Whatever they are, they're going to my list:) :asian:
 
I saw this art referred to recently as a mixture of capoeira, BJJ, and (Western) boxing. The web pages I found were in Portuguese, however.
 
I had no idea about all of these Martial Arts.
 
correct me if im wrong but isnt, lucha libre... just the mexican version of WWE????
 
Lucha libre/luta livre is more like bjj without gi.
A wrestling art,yes.

What I織ve heard of other Brazilian arts besides these famous ones is that they are some kind of karate spin-offs mostly. :)
 
Sorry I don't have names for these, but I speak more spanglish than spanish.
One of the ones I saw was a chilean style that looked like aiki jujitsu chin-na, pressure points. and boxing. I only saw this guy about twice, and our accents are too thick to comprehend each other (mine is probably too american). The other style I have seen is from the chiapas area. It was more along the lines of a okinowan kobudo/philipino martialarts mix mix.


Sorry I don't have any more info but as I said earlier my spanish isn't exactly good.
 
oh, both of these guys were also farmers from the more rural regions of both countries.
 
The current issue of Budo Intl. (June 2003) includes an article on Capoeira Gerais of Minas (Brazil).
 
Sorry to revive dead thread, but I had to reply to this.

What was the style called? More about it?

I was a peace observer in chiapas for two weeks and did not see anything like a native martial style.

correct. Lucha Libre is a grappling style that puts more emphasis on leg locks, than chokes and arm locks.

Any Chilean systems? We really have nothing at all from the West Coast of South America.
I don't know if it can be considered a martial art, and I dont know the name..........but....there is a ritual fight in the andes mountains of chile where combatants where traditional head gear and wrapped hands, then pound on each other until blood is shed for the gods. They are drunk when they do it, so I guess we'd have to call saloon fights a martial art if we called this a MA. however, there is religious aspects of it, they wear ritualized gear, and there might be a boxing regiment before the fight.

I'll try to find out more though...
