2012 marked the 30th anniversary of Axé Capoeira. Founded in 1982 in Recife, Brazil, the group has grown over the past 30 years, boasting over 30 official schools worldwide. During 2012, I was honoured to be welcomed into the Axé family and cannot speak highly enough of the energy and passion that I witnessed amongst the students. Capoeira takes true commitment both to oneself and to one’s school. From the 30th Anniversary “Afro Brazilian Block Party” to local community demonstrations, the members of Axé Capoeira continually impressed me with their camaraderie and dedication to their sport.
