    No idea about the rules, guys. It does look like "beat each other and make it look like capoeira", thatīs true; still, palm strikes are indeed a traditional move in that art (as well as headbutts and elbows, which I didnīt see).

    The takedowns do look like BJJ, OTOH.

    His eyes fixed upon nothing,

    It's odd that any fighting style will be based off a predictable rythm, when it's almost always more effective to be unpredictable, and fight off-rythm.

    And why the hell do you throw a spin kick when you are 6 feet out of range, other than for show? It just looks like a huge opportunity to get the **** kicked out of you at the tail end of that move. Leg kicks, shoots, or front push kick could pretty much ruin your game right about then.

    Why I will always hate Capoeira:

    My club table (Aikido and Judo Club) at the University Sports Club Info Fair is set up next to the Capoeira club. Some girl walks over with her retinue of SuperCuts sluts. "Ohhh, Capoeira...that's the Spanish dancing martial art, cool!" If you want to dance then go dance. If you want to learn to fight go fight. No sense in trying to combine the two (pre-emptive **** you to everyone who points out Aikido in my style field).

    I think we need a Kyokushin vs. Drunken Kung-Fu styled video for Capoeira.

    I have a Capoeira Muzenza DVD. They do present the "martial" side of capoeira but this is far form full contact.

    Hey, they do KO each other, and they wear no protective equipment at all.

    I'm so much of a BJJ fanboy that all I could think about when watching that is the number of missed guillotine choke opportunities!

    The KOs are more by accident than design, so it doesn't really count.

    Don't feel bad. I do kung fu and that's all I could see.

    So think on that.

    I wouldnīt say that...in the second video I posted there are some decent punches. No actual boxing, but there is some weight behind those moves.
