OUR MISSION: ABADÁ-Capoeira San Francisco (ACSF) works to preserve, develop, and share the martial art of capoeira with integrity, and to use capoeira to ignite positive change in individuals and in communities. ACSF has the mission to address the social and economic disparities that exist in our communities by inspiring personal and athletic success through artistic, cultural, physical and health education. Through multi-faceted programs, ACSF is constantly addressing prominent social issues including obesity, youth violence, racial and gender stereotyping, and the real cultural and economic inequalities to accessing quality physical and cultural training programs. By consistently seeking out new creative ways of exploring and sharing the dynamic aspects of the multi-faceted art of capoeira and related arts, ACSF remains a pioneering force in the preservation and development of Brazilian cultural arts.
Founded in 1991 by Mestranda Márcia Cigarra, ACSF offers professional instruction and performance of capoeira at its Mission-based Brazilian Arts Center, and partnering sites throughout the Bay Area.
