Thanks, "don". I have two by Nestor, one by Acordeon, and one by god knows who. I appreciate the the help, and my hat's off to you. I can't remember the last time I got punked at "Capoeira Jeapordy" :)

This is an improvement over what some groups do (i.e., totally avoiding physical contact). However its pretty tame to some of the stuff that goes on in some places. I know places where they have fight rodas and people routinely get choked out or knocked out.

Eagles may soar, but Weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.
