Hi all, I was idling on youtube and decided to look for some funny capoeira videos ( I find the level of athleticism and all around good mood of typically displayed by capoeirista videos very enjoyable) and found this:
Now, it has a stupid name, horrible bagwork, "interesting" punching technique and all that, but my question is, how the **** does this guy still score some hits? Is it
a) The others suck even more.
b) It's dumb luck and athleticism combined.
P.S. I hate him for that "stand on one leg and kick alot" ****.
No longer a Kaju-Critic

Because 1 - this is point sparring. Woopdy doo if he lands a point since its not really worth a hill of beans in reality
2 - he's being aggressive. Thats a big part of sparring no matter what.
3 - Anyone can edit a bunch of clips of themselves sparring (any kind of sparring) and make themselves look super awesome. I could film myself sparring for a month, cut out all the stuff and leave only the times I land a high kick and then say "LOOK HOW GREAT I AM BTW HIGH KICKS ROCK AND ALWAYS LAND M I RITE?"

Right, that's true. Favorable editing ftw. He's still very athletic, give him that. I'd love to see him get his **** ruined at least once after that stupid fucking superman stumble move he's got.

Capoeira is awesome.
It's not fighting, but it's awesome.

So now we know that capoiera can be used in a fight, be affective, win. Old video, but still nice to see again.
