Most capoeira schools use a belt system of some type, but they tend to be different from school to school, and different from that which is typical of the Asian arts. I have never seen one that used a Blackbelt, with degrees, the way Asian arts do.OULobo said:I don't think that Capoeira uses a belt system.
Wesley Snipes trained capoeira for many years with Capoeira Mestre Jelon Viera in New York. I don't know what rank he achieved, but I believe he may have been (may still be) fairly good.
I believe he is also accomplished in Shotokan. Maybe this is where the 5th Degree comes from?
