    About the batizado:

    The batizado is our gathering and student graduation event we host every April and October. As part of the batizado we host a weekend of activities that include:

    • Special classes by visiting teachers
    • Demonstrations by the experts
    • Rodas for playing lots of capoeira
    • Beginners earn the first belt, or cordão (Batizado)
    • Advanced students promoted (Troca de Cordões)
    This year is unique in that it will also be the launch of the book by our mestre, Mestre Galego AKA Patrick Hilligan. The book is called "Playing in the Light" and its about Mestre Galego's path with capoeira.
