ASCAB Capoeira Chico is having their yearly event and it is gonna be one for the record books!
For those unaccustomed batizado means baptism, and it is when you get your first cord in capoeira. For those who already have a cord they participate in a troca de cordoes, where they change to the next cord. It is a time to come together as a capoeira community and take workshops with well known capoeiristas to learn and foster new friendships.
This year, not only are we having the head of our group Mestre Doutor. We are having two of our strongest and best come to help with the event as well, Mestre Jeromin and Mestra Gata Brava.
We will have workshops on Friday August 11th and Saturday August 12th, with the batizado or cording ceremony itself happening on Saturday. There will be more info to follow, but we would love to see you all there!
