Carlos "Mosca" Armacanqui.

Quinta Feira, Setembro 28, 2006.

Eu conhecí o professor Carlos de corda marrom, na primaveira do ano 1999 quando eu comecei a treinar Capoeira. Foi ele quem me batizou de "Mosca" no meu primeiro batizado, naquele onde eu recebi a corda amarela das mãos dele.

Daí mais um ano, fui pro São Francisco à atender a primeira cerimônia de formatura nos EUA. Mestre Aceituno recebeu a graduação de Corda Vermelha das mãos de Mestre Preguiça no dia 13 de Maio do ano 2000, marcando mais de 20 anos de dedicação na Capoeira. O maior instrumento de ensinança do Mestre Aceituno foi a mixtura de um entendimento da Capoeira e uma boa base que aprendeu com seu Mestre Preguiça, e o talento impecável que ele tinha por entender as pessoas como ser humano; além da paixão pelo conhecimento da cultura brasileira. Ele era, e ainda é mais brasileiro que muitos brasileiros que eu conheço.

O fruto do trabalho dele na Capoeira e na cultura brasileira na Califórnia é representado hoje em dia por seus alunos mais graduados e a multitude de pessoas que conhecíam ele como o lider do bloco de samba Fougo Na Roupa.

Nele eu encontrei não só um Mestre de Capoeira mas também um amigo e um irmão mais velho, pronto a me aconselhar e consolar. É por causa dele que eu agora entendo muitas coisas no mundo da Capoeira, e tenho orgulho dele ter feito parte da nossa família Omulu.

Valeu por todo, Carlos. Descanse em paz, amigo meu...

My name is Hakim,
first to Carlos's biological family and to his extended families all our the world I send my deepest sympathy and condolences, we have suffered a great lost to the Arts. I had the honor of knowing Carlos back in the early days of Capoeria in Oakland / The Bay Area. Even back then, Carlos had a very gentle but noticeable spirit. He was always humble and had no problems sharing what he knew with anyone in his company. Carlos gifts and talents have been shared with so many people near an far, his spirit will live foever. I will miss you Carlos my Brother.

Peace and Blessings

My name is Richard Marroquin and I am Our Beloved Cousin of Carlos Aceituno. I am based out of Los Angeles..
I remember when I was only 14 years old and I would visit my Cousin Carlos..He would take me to his Capoeira class and share with me his gift...I fell in love with Capoeira and it's instruments..Carlos brought me into a world of beautiful Brazilian Art...He would also take me swimming with my cousin Marvin...I remember when he would take me all around town in his CRX....He gave me so much love and for that I am thankful...I am in so much pain to know that he is no longer with us...
I would like to thank the Community of The Bay Area for the Tribute that was done for our Beloved Carlos Aceituno..We are forever Thankful to all of YOU!!!
The day of his laying to rest 18 years later I closed my eyes and I prayed to him with all my might as I began to dance Capoeira in his name..
He has left me a part of him and for that I Thank Him!!! I will always remember you Cousin...I will always love you and I will always dance Capoeira in you name..May GOD Bless You and may you be in HEAVEN dancing Capoeira with all the angels and may you always watch over your family, your students, and all of us who will always and forever have you in our minds,hearts, and souls...

Tu Primo,

I like technique and discipline where I earned the title of best musician. I believe the importance of academic performance. The students were forced to keep their grades at B or above to participate in class.
