2019 Batizado Time!

It is time for our kids to show off what they have learned and earn their new cords. We have events coming very soon in both Northampton (Saturday 15th June) and Grantham (Sunday 16th June). We have special guests for each event and will be running workshops for all, so it’s not just for kids!

We are celebrating 10 years of Capoeira in Northampton this year, so come along and join in the fun.

Our Batizado: Cambridge, 12-14 October 2018

There will be a special Batizado just for kids on Sunday 14th from 3pm. See the official event page for more information.
