Dear friends, As we all know, at the core of Capoeira Guerreiros lies friendship, which is the motivation for our Batizados, where we get to celebrate the transitions of our students with our friends. This year is an exceptional graduation in that we are celebrating our 11th annual Batizado. At this event we are honored to have the best of Bahia in the house. In addition to Mestre George Palmares who is from Boca do Rio in Salvador Bahia we are honored to have two other amazing teachers from Bahia. Mestre Nenel, the son of Mestre Bimba will share his love for our art with us. He will be joined by Mestra Preguiça from Filhos de Bimba. For this Batizado we are hoping to bring as many of our friends together for an amazing event. Attached you will find the complete schedule for the 2017 event. On Friday night we will have workshops & an Open Roda, on Saturday there will be workshops, roda and the Batizado. We are looking forward to spending this amazing weekend with you.
