Watch the whole video gentlemen. Mostly it´s a regular roda with throws, but eventually some actual fights break out and the crowd has to tear the fighters away from each other.
Video no longre available. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
Try the link at the bottom of my first post.
Haha, it seems like all of the full contact ones involve the same few guys.
Cool indeed, and a useful point of reference for those whose only experience of capoeira is the sanitized "world dance" version usually seen in the US.
I like the short guy, he scared the hell out of the big black dude. Actually he scared the hell out of me.
I don't get it. Why do they only fight half the time?
Actually that "world dance" is pretty much what I see here in Brazil as well. Hardcore rodas like the one shown in that ideo are very rare, although the Muzenza group has been doing a great work in ressurecting hardcore capoeira.Quote:

Because capoeira is a game, a cultural ritual and a dance as much as it is a combat sport.Quote:
