    There are other threads to discuss the combat effectiveness of an art, but there are a number of Capoeira guys cross training and doing fairly well in the Western Canadian MMA circuit that you should probably debate it with them.
    I beleive that. I can imagine that a practitioner of capoeira would be in good shape.

    I trained with a guy who did MMA and capoeira. Lot of acrobatic guard passes.

    There are a few guys out there who are using Capoeira in MMA. A few from North America but there's also a guy from Brazil who does the flip kicks and what not in the cage. Looks goofy as all get out but he pulls it off.

    That Vancouver school has an MMA class: http://www.axecapoeira.com/classes.php?placeID=1

    I remember hearing that they had guys from Brazil teaching there who do "Morganti Ju-Jitsu," which is apparently some sort of grappling/karate hybrid style that's produced some good MMA fighters.

    So, I tried to post this 5 times already, but looking up **** on Sherdog crashed my PC over and fucking over, **** Sherwood in his fat ass.

    Anyway, my uncle used to go there, he said it was fun, but he was there for dancing/fitness. He also said one time some MMA guys from another local gym came down thinking they'd tool everybody but left black and blue. At the '01 Tiger Balm Internationals during the evening show (fights, demos, etc) I saw the top student (at the time, dunno if he's still there) Alex jump at least 15 (but I and others there at the time estimated 20, he went higher than the backboards on the basketball nets) feet in the air and do 2 full flips, from a running start, no trampoline, no tricks, it was the most amazing thing I ever saw another human do.

    However, for MMA, I'd go to:

    www.revolutionfightteam.com

    Fight Finder

    Pele is currently training there, so are...

    Kalib Starnes

    Kultar Gill

    Tim Thurston, who I grappled with in my (and his) first ever grappling match at a tourney, in which he was dropped down into my weightclass (only 1 other guy in his class) and I was scared shitless, he looked like a monster to me at the time, he told me afterward that he felt pretty silly going into it (he was a professional athlete, boxer, I was lanky and a noob at everything)...I lost badly (by decision), he beat everyone in the division with ease

    Morganti Ju-Jitsu has some really weird rules. I did the tournament in Richmond, it's Kyokushin when you're standing, the moment one person is grabbed it turns into a Judo match except with no points for throws, the goal is to submit. Despite that they stand the fight up really quickly. Interesting to do, but definitely bizarre.
