Capoeira In The Curriculum

CDO India has devised learning systems based on Capoeira movement and Pedagogy for different age groups that spread across Primary, Middle School and High School, Class I to XII.

Assessments

Internal: CDO India conducts regular student assessments. As capoeira is a non competitive sport, there is no grading system, however the assessments are created in a way that the child competes with him/herself.

International: Every year, CDO India holds a Batizado ceremony, a baptism of new students and graduation of senior students to the next level. Students receive their belts depending on the years of training and the level achieved. International masters from all over the world are invited to this ceremony.
