    Essentially, he was doing regional/contemporanea style capoeira, but capoeira is capoeira, just differences in approach.

    If I had choreographed the capoeira, it would've looked more like this :)

    I had a video of that fight at one point; I don't think I still do. Hulk's standup looked pretty much like kickboxing except for one flippin' SWEET spinny-kick he threw at the beginning.

    i think capoeira is training the mind and body (and the spirit/soul, if u are into that). thats kind of what i think all martial arts is about...

    i think capoeirstas are misguided if they are thinking of doing handstands i an real fight
