Students develop differently over the years. Promotions are not based only on the amount of time a student spends in class, but also on the skill level of that student. So, two students who have trained for the same amount of time may not receive the same cord at a Batizado. This is why there are overlaps in the number of years it takes to receive a cord.

  • Crua (Raw) – New student
  • Yellow/Raw – Transition
  • Yellow – Beginner
  • Orange/Raw – Transition
  • Orange – Beginner Intermediate
  • Blue/Red – Intermediate
  • Blue – Graduado
  • Green – Instructor
  • Purple – Professor
  • Brown – Formando
  • Black – Formado

Some years after receiving the black cord and develop his own work the capoerista earn the title of Mestre given by their master.
