March 28th to April 2nd 2016
The Southern California and Global Movement Communities are realizing that the walls between movement styles are disappearing day by day. This is not a dilution of the roots, but an appreciation of the common ground we have. An appreciation of the things that we can teach to and learn from each other.
Capoeira Batuque Santa Ana, Loftoeira, Firestorm Free Running, Strength Project, Academy of International Dance, and our partners are taking this opportunity to bring the various movement communities together to celebrate and learn from one another.
Movement Styles and Workshops Include:
Tai Chi Chuan
The Warrior Class - Mindfulness
Plus: Open Sessions, Socials, Battles, Performances, DJs
Culminating in the Capoeira Batuque Santa Ana & Hollywood Batizado
Apr 2 Afternoon
These workshops are back to back with some breaks for food and hydration. Please click on any workshop to get the details.

Physical altercations and violence are inherent aspects of the martial arts as is the Mindful, Disciplined, and Ceremonial control of violence and physical altercations.
Our main goal is to nurture the discipline, respect and physical mastery of Martial and other arts and to control/contextualize the violence in a healthy way.
All altercations must begin, end, and be resolved in the training space, ring, roda.
Any physical attacks taking place outside of the above context will be dealt with swiftly through legal apparatus.
Non Physical forms of violence: not limited to, but including verbal abuse, sexism, racism, homophobia, ageism, will not be tolerated.
