Zumbi and Mandibula spent time with both groups and visited several other capoeira clubs, culminating in a workshop given by Zumbi to show the London group some new moves. A great learning experience, the wealth of which they will share with their capoeira community back home.
The Trust also supported with Batizado and living expenses while in the UK, and organised accommodation and activities during their stay.
"Great! Three capoeiristas from South Africa attending UK Batizado. Best hospitality and support ever we've got from members of Abolicao. Relations between Abolicao Trust and Cape Peninsula University of Technology. We couldn't attend the funeral of our icon leader Nelson Mandela but Abolicao was there to comfort us."
