    There is some very good evidence that Cap is a bullies art in Brazil.

    i've heard the same. They have all the dirty strikes, and i think they do concealed weapons too. The prob is, "Where is a school that teaches that kind of capoeira?"

    Maybe from what you'be seen Balloonknot, but I would bet on the guys from my friend's Capoeira group vs TKD any time.

    Balloonknot: I would also bet on Capoeira people, and I would be willing to give you pretty good odds.

    Anyone who does Capoeira is going to be in GREAT shape, have a great sense of balance, and be fast and strong.

    I can not say that about TKD practitioners.

    A friend of mine took Capoeiria for a few years, and we'd spar pretty regularly. I have to say this--while you're safe just staying out of that circle they create with their kicks, the second one lands on you (it was on my shoulder, since I needed SOMETHING to break the momentum with)... whoo, damn.

    But once you get in close, just grab and throw <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

    My skill with a sword is formidable. My skill with the s-word is flat-out lethal.

    I studied capoeira for several months while I was in South America and I think it's fair to say that there are two contrasting aspects of the art--stuff that works martially and stuff that looks cool--and that every practitioner finds their own balance.

    I found, however, that most advanced players generally had a pretty solid repertoire of workable techniques. These guys would frequently modify their kicks into faster, more linear forms in order to destroy their opponentís balance or stop them dead with a kick to the hip or knee. I also saw people using effective hand strikes and takedowns.

    It should be pointed out that while capoeira regional, with all its flashy kicks is far more popular in North America, capoeira Angola, which is played slower and lower to the ground, encourages strategy and ďdirty tricks.Ē

    I would argue that Capoeira isnít the most efficient way to learn martial arts, but those who practice it tend to have superb conditioning, somatic awareness and control. These guys can whip out a kick in the blink of an eye. And if you get hit with one of the big ones, the fight will be over.

    If you want to take the attitude that you donít have to respect the skill these guys have because you can simply shoot in or chain punch them, then good luck. I only hope they donít do anything nasty to you while youíre lying unconscious on the street.

    I haven't seen any good Capoeira fighters in the states, but I've heard some stories. I think good Capoeira schools are out there. And in BRazil... it's just f*cking vicious.

    Brazil appears to be the shaolin of this board, hopefully that is justified.
