“A goal is a dream with a deadline”
We are a true testament that this is true! In 2o10, when ACBX was just a teacher looking for students and a supportive wife/capoeirista who “Believed”, among the many plans we thought of, one was to one day bring our Master, Mestre Camisa, to The Bronx. For that, we needed to build a following that would understand the philosophy we learned from our master and establish ourselves as another chapter of the international ABADA association…and we did it!!!!
This is a dream come true; to be able to bring our Master, to meet, teach and interact with our students. However, it is also a big endeavor that comes with a lot of expenses. Thus, we call on all our friends and supporters to help us bring this event to life.
