Capoeira Europameisterschaft 2016

The “European Capoeira Tournament: Camarada’s Duel”

is an event that Mestre Mão Branca has held in partnership with Mestre Sandro in Switzerland since 2007.

The purpose of the event is to promote an exchange of technical experiences, foundations, and styles, while preserving Capoeira as part of humanity’s cultural heritage.

The main goal of this event is to encourage communities to practice the art of Capoeira in order to promote a healthier, more conscious and dynamic society through sports.

2016 brings a very special edition of the European Capoeira Tournament!!!

The tournament finals will be held at the Olympics Museum in Lausanne, Switzerland, paying tribute to Brazil as the host of the 2016 Olympics and Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro.

As a result, the tournament will contribute to the expansion of Capoeira’s trajectory, gaining visibility and recognition while giving merit to the entire Capoeira community.
