    I didn't know it'd been posted before. I did a search, but I guess my search-fu sucks. Back to meditating.

    And no, we don't know capoeira can be used in a fight. Cause those were'nt fights.

    Holy hell, his kicks might look cool, but his punches suck big cocks. And why is he the only one wearing a helmet at some part of the video?

    Despite popular belief there is nothing in that vid that suggests this guy acutally does capoeria. He looks more like a gymnast mixed with TKD. Even during the "play" squeance at 4:52 it looks like he never really did Capoeria but is trying to (badly) imitate what he's seen. He's just missing alot of things he doesn't have that rythm and flow that you see in real capoeria.

    As far as his fighting, it SUCKS. The tagging pple in point sparring and he doesn't seem to have any real KO power. He's athletic but I would eat him for lunch easily.

    If you want to see REAL Capoeira in a fight look a Jean Silva or find the Capoeria VT promotion that was in Brazil a few years ago. The vids were floating around the internet but I can't seem to find them now.

    Even Jean Silva only does Capoeira type things for comedy value when he's already kicking someone's arse.

    Nor is there anything in the video that suggests this guy actually kickboxes. So all in all, Worst. Title. Ever.

    I see a flexible and athletic guy being very aggressive in point sparring against people dumb enough to move straight back. His main art could be ballet and he would do as well.

    BTW that video was from 98, check out his website and his 2002 video:
