    This is most interesting, it was my understanding that Capoeira was brought to Brazil by African slaves but they had to disguise their fighting abilities from the "Masters" by making it appear to be a Dance form to the untrained eye.
    I would like to see a video of Ngolo in particular to see if it is more/less or even the same as Capoeira in terms of acrobatic Dance looking or is more obviously a way of fighting.

    I have also read/heard that the reason there is no real punching in Capoeira was because it was assumed that both combatants would most likely be armed with a knife or some weapon and the kicks were to give extra advantage and reach. (?)

    I have also been informed the same "knife carrying" being a given was the basis of early French Savate being heavily foot orientated.
    We are currently working on filming Ngolo and African kicking systems, so that people can see the real origins of Capoeira.

    You are quite right and seem to know a lot about AFRICAN MARTIAL SYSTEMS.Our aim is to simply to practise and preserve these fighting systems for future generations of Africans and people around the world, who would like to experience combat from a different cultural perspective.

    Authentic African martialsystems are practised all over the continent but unknown by the mainstream we aim to change that.

    Our future proiect also includes filming Testa also known as Reisy, Ras or Chinkelat a martial system of the Tigray people of Eriteria with emphasis on headbutting in addition to other empty hand techniques, and also Walansoo grappling of the Oromo of Ethiopia which is similar to Jujitsu but purely African.

    in African terms....to "wrestle" someone means to put them on thier back whether its a sweep, kick, takedown, punch, throw, slam etc.

    once youve put the opponent on thier back youve wrestled them.......is this correct @ zuarkong?
