Please understand that I have a LOT of respect for the MA known as Capoeria. One of my close caving friends is a long time practitioner of the art and knows his stuff and I can see how it can be quite effective... provided that it's not done like this show-boating fella in the video. [yt]9018hv0cZuo[/yt] For demos and all of that, the moves, flips, and etc ... it's neat to watch and probably neater to do. But when you're in a fight/ring/wherever and you are going full blows... better to stick to what works in your art and not show off. Hope that guy learned his lesson the hard-way... from the looks of it... seems he did.
