Kids Capoeira Tournament Details

Immediately following the Batizado/Cord Changing Ceremony, there will be a short break for refreshments then we are going to kick off our first ever kids tournament. The tournament is to encourage self motivation to improve our students skills and abilities and encourage them to achieve their personal best.  We want to encourage all students to go out there and try their best and to be proud of themselves for pushing themselves to their limits no matter what the outcome that day is. We will be awarding every Capoeirista with a participation ribbon.  There will be 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th & 5th place awards given to Capoeiristas in four different divisions:




1. JUNIOR DIVISION: Ages 3 – 6

  • Flow of movement – using a variety of movements in a fluid way. Moving around the roda and stringing together movements with the ginga. Demonstrating full repertoire of movement patterns and combinations.
