ANGÁ's Belt System

In Capoeira, the 'rope' ('corda') that is worn around the waist  represents one's level and responsibilities as a capoeirista. We get the  rope during the 'Batizado' or baptism, which is held annually in the  fall. It's a great festival that brings together the Masters and  Teachers from several countries. After a week of workshops and capoeira  circles, our guests play with each student and tie their new belts on  during a spectacular show to which relatives and friends are invited.

Meaning of the colors in our belts

In Angá Capoeira, the colors of the ropes symbolize the various components of nature, forming a balanced set.


  • Green is the color of the forest. It symbolizes the Growth and Hope developed through Capoeira.
  • Yellow is the color of the Sun and the Gold. It symbolizes the vitality and value that strengthen the dedication to Capoeira.
  • The Blue and the color of the Sky and the Sea. It symbolizes the opening to the infinite horizons that we can discover and learn in the universe of Capoeira.
  • The color White is formed by the set of all other colors. It symbolizes the understanding of all horizons provided by Capoeira.
