Graduation System/Belts

The graduation system was introduced into Capoeira by Mestre Bimba, with scarves (a homage to former Capoeiristas who wore silk scarves around their neck thus believing to be protected from the cut of razorblades). Even though the scarves were not used by the students, each student kept it after receiving one. Nowadays, the graduation system may vary from one group to another.

Capoeira Aché Brasil’s graduation belt system is based on the colours of the Brazilian flag.
