Be part of the worldwide day of giving, do like Hillary aka “Tempo” and consider creating a facebook fundraiser to support ACBX, click here to get started.

Hillary, better known as “Tempo” to her capoeira family, is a freshman student at Hunter College and an ACBX student. She got the nickname of “Tempo” which translates into “Time” because of her ability to calmly apply capoeira techniques to her opponent at the precise time for it to be effective. Here is an excerpt of what she wrote on her facebook fundraiser, reflecting on her capoeira story. 

“When I started Capoeira, it worked as an outlet. It took me some time to join the class consistently. After almost every class, I'd remember how I messed up, or I'd panic and believe I offended someone, even when nothing bad happened. My anxiety and self-loathing had extended to something I truly enjoyed. This lasted for months, but in spite of this, I kept showing up. The passion of the music and the spirit of the Capoeiristas made me want to try harder. My teacher, Professor Coco, always saw something in me that I did not see in myself. I refused to give up something that was giving me joy.”

Living legend of Capoeira, Mestre João Grande visits ACBX. 

Last month, ACBX was honored with the visit of Mestre João Grande, one of the oldest (perhaps, the oldest) living student of Mestre Pastinha, who was the greatest exponent of Capoeira Angola. His visit gave the current generation of capoeiristas a chance to connect with the roots of our art form, hear timeless stories highlighting perseverance, respect, integrity, dedication and all-round life wisdom. It was a day that will forever live in our hearts.
Mestre was warmly welcomed to ACBX with lively music and he immediately responded singing with his iconic voice, emanating the “axe” (positive energy) that makes him so loved in our community. In a candid chat with students, Mestre talked about his first encounter with Capoeira, and his beginning days training with Mestre Pastinha, back in 1950! Mestre reinforced the importance of giving value to the art saying, “You are learning and training capoeira not for your school but for the world.”
