Cordão System

<< Back to Resources

These diagrams show the cord color system that Gingarte Capoeira Chicago uses to represent a student’s level of skill and years of experience. Students receive their first cord during batizado, the annual event in which new students are initiated as capoeiristas and existing students, when eligible, advance to their next cord.
