeira Kansas City

Batizado & Troca de Corda

June 23-25th



Special Guests from Canada!

Mestrando Testa and Contra-Mestre Osso Duro

Special Guest from Brazil! Graduado Kallado

A Batizado is a traditional ceremony in which students of Capoeira are awarded their first belt by a Mestre or another high-level leader of Capoeira – typically from our Grupo. Students who have already received their first belt will also have an opportunity to change their belt (Troca de Corda) for the next level belt. 

This year Kansas City will be celebrating all of your

hard work and commitment.


The Ceremony will be held on Sunday June 25th and will consist of a cultural music and dance presentation followed by a ceremonial Roda.

The big event is always preceded by Capoeira workshops (June 23rd and 24th). These classes will be taught by our special guests who have been invited to Kansas City to share with us their experience and knowledge of Capoeira while giving witness and support to our work here in Kansas City.  This year we will celebrate together on Saturday June 24th at our "FESTA JUNINHA" - A traditional Brazilian celebration!
