    I've always wanted to try it out. I have a friend who did some in the past. When I was showing him stick fighitng footwork, he showed me some that he did in Capoeria, and it was really similar. That tells me that it could be useful if you learned to apply the techniques to live sparring.

    Of course that applies to lots of other stuff like Taiji, Xingyi, walking, running, and ballet. :)

    It seems to me to sort of fall into that range as Akido. Probably a good supplemental art if you already have really solid basics down.
    However that is just a guess.

    Much more useful in that Capoeiristas tend to be in absolutely beastly physical condition and have few illusions about direct carry-over to fighting.

    Actually a lot of it reminds me of Monkey Kung Fu more than Drunken. Drunken Monkey Capoeira sounds pretty bad ass though.

    You mean Druken Monkey Capoeria sounds bad ass.

    On topic question, is the conditioning gained worth it vs say spending that time just doing more of insert effective martial art?

    IMHO, if one already has a solid foundation in an effective art, the physical conditioning and a few unorthodox techniques would compliment the base. The individual would have to decide which would benefit them more. Strictly for entertainment, I pulled out my 'Only The Strong' video with Mark Dacascos.

    Capo scared me more than MMA to be honest. As much as a game as it is. It is still your responsibility to not get your face kicked in.

    Some localish stuff.

    Indeed it was, but it did entertain me LOL.


    From my POV, this ^^^ is good Capoeira; maybe it's just the practitioner, but I like it and believe it is an example of good physical training.
