    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Capoeira? Anyone got teh deadly real?

    I have been looking for videos of some good capoeira fights and all I have found are a whole bunch of the slow motion play fighting stuff that you see in demos. There is alot of good stuff in capoeira that I can see... but most of the actual fighting that I have seen it being used with sucks pretty bad.

    Who has teh real?

    I saw a Shogun fight in pride once (can't remember who he was fighting) and he did some flashy spinning dance-ish kick, and Bas Rutten said "...Excellent display of capoeira by Shogun..." I don't know what kind of martial arts fighting that capoeira would be particularly effective in, so I don't know how many well known fighters would actually employ it in their matches.

    The single instance of Capo I've seen used in a fight was a slight dodge and a headbutt to the solar plexus.... Though I have seen a vid of Cap in an MMA fight, which was used mostly as a way to move in an unpredictable manner from what I could tell.

    Yeah, the movement they have is what interests me the most, it seems like they would have an awesome kicking game. All the videos that I have seen so far have been pretty sad examples of its effectiveness in a fight though.

    The vid is interesting but the Capoeria seems to just be there to look flashy, since he switches straight to a 'regular' MMA skillset as soon as he's close enough to. At least, I was pretty sure Capoeria didn't include groundfighting or punches to the head.... The kicking looked interesting but didn't really seem to do anything.

    I'd be willing to bet that most effective Capoeiraists are cross training in either another striking art or BJJ to be successful at all.
