ABADA-Capoeira Bronx | 718.884.5000 | info@acbx.org | acbx.org

Dear ACBX Community, 

We want to take a moment to express our most sincere gratitude for being part of our Capoeira family this year. It is an understatement to say this has been a year like no other - in many ways (negative and positive ways). At ACBX, we were preparing for a big year of celebrations with a beautiful performance by our hard-working students and a study trip/capoeira retreat to the Centro Educacional Mestre Bimba (CEMB) in Brazil, to commemorate 10 years of ABADA-Capoeira Bronx. COVID-19 changed our plans drastically.  And instead, we spent most of our year on zoom, teaching and delivering our programs virtually. 

While a lot has changed, one thing remained the same; our close-knit ACBX Capoeira community continued to be united and supportive of the collective well-being. 

Whether we trained via Zoom from our living rooms/bedrooms/basements or outdoors, we have managed to maintain a connected community. Even at times when some may have had to take time off from participating in class, most of ACBX has remained active and/or connected in some capacity. 

We want to express our most sincere gratitude for being here, regardless of space.  

Earlier this year we had to make the difficult decision to break our lease and let go of our beautiful studio space. We worked tirelessly to make that studio a space for Capoeira arts and the community at large. While it was hard to see a dream shattered so unexpectedly, the experience of letting go of our studio while managing to maintain our students actively engaged and training, proved that what makes us strong is the connection that capoeira builds among its community members, not the walls of a space. 

In the future, we will have a new space, but for the time being, our classes will continue to be virtual via Zoom and/or outdoor periodically, weather permitting and following NYS COVID prevention protocols. 

We are grateful for Capoeira, for our community and for us - thank you for being a part of this.  

We wish you and yours a safe, healthy and meaningful holiday season.  


With gratitude, 
Prof. Coco and Jennifer / Gda. Franjinha

”Andrew's experience in Capoeira has been the best. He has learned tremendously and is always walking to class determined to learn to be a great Capoeirista. It is funny to see that after class, he would go home and teach his sister to do Capoeira and would enjoy practicing in the living room. At the beginning he was shy, but all of sudden he wanted all the days to be Saturday so he could go to his class. Then, it all changed with the Covid-19. He missed being in class with all but that didn't stop us and we were able to stay connected with the class now from home, and it is all because of the effort that ABADA Capoeira Bronx - Professor Coco and Jennifer, put in. I am happy to say that we have enjoyed having our child in Capoeira and I know that Andrew is very happy too. And I say this because he has told the whole world that he is in Capoeira class. His smile and effort says it all.”

- Gladys Maza, mother of Andrew Maza part of ACBXKIDS program.
