Capoeira Beribazu Argentina

Founded by Mestre Zulu in 1972, Grupo de Capoeira Beribazu had its first headquarters at Colégio Agrícola de Brasília, located in the city of Planaltina (DF). According to its founder, the Beribazu Group bases its philosophy and its actions on the binomial “art-fight”, bringing together the characteristics of capoeira as a popular origin, artistic expression and fighting modality. In 1994, after Mestre Zulu's departure, the Grupo de Capoeira Beribazu began to be led by a collective of Mestres and Contramestres, called the Mestres Council. Engaged in this context, masters, foremen and other professors of the entity always seek to expand their knowledge and professional qualification. Some chose to pursue their academic training in areas related to education, directing studies and research on topics related to capoeira. For this reason, Beribazu is an internationally recognized group for its pioneering research on capoeira, its history, its pedagogical foundations and its traditions. The Group is also active in informal education and in many other institutional spaces such as gyms, clubs, condominiums, community associations and social projects. The Beribazu Group considers capoeira a universal sociocultural heritage, relating its pedagogical practice to themes related to everyday life, and encourages its members to reflect and criticize, in the search for building a more humane and fraternal society. With the recognition of society for the work it has been developing in its forty-five years of operation, the Beribazu Group is legally governed by a Statute that defines its objectives and guides its actions. Currently, the Board of Masters of the Group is coordinated by two of its members, masters or foremen, alternating every four months. Based on the last edition of the Register of Trainees and Teachers (Dec. 2017), the Beribazu Group currently has 215 teachers, being 19 Masters (3 Master Dignifiers and 16 Master Edifiers), 15 Foremen, 2 Masters, 34 I
