“Karkara” is the name of our capoeira group, or “academy”. The group was founded in April of 2011 by Contra Mestre Betinho and his original capoeira master from Bahia, Brazil, Grand Mestre Berico. The group has grown in size since it was formed, and we currently have locations nationally in Boynton Beach and Melbourne in Florida, Maryland and internationally in Salvador, Bahia Brazil, Seville Spain and Rome Italy.
Each capoeira group follows its own cord system for students as they rise up through the ranks becoming better and more well-rounded capoeiristas. As in other martial arts, the color of the cord a capoeirista wears indicates his/her level of expertise in training. Here is the ranking system for Capoeira Karkara:
