    YouTube- capoeira brasil (samba)

    +1 for brazilian chicks shakin their asses, def would give you a reason to go and train
    I recognized the dancing Brazilian Lady immediatly and she's also a BJJ Black Belt. I even had the change to train BJJ with her for a week and no, I won't reveal her name. She's quiet shy of internet attention.

    by the way if you want to see videos of effective Capoeira look up Capoeira Vale Tudo (free fight )
    and not Capoeira Roda (which means circle but is also called Jogo which means game.)
    YouTube- Capoeirista MMA 2

    and yes plenty of Capoeira Guys are BJJ guys
    I wonder where they learnt that?

    Indeed good Sir, indeed.

    And the funny part is that everything she showed I still use, while I remember about 10% of the techniques that other BB show.
    She's a very good teacher and will from now on be invited twice a year back to the club for week seminars.

    I just want to make clear that I agree that Capoeiristas have great stamina. Let me be the one to go out on a rotten limb and say that a good cap player may have better endurance than most professional fighters.
    My argument is simply that many of the attacks are physically extravagant, thusly more taxing than your standard Muay Thai. Economically it is a poor strategy.

    Honestly, I believe you that it can be applied, I'm just hoping if I argue enough, that Brazilian woman will come over to kick me in the head.

    By the way, I originally said I expected Silva to bust out some Capoeira because he actually does train Capo on the side. Just realized that that's probably not very well known.

    A number of capoera guys in Salvador have real-world d3adly str33t fighting experience. Not because of capoera, but because of the environment they live in. I sure as hell wouldn't mess with one of them based on that fact alone.

    Would I be on them in a cage match? Probably not. Nor would I bet on a pure Iowa wrestler who didn't cross-train. That doesn't mean they can't handle themselves.

    I know, right? Learn to play some bar chords you fucking weenie. Who does he think he is, Richie Havens? Capos are for women and homosexuals.

    Jumping in on this thread, and I have no agenda here, I would quite like to be able to do what Capoeirista's do, but the video you put up showed a guy throwing two "capeoira" kicks from outside striking range, getting taken down, then winning by submission. Not the most convincing argument for the effectiveness of capoeira

    just saying
