    Fixed that for you, and I agree.

    Your right.
    I would rather fight an Aikido dude than a seasoned Ballet dancer..but both circle beautifully.

    I would equate the ballet dancer to the serious Capoeira practitioner. Because of pure conditioning and strength, this person will probably take someone who doesn't seriously train in an alive art.

    The basic concept that Aikido teaches, that circular motions are powerful, is fucking cool. People engaged in combat spooning and doing high kicks in pajamas can be objects of ridicule as well. I'm just sayin'.....

    I'd think a martial art based on the Fibonacci sequence would be fucking cool too, unless it failed a lot.

    One of my instructors used to say "See one strike, feel three".

    I think that could be adapted.

    See one, feel one.

    See two feel three.

    See three feel five...

    :p
